What makes Mumbai so special? Magnificent structures? Quaint lanes? Bollywood? Or the fact that it is a financial capital? For Saurabh, like many others, Mumbai is much more. It is 'his jaan'. As an artist, he has explored various parts of the city, but he feels the most connected to the city while sketching. Bringing the stories alive in the painting is challenging yet liberating. He has spent the last decade in the advertising industry, and has a definitive creative process. As part of our ongoing exhibition, join us in a conversation with the artist Saurabh Chanderkar, as he takes us through his creative process. The session entails anecdotes about his journey and the dots that join - Art, Advertising And Heritage.

Time: 11 AM
Venue: KHAKI Lab, 302, Hari Chambers, Above 1441 Pizzeria, Shahid Bhagat Singh Road, Fort, Mumbai - 400 001
