His intention behind the series was to merge music and art in a way that will appeal to the younger generation. He completed the photo series in 20 days. Rajwansh, who is a self-taught artist, started with Photoshop in 2008, but eventually switched to vector illustrations and digital art. âWhen I started and created a photo manipulation, it was a huge success for me. I thought I had done the best in the world. This self-appreciation took a hit when I started looking at the work of other artists around the world, âhe said.

He continued because of his inspirations, especially from artist Ankur Patar, one of the best digital artists in India. Patar’s recent work includes the rehearsal of the famous painter Rembrandt’s lost masterpiece. “I am lucky that he supported me in my journey,” he added.
Rajwansh is personally a huge fan of American music, songs and compositions. âI think the exhibition of western culture in India has succeeded in bringing the best of both worlds. The fusion of music such as “Coke Studio” on MTV India is a prime example. Likewise, art has played a big role in bringing the two cultures together. He added that this fusion influences interesting works of art as it helps to understand and appreciate different methods and cultures.
This thought process worked for his series âDesi Kalakaarâ. Where else could you visualize Baba Snoop Lal or Justin Nath Bieber?
After working on a more attractive project internationally, Rajwansh plans to focus more on his home state, Punjab, and create works of art that represent the state.
