D A R S H A N SINGH GREWAL
b. 1988, Patiala, Punjab, India
I am an architecture graduate, exploring various dimensions of life culture to evolve my understanding and reflect my experiences through an experimental art practice that encompasses poetry, visual art, craft, spatial installation, performance art and film.
Along with my independent explorations, I aspire to work in teams or in collaboration for Public Art, Socio-Cultural Projects, Art Workshops, Exhibitions and Events.
