D A R S H A N SINGH GREWAL

b. 1988, Patiala, Punjab, India

I am an architecture graduate, passionately working on various art & design projects since 2013, my work ranges from poetry to performance, visual art to craft development and spatial installation to set design.

In 2017, I have started an alternative educational project ‘Shilp Khel’ that integrates crafts & games to design creative activities for the experiential learning of kids.

While making a metaphoric musical film, I continue to explore life culture & aspire to develop some interactive public art projects for collaborative learning & exchange.

I enjoy nomadic travelling & free spirited mystic singing.
