D A R S H A N SINGH GREWAL

b. 1988, Patiala, Punjab, India

+91 9888 744 113 / logingrewal@gmail.com / http://www.darshansinghgrewal.com

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

While crafting short metaphoric films, I continue to explore the holistic life culture, seeking collaborative consciousness for sustainable community living & aspire to develop a slower and deeper learning space for self growth.

 I enjoy nomadic travelling, connecting with nature & free spirited mystic singing.
