Chippiwara

Led by Tanveen Ratti, Chippiwara continues artisanal work in traditional ateliers, with craftsmen and women breathing new life into the art of Marquetry and Taarkashi that have been practiced in their families for generations.

For the show, Chippiwara creates a panel featuring flamingos taking off from Mumbai’s Sewri area, known for being a consistent stop in the birds’ migratory pattern. The flamingos on Chippiwara’s exquisite panel are an allegory for Art Deco in Mumbai, exquisite, eye-catching and elevating the spirit.
