In April 2017, photographers Prasad Naik and Manish Mansinh opened up dayDREAM, a store for affordable art, an idea inspired by the Ravi Varma prints that occupy nearly every Indian home.

And then there's the subject of art aesthetics - what looks best where?

 

This weekend, dayDREAM will have its first 'show' in the city, giving visitors to take an art-fuelled, visual journey across the world.

This is the first time Bengaluru will hsot a collection by Naik and Mansinh, whose store in Kala Ghoda has become a sort after destination for art lovers who don't want to a burn a hole in their pockets. Their work showcases everything from exotic destinations and whimsical fashion to bold typography and playful illustrations. "Most of the work I do is spontaneous, when something triggers or inspires me," says Manish, co-founder, dayDREAM Prints. "Good aesthetic work is always an inspiration, whether its' a piece of art, craft, graphic design, architecture, product design, typography, or even a film." To him, art is a source of pleasure and recreation. "Professionally," he says, "I want to see more beautiful walls, homes and spaces."

Prasad Naik's photography is inspired by his own travel experiences. "It's my journey of streets around the world," he says. "Moments of travel experience, a peek into a moment of city life that is raw and untouched."

The dayDREAM exhibit will take place at Chairs & Company, a firm that believes in representing Indian artists and craftmanship. "This show is one of a kind," says Deena Rodrigues, Founder, Chairs & Company. "You will see stunning travel photography, reimagined portraits, illustrations, architectural prints and abstract art.
