After Rohan Sippy’s incredible musical on Day One, The Chivas Studio in Mumbai didn’t look like it could get any more entertaining. But day two was equally fab as it brought together the enigmatic Art Foyer and the funkiest Art Jam I’ve ever seen.

I loved Jatin Kampani’s mesmerizing photographs and the artwork by Paresh Maity. Each image as beautiful as a painting captured by his Jatin’s lens celebrates Chivas through the captivating beauty of his muse, a woman.

His work titled Phantasmagoria depicted the woman in her different avatars, a mother, a dreamer, a pro creator, cocooned, hiding and yet free to fly.

Paresh Maity’s paintings transformed mundane places into dreamy lands you want to visit. His painting of the Ganges symbolized the washing away of all impurities. My personal favorites were the ones he drew of Kerala with its culture and unique rituals and the one of Delhi which brings this multifaceted city to life.

There was a soul stirring live performance by popular fusion band, Mrigya. But, the coolest part of the evening was the Art in Action/ Art Jam with Brian Olsen.

Apart from being a talented artist, Brian’s a great performer who uses music as an inspiration to create masterpieces from blank canvases.

I was totally impressed by the man’s creativity and my favorite part was when he painted Angela Johnson live to the tunes of Mrigya.

The portrait looked shockingly similar to her and his energy was so infectious. I loved his black paint-splattered outfit and his artistic talent really blew our minds.

Some snazzy Chivas cocktails with unusual names like Rebellion without a cause, My Velvet Lady, Sonny Collins and the one I had called Mutiny at the Bounty combined with some scrumptious finger food really seemed like the perfect ending to a therapeutic evening. One things’ for sure. Chivas knows how to party in style!

    Angela girl looks totally unapprochable, not warm at all, rigid like she has a stick up her behind or something with her head already floating in the air. she might want to bring that attitude down a few notches.

    Can someone please tell me where angela is from? more over where is her accent from, it sounds american with hints of british as if that of someone who has lived in us for a long time, but now is picking up brit/indian accent. I totally agree with u, she looks like she thinks she is the shiz.
