Just Spotted! SpasticsPlastic

09Feb09

Creative director and partner of an advertising and design agency Sunny Side Up, Somak kneads clay when he’s not doing ads. Here are a few from his collection SpasticsPlastic. I loved the way he gives each a disctinct character, in name and form; makes me wonder which came first.

      thanks suman! with clay, i pretty much figured it out on my own but a bit of experience with terracotta from sculpture and pottery classes way back in art school helped.
      i’d say pick some clay up and start playing around. the clay will teach you everything else.

    Phew!!!

    I thought as much, had to be you, i could see those characters coming out of your brain. Chalo good to know. I was wanting to feature the moochwala in my magazine but cant since they are not sold any where.

    Good to hear from you Somak….take care.

    hi mrudul,
    you mean fine arts baroda? yes, am the one! you didn’t leave your second name but since you asked, i am guessing you’re the same mrudul from applied arts, MSU.
    i don’t sell my clay work.. not yet, cause i haven’t figured out a medium that is permanent. these are made of soft clay on wire armatures and don’t last too long. i reuse the clay after i’ve shot the figures.
    cheers!
