Latte Coffee Portrait — Payal Shrishamal — ₹4999

Using coffee to make such beautiful portraits is an art in itself. This unique art form is booming and gaining momentum by the second.

Diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at a young age, Payal knew she wasn’t like other children. Payal thinks that people who look at her with pity as she uses a wheelchair, should stop doing so. She believes that there are disabilities in all people, the only difference lies in how much visible they are to other people.

Go on a coffee date with your valentine and surprise them with this latte coffee portrait of them by booking it here.

Upside Down Portrait — Ajay Jayaprakash — ₹1799

Upside-down painting/drawing is usually done to trick your brain into painting the actual details your eyes see instead of what your brain thinks parts should look like.

Ajay Jayaprakash had a normal life with small ups and downs but was living happily until he met with a tragedy which changed his life, views and values forever. It was a bike accident which made him lose his leg. He was thrown into a deep void mentally and he never really thought he could bring his life back to normal. One of the greatest tragedies in life is to lose your own sense of self and accept the version of you that is expected by everyone else, says Ajay. Art is something close to his heart. He specializes in painting portraits upside down, a skill for which he has been widely appreciated. South Indian superstar Prithviraj is amongst those who had lauded his skills.

Whether your life is upside down or the other way around, your valentine will always be your side, so gift them this trendy custom portrait to express your love here.

Digital Portrait — Anjan Satish — ₹3999

Anjan has overcome numerous obstacles to be where he is today. With cerebral palsy, he dealt with speech, hearing and vision impairments. However, this did not limit his potential or stop him from beating the odds. His colorful world and optimistic mindset resonates in every piece of art he makes. He specializes in Digital Portraits, which are a great way to create artwork that’s expressive using image manipulation techniques and a stylus to create a one of a kind artwork inside image editing and digital drawing software.

Gift a slice of modern world drawings with a special touch by Anjan Satish to your love by visiting here.

Acrylic Painting Portrait — Basil Joseph Varghese and Vyshak Ettukudukka — ₹9999

Acrylic paint is one of the most versatile mediums, and one of the least toxic and it dries into a flexible, water-resistant, and durable surface to which subsequent layers of paint can be added without disturbing the underlying layers. Acrylic Portraits look most life-like and detailed.

Basil Joseph Varghese is a 23 year old person who has Asperger’s syndrome which comes under the Autism Spectrum Disorders. His love for painting and drawing is quite evident. For the past seven years, he has been learning the art as well. Basil loves to watch movies and listen to music. A caring and gentle soul, Basil finds happiness when people appreciate and recognize his talent. He is overjoyed whenever someone purchases his painting.

Vyshak Ettukudukka was born in Kerala, as a healthy baby but without both hands. Even with his unfortunate physical condition, little Vyshak was a charming and pleasant boy in his childhood. Besides the school exhibitions, his paintings were selected for the art show of ‘Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan. Now he is a professional artist.

You could give life to your valentine till eternity by picking the Rockstar Basil or inspiring Vyshak here.

Charcoal Pencil Portrait — Anshuman Kar, Varun Naren and Swaminathan Manivannan — ₹1499

Charcoal portraits are made with charcoal pencils which are designed to be similar to graphite pencils while maintaining most of the properties of charcoal, they are often used for fine and crisp detailed drawings, while keeping the user’s hand from being marked.

Overcoming challenges on every level, Anshuman Kar is slowly and steadily gaining recognition as an emerging Outsider Artist with prestigious exhibitions in India and Middle East under his belt. Deriving inspiration from nature and the world around him, Anshuman seems to have an amazing sense of colors. It is almost like communication for Anshuman has taken the form of Art.

Varun Naren is a 20 year old young adult with FragileX syndrome, a single gene cause of autism and most common inherited cause of intellectual disability. Art is Varun’s medium of expression and emotions. He enjoys drawing with music. He loves bright colors and likes to blend oil pastels as they turn into beautiful colors and shades.

The journey of 29 years of being an artist started at the age of 5, and even today Swaminathan Manivannan is equally passionate about his art. He will never take off his pen until and unless he finishes his artwork, come what may. All of Swaminathan’s artwork has his unique style of a perceptual slant added to it. His artwork adorns murals, corporate offices, logos, letterheads, etc. In fact the visiting card and letterhead of the Chess Grandmaster, Viswanathan Anand has Swaminathan’s artwork.

Ignite your charcoal this Valentine’s by choosing between the nature loving Anshuman, incredible Varun or the unique Swami here.
