Messenger of Oneness: Neeraj Arya



  (Founder of Neeraj Arya’s Kabir Cafe)

A child named Neeraj Arya who was hearing Kabir’s words and other folk melodies because his father was a great follower of the 15th-century saints and poets now has become the founder of a rock band named Neeraj Arya’s Kabir Cafe and is renowned all over the globe.

Being a school drop out and bad in studies he saw The Kabir Project Documentary  Has Anhad in 2005 which blew his mind and he got interested more in this whole poet’s philosophy thing and then he met his guru Prahlad Singh Tipaniya and learned all his folk melody skills from him. Arya thinks that the way his guru is living his life and he thinks that he is Kabir for him.

Earlier he started to play all his dohas and sakhis with a mix of rock on his guitar on streets of Mumbai as a part of Natural Streets for Performing Arts(NSPA). Then in 2012, he met violinist Mukund Ramaswamy and then they started performing as a duo. Ramaswamy mentions that the uniqueness in the voice of Neeraj is so much that it does not seem that you are listening to any Doha or 15th-century poems.

Times passed by and slowly slowly, Neeraj formed a complete band which includes Arya as vocalist and guitarist, Ramaswamy as a violinist, mandolin player Raman Iyer, bassist Britto KC, and percussionists Viren Solanki and Vicky Bramhankar. They all are now full-time musicians and have left their day jobs and even left their families to make Kabir more accessible and they as a group work very hard toward their aim. They perform at live shows in festivals, weddings, anniversaries and funerals.

Arya never forgets to take lessons from his guru and before any album or performance he understands the words and the contents of Bhajans. Their debut album was Panchrang in 2016 and their live album Kabir Cafe Life in 2018.

Till date, Neeraj and his group have performed in more than 900 shows and that’s a huge number.

Arya’s aim is to spread the message of ONENESS among all and he wants to defeat this evil of religion and want to see the whole world as one religion i.e. Human.

Pop Art Interior Styling 
Pop Goes The Art

Pop art – is a provocative and daring, bold and colorful interior style. Pop art adds another dimension to your walls. It’s colorful, funky, lively and adds character to the walls. Pop art is full of fun and colour, but the process of creating an artwork is never that simple. Pop art gives artists the freedom to experiment. It’s a very dynamic and agile artform that just lets you be.

You can never have enough of pop art, as soon as you finish one piece, you can’t wait to start with another one. That’s a kind of joy that I might not always experience with other art forms that I practice. Usually, you wait for the process to end and want to take some time off to rejuvenate. Some artworks are more demanding, and you end up investing all your energy into them. Pop art doesn’t tire me and it’s like a constant flow of ideas in my head that need an outlet. Sometimes, artists need time off to reclaim the energy they have put into their artworks, but with pop art it’s usually a continuous process.

Also, the burst of colour is inspiring. It’s close to what I am deep down. I am a cheerful and happy person and I think pop art reflects that facet of my personality very well. The faces I create in my pop art are happy, assertive, confident faces. They are simple, straightforward and easy to interpret. In most cases what I create is what the viewer sees in these artworks.  

What’s fascinating about pop art is its diversity. The Marilyns and Fridas are not necessarily similar to another artist’s rendition of the same personalities. The works of the stalwarts of this artform such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, James Rosenquist are each very different from the other. What binds them together is their desire to think out of the box and their experimentative works. They turned the most mundane objects into artworks and gave the viewer a perspective to view art in everything. Seeing art in everyday life adds a joy to it. Pop art deserves the credit for democratizing art and making it a part of everyday life.

The universality of pop art is yet another of its qualities. It appeals to everyone, right from an experienced art aficionado to a person who may not have been exposed to different forms of art.

Pop art can enhance your decor if placed correctly. The foyer and walkways are perfect spaces fit pop art. The good thing is that pop art fits in well anywhere. Kid’s rooms or teenagers rooms mix and match with framed black and white photographs. Pop art placed in juxtaposition with black and white photography will add so much value to your walls. Because pop art is so bright there is always a risk of cluster or overcrowding. Don’t make the walls too busy, and intersperse with abstracts in pastels to make it lighter on the eyes. 

Pop art’s simplicity stands out and makes it a popular art form and that’s where it derives its term. In today’s times, when digital media has made content creation of all kinds accessible to different people, pop art fits in perfectly for its appeal and accessibility.
