#SanskritiGrafitti By G Sian at Curve Leicester

A look at artist G Sian`s work on the glass of Curve Leicester entitled Sanskriti Grafitti.
The artist has created a work in which he visualizes the breadth of his understanding of the world contrasting the movement of the reflections and activity in and around the theater with the static lines of the work creating a multilayered effect that when viewed close encourages the viewer to explore the piece so as not to miss any part.
When the piece is viewed from distance the viewer is enveloped into the large scale of piece and becomes part of the work.
The artist himself has worked across various media including  cinema, painting, theater, design, linguistics and classics.
for more information on the artists work see

My film aims to give a overview of the piece and act as a documentation and record of it before its removed in late October / early November 2016.
