Suicide Sari by Kallol Datta, 2011
Kallol Datta uses unusual, and occasionally provocative, prints on his outfits.
Datta developed the ‘suicide print’ for this sari with artist Indranil Ram Kamath, integrating an image of a stick-figure hanging by the neck into the fabric design. Datta’s shoe-tread print patterns the underskirt.
Worn with a loose fitting blouse, this ensemble is a daring alternative to the conventional sari.
The OSPAAAL posters in particular reveal the idealistic spirit at the core of the Cuban Revolution, intent on eradicating imperialism globally.
This is a screen printed poster depicting a stylised monkey, with orange hair and a blue face and hands, against a black background.
