Holy United Colours of Benetton Addictees!
In a world that can feel like it’s becoming more and more grey (and we don’t mean the 50 Shades kind) it is with great colourful pleasure we present Lakshmi Mohanbabu’s latest collection – the spirit lifting: Colours Of Unity.
The series of portraits highlights individualism in a world where socio-cultural influences are under a microscope.
"Colours worn for various occasions may be diametrically opposite from one group of people to another. Black is the colour of mourning for some, and white for others. White may symbolize purity and is worn by brides in some cultures, and yet is viewed as an absence of colour and therefore, worn by widows in other cultures which may favour fire colours such as red and yellow. Blue is the colour for baby boys and pink for baby girls in western cultures, but has no such significance in other cultures.
"In my series of portraits there is an emphasis on the individualistic. Age or race do not define the colour of skin or hair. Men and women have metallic lips, colourful skin and glasses. The glasses help depict the view of the external world, its reflection and influences on the mind."
~ Lakshmi Mohanbabu
