Introducing the Prashart Blog
This blog featuring the art of Prashant Miranda is being started by one of his friends in Canada while "Prash" as he signs his paintings is touring around India and periodically mailing us pages of his sketchbook and occasional notes and thoughts about his experiences in India. I met Prashant through his work for World Literacy of Canada where he sometimes volunteers his considerable talent as an artist to create posters for our events. He is now spending some of his time in India working with literacy programs, doing murals, street art and helping craft projects. I snapped this wonderful picture of Prashant at an author reading. Our sales were lagging at the World Literacy table, he was press-ganged into making a sales pitch and desperate for a way to display silk scarves, he decided to model one as a turban.
