About Indian ArtPoetry amongst the woods, with all its unparalleled, salient features is an outcome of the quest and creative restlessness of the Pune based innovative artist couple - Charuhas Pandit and his wife, Bhagyashree who have founded the Wood Craft company "Srujan Art". Their quest for an aesthetic, soft yet expressive medium led them to explore these hitherto unexplored possibilities of expression. A perfect medium to express and inherit the legacy of the choicest themes from the vast ocean of centuries old Indian art.
Wood Craft is an ingenious art form which combines the intricacy of wood carving with the delightful creative strains of a work of art. This involves using wood pieces in their natural colours and textures, delicately cutting and creating the best composition and presenting it in the required theme. The result is a masterpiece that is interesting too, owing to its '3D within 2D' illusory effect.
