Every now and then I come across an artist that combines so many things I’m thinking about into beautiful visual creations, that it feels like they’re in my head a little bit - but taking ideas I’ve thought about to create things I could never think of.

Today I came across Indian artist Nandan Ghiya. His intricately framed and quirky pixelated images combine ideas of nostalgia, loss, reverence, craft and history in a way that is arresting, emotional and humorous.

I mean, just look at the framing skills - I’m floored. Beautiful. It’s a perfect intersection of craftsmanship and contemporary dialogue. This is why I think framing can be so interesting.

Within the ‘deFacebook Project’, the artist has included a couple of different individual collections such as ‘The Family Tree 2.0' and 'Single & Available’. Through these artworks, he has gone on to develop his unique point of view on contemporary societies and human relationships thereby making his work an interesting interface between the past and the present where faces, genres and pixels mix and match in a series of vintage print collages. His exhibits represent a peculiar recycling of different times where our everyday habits become part of our past and our past is suddenly attached to modern society.
