Sanjyt Syngh completed his undergraduate studies at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and spent a decade there working with some incredible designers and architects before travelling to London for his post-graduate studies. Sanjyt Syngh Design Consultancy was created after he returned home. He plays a variety of roles as the Creative Director of his organisation. He creates work that may be seen all around the world while in New Delhi.
The sculptures in the ‘You Are The King’ series serve as a reminder of the craziness and weirdness that some of us may harbour in our heads. We may be hesitant to bring it up in conversation, but when confronted with these sculptures, we can easily empathise with them. If the goal of art is to make you think, these pieces succeed admirably.
Summing up the concempt behind the design, Sanjyt Syngh says, “We all have two sides. One that you see in the public, and one that you see in the toilet mirror. Inspired by self-love, I consider my toilet mirror self as my king. My conversations with him are inspiring. He pushes me to trust my weirdness and grow my wings. As per him, normalcy is a barbed wire fence to creativity. He convinces me to have a fxxking opinion and continue being the best version of myself.” A little wildness infuse a room with edgy originality. The same can be said for these statues. You might find your alter ego in these sculptures, just like the designer did. You can also completely admire these kings. They come in ultramarine blue, pure green, and black and are made of fibre and stainless steel. They are the most effective discussion starters available.
