N. S. Harsha is known for his unique use of color, which is filled with a sense of clarity and transparency. The original woodcut prints are a brilliant fusion of Mr. Harsha's original style and the distinct feel of woodcut prints that is born from traditional Japanese handcrafted paper and watercolors. We are pleased to introduce the collaborative works of Mr. Harsha, who reflects on traditional Indian culture to establish his own unique form of artistic expression, and the Adachi Institute, which strives to keep alive the traditional woodcut printing techniques of Japan.

As the title suggests, this piece called “The Raid” features an elephant knocking down orderly rows of chairs as he stomps forward. The elephant is believed to be an avatar of god in Mr. Harsha's home country of India. While lively and comical, the piece seems to depict the breakdown of order and the absurdity in the real world. The light and airy colors and the soft texture that are characteristic of woodcut prints bring out the pop feel and charm of the work.
