Nakha Chitra

Gold Fish by Suhas Tavkar

Via a co-worker, this elegant and delicate artwork created with the artist's fingernails: nakha chitra. From Mumbai, India, Suhas Tavkar has been performing this rare art form for over 50 years and his work will be on display at the New York Public Library (the Donnell Center on 53rd) from June 9th. He'll be doing a live demonstration of fingernail embossing there next Saturday the 7th at 1pm.
