Finally, we got it in possession on June 10th, 2013 and thereafter began a month-long episode of carefully planned renovation to revamp the space into a creative haven. The art-n-design studio of artists & designers Syed Ali Arif and Inderjit Nagi is a gateway to all things quirky, kitsch and colourful, a true extension of their personalities and their work. Here are some snapshots for your viewing pleasure only...
