Pulp Society is very excited to present Aditya Raj’s first solo exhibition, with his watercolour paintings of Delhi from his series Shaher.

Raj draws on the idea of ‘Shehr Ashob’, referenced in Rakshanda Jalal’s foreword of Saif Mahmood’s book Beloved Delhi, literally meaning ‘misfortunes of the city’, and uses watercolour, ink and acrylic to mark the various sites, moments and times we all live through in the city of many cities that is Dilli.

First attempted during the lean of the lockdown for Inktober, his watercolour memoirs of Dilli became a sudden rage, scratching the nostalgic wounds and windings of many Dilliwallahs from across the world.
