The Wild Garden Project
Created initially for the Wild Garden Café, Amethyst in the heart of Chennai, designer/illustrator Jisha Unnikrishnan's charcoal and pen & ink botanical drawings were composed into a non-repeating 120 ft panorama without any repeating sections. The inspiration for the panorama came from French painter Henri Rousseau's dream-like pictures and Amethyst’s own tropical garden.
The large-scale artworks were hand-coloured using a variety of media from water colour to pencils, with the addition of birds, animals and more plants to this fantasy garden. These are now available as wallpaper, art prints, notebooks, greeting cards, and home textiles.
