Not a religious painting, but an anecdote to Bollywood posters and Indian mothers. Chai is a unviersally loved beverage by every Indian, but when we go to India we're greeted by "Chai-walas" meaning the "Men who sell Chai". In most of a first-gen Indian kid household, the mom (or eldest woman) is the person who makes the Chai for the family. So, I've created a piece that puts the typical Indian woman in empowerment, showing her true colours- in a fun poster-esque way that details what a typical cup of Chai entails. She is a labour of love, and I can only imagine her hanging in a gorgeous cafê, restaurant or hotel.
