Kinky Kashayam

Kinky Kashayam is an NYC and Toronto-based multi-disciplinary design studio that aims to decolonise South Indian imagination and reconstruct an endemic identity. In their unique melange of ethnicity and pop medley, sci-fi futurist vignettes blend with colonial sepia memories and create an avant-garde pastiche. Their portfolio offers a fusion that romanticises the mundane and glorifies moments of a cultural past. Kinky's experimental playground is infused with elements of unrealism and surrealism eventually conceiving a novel genre they call 'Dravidian futurism'. Kinky Kashayam has been successfully able to re-engineer a perception of cultural pride and establish a sense of self-ownership thus fracturing the shackles of a post-colonial shame.
