The Tree of Life

5th floor staircase

‘TREE OF LIFE’ at AIRTEL HEADQUARTERS, INDIA
Conceptualized and created a first of its kind six floor high 11000 sq ft 3-D to 2-D monumental staircase mural at the Airtel Centre, H.Q. campus of Bharti Airtel Ltd. Painting LIVE for three months in a continuous marathon performance art in front of 3500 employees, Manav created it in two phases. In the first phase, he gave the employees the experience of a lifetime to play with brush and colours and invited them to put strokes and idioms on his creation. In the second phase he weaved it as a site specific composition to create a unique composition – and an iconic work of art.
