Manav has a passion and love for animals. Though he is currently studying industrial design he sees a future that intersects with helping animals.
The original artwork for this piece was made using acrylic paints and it was a comment on the gluttony of humans. “Manav” actually means “human” in Hindi, his native language.
Did you know that pigs are intelligent, social, playful, and protective animals who bond with each other and lead social lives as complex as primates? “I got my inspiration for this piece when I was on a photo walk in the slums and I saw a pig looking at me with such innocence I could see the hunger in it’s eyes. This piece was painted using acrylic paints and it was a comment on the gluttony of humans, and how in the name of survival we kill innocent animals ruthlessly. ” – Manav Singla
