Fashion account @dietsabya asked people to weigh in. Some called it art, some called it horror and many commented under the pics with threats of unfollowing the brand. But Gupta is not ruffled because he feels that the signs of surrealism are in his campaigns since beginning. His idea has always been to question of what we conventionally call or think is pretty. The film sees the models ear oversized ceramic eyes made by artist Vikramditya Sharma with faces painted red or green exploring Garg’s theme of “supernatural vs natural”.
