What A Wonderful Bunch

by: Manjul Rathee, Manchester, England

I used to think anyone doing anything weird was WEIRD. Now I know that it is the people that call others weird that are weird.

quote by: Paul McCartney, (b. June 18, 1942) Musician

Artist Statement

As the world shrinks, integration among various cultures and people is inevitable. We must rid ourselves of prejudices and eradicate clichés. My concept is based on the very note of "simplicity." The illustration uses a form of everyday consumption - a bunch of grapes, that just Is, and draws out the relativity of how humans - of different sexes, ages, caste, creed, color, abilities, and so called socioeconomic status - are all part of the same species, sharing a common phenomenon of life. Being "mixed race" reinforces my belief in this simple reminder that together we all do, indeed, make a wonderful bunch.
