Siddesh Gautam is a New Delhi based multi-discipline, mixed-media artist, designer, treasure hunter, fallen angel, and soul searcher. Their work is a personification of their personal spiritual journey. They share their glasses with the world in the hope of inspiring a deeper connection between people through visual art. Their work is to encourage people to live deeply, love fearlessly, and to appreciate this heavenly place called Earth.

While minimalism and post-modernist thought are the main influence of their work, it is based on in-depth research on the subject. They aim to create much more than superficially beautiful objects. Their work is meant to challenge the audience preconceptions, expand the mind, honor the sacred, and evoke feelings of adventure, exploration, and deeper connection with the self.
