art: Rainbow Tree

Rainbow Tree, by Nayan Jyoti Nath: Watercolor on white paper, painted with cotton buds

Nayan, 22, is from Tezpur, Assam, and is currently pursuing his Master’s degree in Assamese literature. He was inspired to paint this by an image he had once seen in a Youtube video.

Nayan describes himself as ‘proudly gay’, and first shared this work with other members of the Facebook group of Xukia, a queer collective in Assam.
