The Age Of Heroic Art – Meet Bravin Xavier Fernandes



Dawning on us is the age of challenging masterpieces, revolutionary depictions and soulful artistries reflecting the realities of life. While some artists are masters in portraying life as ‘all things beautiful’, those who indulge themselves in the sing-song delicacies of nature, there are some who charm the world with their mystical darker side, in the sense that how beautifully are they always able to give a ruthless, strong structure to everything they curate. Bravin Xavier Fernandes is among the latter lot, or maybe, beyond them. His artwork questions the very  existence of  goodness and power.

The hardcore groundbreaking strokes and an eye for murky elements makes him stand out from the rest. All it takes is a mere look at his art to realize how magnificently important details are to him. A being from a parallel universe or a brute from a whole different land – Bravin creates it all.10343657_4320030775204_6358291862585936799_n

His artwork majorly revolves around heroic symbolisms and characters burning with inspiration. It is duly undeniable how Bravin’s art screams fantasy, screams heroism. Below is a candid interview with him about all things art:

  1. What was that one thing that inspired you to take up this artwork? 

As a kid, I was very fascinated by cartoons, such as batman and Superman the animated series, swat Kat’s, G.I. Joes and many more. Those were my core inspirations to take up doodling and sketching as a hobby which later I’d like to turn into my work.

  1. The best that you have experienced in this field? 

The best experience for me would be being appreciated for what I do. There’s nothing greater than that.IMG-20160526-WA0007

  1. What do you think of digital art? Have you done any?

Digital art is a very underestimated field. There are many who I know who say digital is much easier than traditional art. Yes, it does give you many resources but making use of them is quite a handful. As for me, I have done a bit of digital art. Some of the art I’ve submitted on this page is digital and done on Photoshop. It’s an area with a lot of potentials and a must try for anyone with a keen interest in art.

  1. Brief us a little about your past accomplishments.

I have taken part in many competitions in school but I haven’t been successful in all. However, recently I received a request from a comic book fan from Australia. He got my Slade vs. Wade Wilson piece tattooed on his arm. That’s quite an accomplishment for me. As for being featured, News aur Chai will be my first.IMG-20160526-WA0009

  1. Any artist that you look up to? What do you love about him/her?

Artists like Jim Lee, Jack Kirby and John Buscema are big inspirations for me as comic books are my bible for artwork. All of them have a different style and an attitude in the way they draw. The portrayal of emotions is spot on.

  1. What are your future plans relating to this field? 

I am pursuing BFA (Bachelor’s in Fine Arts) in game design and animation from an institute in Hyderabad which is a 4-year course. I aspire to be a concept artist after am done with my graduation.

  1. Any troubled experience that you learned from? 

There were certain childhood years of mine in which drawing was all I had and all I could turn to. It has always been like an invisible friend of mine, it’s a solace. Something I can never tire of.IMG-20160526-WA0011

  1. Who/what is your all-time favorite character/idea to sketch? 

Kratos the God of war was one of the characters I used to draw about every second day since I played the PlayStation 2 game God of war. All I could think of doing is keep drawing the same thing till I make a better rendition of it. The idea of a fight sequence was one of my favorite things to sketch.

  1. What, in your view, is a better way for an artist to succeed – being commercial or being artful? 

Being commercial is never a wise decision. Being artful is always something that makes you content at heart. It will give you success and satisfaction at the same time. Personally, I draw for the joy of it. I haven’t taken commissions for any of my art.

  1. Is there any message that you would like to deliver to our budding artists?

Be simple, be yourself and don’t try being someone else. Practice is the key. Learning can never stop in this field.IMG-20160526-WA0023

Hence, plummeting deep into a pool of ferociously beautiful renditions, Bravin, certainly, is not far from being the master of it all.

A little suburban woman aspiring to provide the world with strong journalistic and anthropological content. Forever looking for that tenuous grind and delving deeper into the beautiful complexities of life, I strive. I go on. And on.

Ram Mandir Opening For “Darshan” In 2023



Ram Mandir Opening 2023 | News Aur Chai

The Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is expected to allow visitors by December 2023, with the completion of construction only in 2025.

Sources in the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra have revealed that the colossal project of building the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, will be opening for devotees towards the end of 2023. In contrast, the project’s entire construction completion is expected towards the end of 2025. The sanctum sanctorum (Garbha Griha), along with the mandir’s first floor, will be ready by December 2023. Devotees will be allowed to visit the long-awaited mandir soon after the construction is completed.

An ANI report said, “The grand Ram Mandir being constructed in Ayodhya will be opened for devotees from December 2023. Sources told ANI that Garbhagriha, all five mandaps and the first floor will be ready by December 2023 and the mandir will be opened for devotees”.

The sanctum sanctorum will be as high as 161 feet and built using Rajasthani marble and stones. Engineers and architects are taking all measures to ensure the longevity of this enormous project. The second stage of construction is expected to begin in December this year. Currently, the structure is at a standstill as a result of monsoons. Another reason for the delay is the coronavirus pandemic that depleted the force with which the mandir’s construction was expected to go on.

The announcement of the mandir being opened to visitors in 2023 has brought up questions about the political agenda. It is believed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) aims to use the mandir to catapult themselves into a position of advantage during the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Opening the mandir to devotees in December 2023 will give the BJP an easy 6-month gap to the general elections in 2024.

The opening of the long-awaited Ram Mandir in Ayodhya could be the factor that diverts the public, at least the Hindu’s in favour of BJP. Thus, securing them a vote bank based on religious sentiments upheld by the party in their previous tenure as the ruling party.

The Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir will be 360 feet long, 235 feet wide, and 20 feet high mandir will be completely ready by the end of 2025. The project will include amenities and structures like museums, archives, research centre, Sant Niwas, gau and Yagya shala, Etc. The main attraction is the Ram Mandir.

Matrix Resurrections 2021 | News Aur Chai

The expectation of the unexpected fourth instalment of The Matrix Resurrections in the sci-fi establishment has started with another banner prodding the arrival of its first trailer.

The film Matrix 4 comes out 18-years after The Matrix Revolutions. It is planning to be the last film in a trilogy reporting the transformation of Computer programmer Thomas Anderson into cybercriminal Neo. As he finds the conventional world, he occupies a recreated reality.

Loosening up the expectation, with a special promotional. It highlights red and blue pills sit next to each other underneath the clear message: ‘The Choice is yours.’ Fans of the famous establishment will perceive the pills as a definitive choice given to Neo, played by Keanu Reeves, as he picks between life in the conflict assaulted real world or the ‘beautiful prison’ of a substitute reality. Penetrating static fills in as the scenery, as small strings of Matrix code has seen falling inside the pills before the whole scene liquefies.

Fans can proceed with their adventure on, an intelligent pick your-own-experience style site. Given a similar decision there, red brings you down a rabbit hole where you’re told: ‘This is the moment for you to show us what’s real.’ Then scenes from the film teaser, showing the slight hindrance between the natural world and the fake world known as The Matrix. One of the Best Scenes is Reeves’ Neo gulping a blue pill while a lot more seasoned, a balder man shows up in his appearance.

The scenes reviewed rely upon which pill selection and each emphasis on the decision made. The Red Pill requests that the watcher go further into the reality behind the Matrix. While the Blue Pill cautions them to avoid it again so as not to agitate the norm and welcome undesirable risk.

Still, the viewer’s decision makes, in any case, every secret seems to end with a brief look at Keanu Reeves as Neo, with different eyes. He either collaborates with characters who could be his partners in the film or plans to fight against its expected scalawags, be they Agents, pernicious projects, or even people.

The person who clicks on the blue pill will hear Harris’s voiceover saying: “You’ve lost your capacity to discern reality from fiction.” Before encouraging the viewer to embrace that their situation is genuine. At the current time, streaks on the screen, and Harris peruses it, saying, “anything else is your mind playing tricks on you.” By contrast, ones’ who click on the red pill hear Abdul-Mateen’s voice revealing to them that while they trust it’s the current time — once more. With Abdul-Mateen perusing the time out loud — “that couldn’t be further from the truth.” Regardless, a progression of quick-cut shots from “Revivals” streaks on the screen during the two situations. As each time a viewer taps on a pill, the recording changes.

‘This could be this is the first day of the rest of your life, but if you want it, you gotta fight for it.’ The portrayal wraps while showing star Keanu Reeves prepared to battle. Then, at that point, finishing on a vile note, they show somebody contacting the PC port at the rear of their head and inquire: ‘We don’t want anyone to get hurt, do we?’

From visionary movie producer Lana Wachowski. The new film reunites unique stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss as Neo and Trinity, the infamous roles they made well known.’ The first Matrix film in 1999 met with much essential acclaim upon its introduction. The element is following up by two other movies, which were both delivered in 2003. Warner Bros. uncovered the title for the fourth Matrix film during its CinemaCon board.
