Upside down portrait from Atypical Advantage- created by Ajay Jayprakash:
Ajay’s life turned upside down after a fatal Bike accident & post the trauma he channelized his energy into Art. He has perfected the skill of upside-down Painting which tricks the brain into painting what is exactly in front of the eyes instead of leveraging one own imagination of what a part must look like.
