Well hold on….. What’s more amazing is that this kid is obsessed with Victoria Secret fashion shows (well we all grow ups are obsessed with it wink!) and we are thinking he is a little too young to be watching Victoria’s Secret fashions shows. But before you jump into any conclusion he watched the show as he gets the inspired by the creativity of the show!  When MorungExpress asked about his obsession over Victoria’s Secret, Kichu mentions that his first impression of the show was quite the contrary. When he was in class 3, he saw the show for the first time and found it ‘the dumbest fashion show ever’ but after watching reruns of the show, he realized that the show was really creative, and slowly developed his interest.

His work portfolios is full of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and guess what it all gets sold out in days!

Kichu’s images are mostly done with markers, color pencils, pastels and water colors. Some of his art works, especially his illustrations of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, are digitized and edited for a fresh look through Photoshop. Although he has not undergone any training or classes on art, Kichu says the internet has helped him learn more about illustrations. He is of the view that his generation is fortunate to be born in the age of internet and social media which should be taken advantage for one’s own positive growth.
