Abhishek started his career as a programmer in 2001, however, a strong affinity towards art and design inspired him to switch fields. He did his Higher National Diploma (HND) in graphic design & advertisement from University of Huddersfield and later pursued bachelors in graphic design with honours from the Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London.
He has worked with a variety of traditional and contemporary media and across diverse range of streams, including branding, graphic design, print, coding, web design, user-experience (UX) driven interfaces for screen and touch based devices, smart television applications, photography and movie making.
Abhishek is also a creative consultant to various individuals, start-ups & corporates in India, UK and Canada. View some of his previous and present associations.
Where Knowledge Ends, Experience Begins.
Jain has mentored over hundred odd workshops across several disciplines, impacting and transforming perspectives of over thousands of students, idividuals and professionals, through empathetic, hands-on practical approach, which induces experiential realisation, opposed to mere theoretical delivery of lectures and presentations, which numb the recipients over the period.
He has worked as an associate lecturer for movie-making at Camberwell, tutored mature students, including the Irish author Oonagh Shanley Toffolo, and independently teaches subjects of art and design, coding and computers to aspiring students, individuals and professionals.
We Are Teaching Ancient Stuff. The Ancient Way. We Need To Change.
Abhishek is a proactive proponent of organic, disruptive & creative education. He staunchly believes that the conventional subjects, syllabi and techniques, are less pertinent in an age of disruptive technology as the pace of changes across arenas is colossal. A new technology intervenes and the world goes topsy-turvy overnight. At this rate, the the upcoming generation cannot afford to be simply relying on the conventional subjects and ways of working and even education itself needs an overhaul. Hence, in 2013, he stepped into education for good.
He has conceived the idea that education should be proffered for the soul & the mind, opposed to simply materialistic or tangible aspects of societal expectations; for the latter fails to nurture the mental health of people, thereby leading to a frustrated and shallow thought based society. With a fair understanding of art, design and technology, he has thence been working on several educational models, viz. Creative Education, Organic Education, Disruptive, Modular, Experiential, Collaborative, Autodidactic, Assistive, Anarchic and Sensuous Education. He uses an organic mix of these paradigms during his workshops, and the results been astounding.
Art is to life, what soul is to body.
Of late, Jain has been experimenting with several experiential art concepts. The latest exploration that adds to the list is sensous art.
