A burning desire to save birds

A birder and a phillumenist have teamed up for an art project that combines their interests and carries a conservation message.

Hobbyist birder Mitul Patel has a day job as the art director at an advertisement agency in Mumbai and matchbox collector Asif Kureshi is an independent graphic designer based in New Delhi. A while back, the two friends found themselves brainstorming ideas on bird-themed art and that’s how 12 endangered birds ended up on matchbox covers in a series called ‘The Burning Birds of India.’
