Kunel hails from New Delhi, India. He works in advertising. And like every art director, he shares the burden of being a great photographer, illustrator and artist. He is a non-drinker, non smoker and hence very non-advertising, which is why at times he thinks he should just stick to becoming a film maker. That’s because he’s ok with coke overdose (He also owns a tshirt brand called Cocaine – for which he just directed his first film titled “This is cocaine”). While some may think he has lost it, he believes he hasn’t even found it yet.
Why are you into Advertising?
I have no idea. Maybe because it has a mix of everything in it, and I like that. Advertising uses you in every way it can, which is a good thing if you do have a lot to offer.
Did you attend school for fine art or design or Communications?
I attended a 3 year course in Advertising and Graphic design from WLCI. Ten years back it did seem like a better idea than going for an engineering school when you didn’t want to become an engineer.
