I have always painted as far as I remember. Right from my school days, I had an inclination towards art. I used to represent my school in inter-school competitions. I then went on to submit my artworks for state-level competitions. Then there was a hiatus in my art journey as I needed more time to focus on academics. I seriously pursued art when I joined NIFT and had more time for creative pursuits but was not completely focused on it. Recently, I have realized that art is my true calling and this is what I enjoy doing the most.
Well, it’s not exactly a switch for me. Designing is creative and so is art. For me, designing has always been a way to express myself but there are commercial limitations when you work for someone. Art, on the other hand, is free and without boundaries. I can do what I like when I am painting, which may not be the case when I am designing. Art gives me a chance to experiment more with mediums, colors, and moods.
Art is usually about self-expression because the artist feels strongly enough about what they are doing to try and put it into a form that they, and others, can come to terms with. It depends on how an artist’s works connect to the viewers.
One of the functions of the artist is to make a statement of some kind. Somehow the artist tries to communicate an idea, an emotion, or a purpose in their work. I do not subscribe to complicated concepts, my idea of art is simply beautiful. I like to leave it free, it's about what touches my heart. The common element that runs through all my works is beauty that appeals to everyone and puts a smile on the viewer's face.
I love doing mainly abstracts and mixed media artworks. My works create a visual rhapsody of color and strokes that come to life on canvas. My palate includes a variety of reds, blues, and greens that enthrall the viewer and are a visual treat to the eyes. The uplifting patterns enhance the artwork creating a multidimensional effect.
During the past few years, I have participated in many art shows, mostly in and around Delhi, and has won great appreciation from art lovers and critics alike. I have an art studio by the name of Shruti Arts. I have taken part in several national and international exhibitions, contributed my artworks for noble causes, judged art competitions, participated in various art workshops collaborated with interior designers, and have done two solo art shows. And in the coming times, I will achieve more and inspire people through my artworks.
