Why did you pick this picture?
This picture has one of my favorite Indian Tribal art forms, Warli. It combines the basic elements from it like the worshipping of Sun, the flowers and crops and the happy farmers celebrating a good yield. It depicts the simple joys of life.
Where did the idea for this art come from?
I have seen these patterns on walls of thatched roof huts in the villages, more recently as an indulgent art form in the cities and on designer fabrics. It’s a beautiful art form and has always caught my eye because it’s simple yet always tells a story.
What does this art mean to you?
It is pure happiness. It’s an opportunity to not only create something but promote something good using this and other platforms.
What can you tell us about yourself?
I will say that am still learning to draw since am only a part time artist and a full time Consultant. I used to draw when I was a child but then I got busy with studies and life and stopped drawing completely. I started drawing again a year and half back and I can’t seem to understand why I left it in the first place.
What more can you tell us about your art?
I am an avid traveler and my art is in a lot of ways inspired by my travels. I like noticing patterns, colours and designs used in traditional architecture. Majority of my art is hand drawn and I prefer it that. My designs are greatly influenced by henna and Zen art designs with lot of floral patterns. I do want to use different mediums like watercolor, acrylics to grow more as an artist.
