I think any work that touches us on an emotional level – brings us joy or anger, tears or laughter – is art.
Art is something that is created that entertains, inspires and educates. In that way, I think any work that touches us on an emotional level – brings us joy or anger, tears or laughter – is art. Different people express art in various ways. For example, someone who writes a love letter because they are unable to express their feelings through touch or emotion. Is this art? Or a musical piece that creates a flutter inside. Or even an exquisitely woven fabric. All these things are art to me.
Art does not have to be beautiful or make you feel good to be defined as art; it is an expression of emotion. We are all artists because we are all able to feel and create. All of life is art to me.
When I think about art, its creator and the meaning of the creation I think the content is more important than the context. I do not necessarily need to understand when and why it was created to form my opinion on whether I enjoy it. I like to find my own meaning.
Born in a Kolkata based family, oriented toward fine arts, music, dance; creativity was an integral part of my childhood. I was exposed to various forms of art like Kathak (dance), Hindustani Classical Music and Fine arts through my growing-up years and pursued them till high school.
I graduated in Architecture and have pursued a career as an Architect and Interior Designer since 2000, experimenting with design, forms, textures and colours in every project and feeling satisfied when it comes up as a work of Art.
I decided to revive my passion for painting as something that made me happy. Little did I know that I would immerse myself so deeply into it that it would become my therapy, my meditation, my nirvana.
I am completely with myself when I paint. My style, you can say is semi-abstract …. I am still evolving!
Presently settled in Bangalore, India I am pursuing a career in Arts and Architecture/ Interiors.
