"It is pain that creates an artist. But also he who gets the blessing of art can never remain sad. Because art is the medium through which we can express our emotions."
- Isha Trivedi
Defining Luck | Designing Life | Creating Beauty
I’m a Mumbai (India) based self-taught artist and painting comes naturally to me. If at all I had to name my art teachers, I would say google.com and youtube.com. In my free time I keep surfing Internet and reading art books. Painting/sketching is much about observation and photography is all about perception. Similarity between both is that good painting or a good photograph mostly depends on how well the lights and shadows are used; and also they both “create beauty”.
I have done my schooling from Ahmedabad and graduation from Bangalore. And like any other student I too wanted to do MBA, work in some company to gain experience and then start a business of my own. So, after my graduation I worked with K Sera Sera Productions as a Portal Department Head for an year. But it was during that time I realized I might not be made for the corporate world. I quit my job and started my career as an artist and a photographer.
As for poetry, I’m not a poet. I just wrote down a few poems some years back, which I would call a rhythmic flow of emotions. I posted those poems on Facebook and the editor of “Muskurahatein Abhi Baki Hain” offered me to be a part of that book. It was an offer that couldn’t be denied.
In any form, art always adds life to my existence.
