Art - a pure, divine, eternal and creative form of the skill of inner heart and soul.
As life, Art is also a journey. Unlike life, it never dies, but only continues to exist with the creator's soul living in it. But only when art is taken to the heart, a real journey starts and a true joy would be experienced along the way.
My journey of Art began as a hobby in my childhood, later transformed into a passion. But, it is only recently I have started to experience it solely from my heart. Now, my (HE)ART is reborn.
I am a self-taught Art hobbyist. I've enjoyed Art since my childhood. As life added work and more responsibilities, Art took a side part in my life. Without any regrets on the past, I have been trying to get back to it by setting some time aside for it. After all, life is so short and at the end if we look back, the only things that make us feel satisfied are the things that we did by putting our hearts into it.
My Art works- I have done numerous Art works in various media; pencil, ballpoint pen, ink, sketch pens, watercolor, and oil colors. I do drawing/painting of portraits, landscapes, objects, illustrations and sculpture with soaps & clay. My style in Art is realism and I am not satisfied until my work looks beautiful to me. Beauty, richness and skill are the main aspects that I always look for in an Art.
Practice makes perfect. I am a strong believer in practice. I follow Bapu's (a well known Telugu Artist who is considered a perfectionist in Art) advice to Artists- try to draw everything you see around you.
Inspiration- I haven't had any formal training in Art other than that I got inspired by my Dad, whose Art skills I believe, I inherited genetically. My Dad used to draw in his leisure time. I only remember just one instance of my Dad doing a drawing that I observed very closely when I was 4 years old.
There have been many inspiring people, places, things and events in my life; family members, friends, other artists, nature and some few opportunities.
Everyday in one's life starts as a blank canvas; any little inspiration stays as a reference and portrays the day into a beautiful memory in life. A life mixed with inspiration, memories and satisfaction is like an endless Art giving life to the life.
In one word art means, Soul to me.
