BEING AN ARTIST.
‘Art is not a handicraft, it is the transmission of a feeling.the Artist has experienced.’
Visiting ‘The Venice of me East‘ was a relevance for me as I was connected to it from the soul. UDAIPUR~ the city of lakes had me enthralled from the very moment I stepped the foot on its pious land in June 2012. The enchanting lakes, palaces & lively culture inspired me and keep me fascinated by its sights and sounds. The lush green hills of Aravalis around the azure water lakes make this land an Artist’s dream.
The unnatural and spiritual connection I felt with the land, specially The Royal City Palace made me feel that I had previous birth attachment to the land. And soon I fell in love with the land of valor and gallantry.
That short fascinating trip into Udaipur helped me to get in touch with the true Artist in me & I was drawn to expressing my visit onto canvas. Through Instagram, I started sharing my creations and Udaipur came into my life once again.
With my number of followers increasing I started translating impressions of the photographers of Udaipur onto my canvas. The photographers were amazed at my likeness. Today I’ve a collection of about 200+ paintings of Udaipur. From the beautiful Fatehsagar and Pichola Lake, the mesmerizing Gangaur, Ambrai and Lal Ghat, The astonishing Lake View Palace, there maybe hardly any spot of Udaipur that has not been made by me on my canvas. This year, when Fatehsagar overflowed, it was a moment of great happiness for Udaipurites and though sitting miles away from it, I expressed my happiness by making it. I thank to Almighty for having given me this gesture and am grateful that I’ve got a platform to showcase my talent.
Udaipur ~ The land which inspires Poets, Artists and Writers with the flavour of its heroic past, fairy tale palaces, gardens, lakes is a city which holds me in its embrace – a hug which I will never grow tired of and which holds me spellbound. If I take birth the next time on Earth, I wish to be born in the dream city – Udaipur.
