Why I Paint
I am merely replicating as of now and would not consider myself to be a true artist. I work with poster paints and water and have also explored the pen medium. Art continues to intrigue me and over the years, I have seen it connect with me at various levels.
Even if I am not painting or sketching something, I like to read about artists and how they contributed to a better world. I like to read about the depth in their lives, how they battled odds in a commerce-dominated world and somehow got themselves immortalised by staying dedicated to their craft.
I paint only in my free time and work full time to make two ends meet but my passion for art is definitely high and I will continue to explore it in different ways. Till now, mostly portraits have excited me but I have recently also explored other forms. I am happy to see my works featured on this esteemed platform.
