Artists are courageous people, who strive through all the struggles of the journey, to just follow their hearts. Here is another story of such an artist, Urvashi.

A self-taught artist, Urvashi belongs from Gwalior. A graduate in tourism management, she followed her heart to chose an unconventional career path. Her “interest in Indian mythology and history” has a huge influence on her art.

She is an adventurer by heart, a quality that is also reflected in her love for art. Despite struggles, she went the extra mile to achieve her dreams.

Inspired by Indian culture, architecture and mythology, she is still evolving her style, nature and technique of painting. Encouraging others to focus on passion while practicing rigorously to perfect your craft, she states that it is the only way to improve your chances of success.

Sculptor

It’s saddening to be living in the days when no matter how brightly the sun shines the world appears to be covered in soot of dismay. The unexpected darts of these dark times are everyday taking away lives, unbiasedly. On July 18, an artist fighting with COVID-19 took his last breath surrendering himself to the ultimate cessation.

A young sculptor, hailing from Telangana, Shivarama Chary sadly is no more amongst us. In tribute to the artist and in admiration of his work a 40-minute documentary, produced by Vaayudhwani Productions, takes us through his journey so far. Dr. Vajranabh Natraaj Maharshi is the creator of this documentary film. He has conceptualised and directed it along with creating its cinematography.

An artist is immortalized by his work. He might not walk with us on this earth but the work of an artist keeps him alive in the memory. The admiration of the work is greater than the admiration of the artist himself. The film gives us a glimpse of how the life of a sculptor is. It gives us a peek into the past of Shivarama Chary that made him stand where he stood. The exciting element of the film is that Shivarama himself has acted his role, so portrayal has only become more realistic for us.

An artist’s inspiration comes from his own life. Admirers of artistic subjects would find the film intriguing in seeing the process of drawing an inspiration into an art piece. Conjecturing the analogy of inspiration and art piece is what forms the relevance of the art piece and lets us connect ourselves to it.

Watch out for the splendid life of an artist who sculpted with modesty his lessons on his sculptures portrayed impactfully in the film.

Portrait Painting

Painting is an art where colours are the words and the story which otherwise would be told in hundreds of pages is portrayed beautifully all at once. The depicted story can cover all the themes a written piece, musical tune or dance performance can portray. Delicate artform as it is, it’s an imprint of the artists imagination and an insight into the psyche of an artist. Paintings allude to mythological stories or characters, historical events or figures, conventionalities, contemporary events, spiritual messages and reflect the mirror image of the society and its beliefs.

Let’s meet some of the insightful artists.

Kannan Chithralaya is skilled in various forms of paintings including water colour, acrylic, oil and soft pastel paintings, pencil, colour pencil, pen and charcoal sketching. He is majorly known for his delightful and distinctive realistic water colour portraits. He is a self-taught artist, painting since his teenage days and his mettle in the art is worth appreciation.

Nishikant Palande paintings speak for themselves; the figures are realistic and so is the portrayal. He even runs online classes and workshops of painting to happily share his promising skills with the young learners. The ambitious artist is also the founder of a graphic design studio named Thoughtline Design Studio.

Rajkumar Sthabathy in his paintings chooses the portrayal of Indian society involved in their humdrum routine. His popular collections depict rickshaw drivers, Kumbh mela, street workers, ‘veyil’ (summer) and various emperors among other beautiful portraits. His paintings are intense and eloquent reflection of real surroundings.

Graphic Narrative by Triparna Maiti & Shreya Rawat

Illustrations have always been a strong medium to bring forth the voiceless and the forgotten. Today, we bring you some amazing graphic illustrations.

Graphic illustrations

Illustrations have always been a strong medium to bring forth the voiceless and the forgotten. Amid the changing circumstances and enforcements during COVID-19, the following graphic illustrations highlight the plight of those daily wage workers and migrants who are left helpless; with no home and bread to break.

Triparna Maiti is an Illustrator and Animation Filmmaker who makes graphic illustrations and storyboards using her personal experiences. Through her illustrations she expresses her grief and heart-felt concern for those who have no place to go during this tragic crisis. She says, “The faint footsteps of the migrant workers ring louder in my ears than the clanking of utensils witnessed in the whole country.” She raises a thought-provoking question and says “Where is home?”.

Shreya Rawatis a trained filmmaker, with specialization in Producing for Films and Television at Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute, Kolkata. She co-created the “Where is home?” illustration with Triparna Maity. She believes that this illustration was a way to overcome the pangs of guilt she felt for being privileged and not being able to do anything. She quotes,” This was our way of contributing in the smallest way possible to remember the sufferings of migrant laborers and Kashmiris in different lockdowns and to take note of our own privileges at this point.”

The credits for poetry excerpts go to Srividya Srinivasan,who is an entrepreneur in media and communication. She is a published author and poet and voices her concern for the suffering migrants as well as the plight of Kashmiris during the lockdowns imposed in Kashmir. Her words give us all a lot to ponder and contemplate upon.
