Tales Of Worlds That She Makes Glow: Sumouli Dutta

Sumouli Dutta, a tremendously talented illustrator, with an even more impressive resume, talks about her journey so far.

Published

Sumouli Dutta

With bright hues on every piece, her illustrative work has its own way of being able to stand out. There is a definitive sense of a celebratory spirit in the manner she uses colours. And, through it all, their use seems deliberate and decided, as if she had spent a considerable amount of time on choosing which empty space merges with which colour. To be frank, she probably has. You see, Sumouli Dutta is not an individual that goes about things in a haphazard way. There is, in the steps she takes, a deliberate decision and a measured calm, an approach that is as evident in her art as it is in her life.

Dutta does not shy away from admitting that her favourite class in school was ‘Art and Craft’. She loved drawing so much, in fact, that she would often find herself creating illustrations during other classes as well. Well, Math class, to be specific. Could you really blame her, though? Seeing her own blossoming interest and the joy she felt while drawing, she decided, at a pretty young age, that art was something that she wanted to pursue seriously. Even so, after she finished with her graduation, she veered off course a few times, getting engaged in other fields. However, in the end, this was the only thing she could come back to.

The manner in which it all started is, perhaps, a little serendipitous. Dutta had actually created her Instagram page, ‘Woodledoodledesigns’, way back in December of 2015. Well, created and, then, deleted. You see, initially, she was a little confused with Instagram’s interface. A little overwhelmed, she retreated from her earlier resolve to showcase her work online. It was only on a colleague’s insistence that she decided to start that account up again. It started slow, with her uploading the doodles that she would do during her break from work. Soon enough, however, she was exposed to the wide world of illustrators that existed online. There was so much for her to see and learn.

Dutta, however, was not rushed about the whole experience. No. In point of fact, she was measured in her steps. She began with traditional artwork before shifting to digital. Recalling how she would use her iPhone and fingers to paint, Dutta fondly remembers that she even created her 2018 calendar design on her phone. By then, she had started getting enough projects to feel reassured in her decision to pursue this. The real struggle, as she puts it, in all of this, was in finding her own personal style. For some time, she floundered on this very idea. What really was her own trademark style? What Dutta was, somewhat, ignorant to, however, was her own love for creating textures through the play of light and shadow in her artwork. The idea of giving an aesthetic glow to her artwork truly fascinated her. When she did, finally, recognize this, she worked harder to develop this even further. Dutta, now, was truly a consummate artist.

Now, Dutta has an impressive resume, including brand collaborations with Google and Netflix, amongst others. However, it didn’t start that way. She started with customized projects such as wedding invitations. Her first big break in this field came when she worked with Mayurpankhi, a publishing house from Bangladesh, and illustrated a children’s book. This was, in fact, a dream come true. Ever since she had started her own page, Dutta had always wanted to be a children’s book illustrator. She is, now, on her 23rd book.

While her accomplishments may sound glorious now, and deservedly so, Dutta admits to having a rough time, on a personal front, when she first started in 2015. Grappling with anxiety and depression, she, at the time, found herself under scrutiny by many that she knew. It got to a point where she was on the verge of losing her own individual identity. Art helped her then. Somehow finding the strength to channel her own energy into creating new pieces of artwork, Dutta found a receptive audience to her work online, a collective that gave her the support and love that she needed at the time.

I only used to draw back then to keep myself sane. And the amount of support and love I received from the people on Instagram was incredible. I am forever grateful.

Sumouli Dutta

As she goes deeper into explaining the motivations behind her work, there is a marked difference in what the initial motivation was and the space she is in now. When she first started, the idea was to learn and produce work that was commendable enough for her to be listed amongst some of the other talented and celebrated creators in the country. The primary drive was to absorb, learn and get better. Now, Dutta looks towards a new front, with her sights set primarily on pushing herself to be more through her art. It is the idea of pushing her own artistic boundaries and contributing to the craft that drives her currently.

As such, there is a sense of peace that she derives from creating her own artistic pieces. In a manner of speaking, the process of creating something from scratch is one that she finds to be deeply spiritual and a means to channel her own emotions. Indeed, it is a process that she imbues with influences from her own life and experiences.

I simply draw inspiration from what is going on in my life or how I am feeling.

Sumouli Dutta

Dutta has worked incredibly hard to be at where she is at. In fact, she believes that talent is not something that is innate or latent, but rather something that is cultivated through persistent effort and sheer hard work. She realises this in her own efforts, where she sees a distinct improvement from some of her earlier work.

Before and Now

The only thing that she stresses on, however, is the idea of being sure about what you are passionate about. In a sense, Dutta speaks about how something that you are passionate about will always evoke satisfaction and love from you when you engage with it, regardless of the situation. The idea of getting tired from something that you are passionate about is what she warns against. And knowing the measured manner in which she takes her steps, you can be sure that Sumouli Dutta will never get tired of creating worlds that glow.

‘Dee for Drawing’: Dejeshwini’s Digital Art and Illustrations

Digital artist-illustrator, Dejeshwini shares with us tid-bits of her life, professional career and its milestones.

Published

on

Dejeshwini

Even before she had known what art was, Dejeshwini was branded an artist. It was by her family, who had seen enough of her drawing circles and strokes as a small child. Later, in school, she would always get recognised as that kid who draws really well. Perhaps, it was in these little things that her ambition to enter the field of art was formed. And now, working as a professional artist-illustrator, Dejeshwini has turned that goal into a fulfilling success. 

Her story!

However, she took her first course to learn concepts of art, online, when she was way into her college. Since then, the internet and Youtube became her lessons, and she admits to learning a lot through them. After completing her graduation, she took a plunge into freelancing, with only one goal in mind– she wanted to be an ‘illustrator’. 

Dejeshwini’s dream started to come true when she bagged her first project to illustrate a children’s book. “I was over the moon, at that time I realized, someone is out there to believe in your skill and pay you even if you are a newbie and reasonably talented, all you have to do is just to try!” she exclaims cheerfully. This first professional project held more importance than one realizes. Since art and skill cannot be validated with a certificate, as she goes on to say, it is only in the efforts that one puts behind their passion that amplifies their profile. And Dejeshwini’s first gig had been proof of her art and skills coming real, on a more substantial, professional front.

Another reason that echoes behind her hard work is her resolution to not have any regrets in the future. She says that she doesn’t want to carry regrets about not following her passion. This is why she chooses to put as much effort as she can into making a career out of it. 

Dejeshwini reveals that she finds art harmonious. It is owed to her creative process of drawing, something she practices quite often. Whenever she finds herself listening to music while drawing, she explains, her strokes find their rhythm in the rhythm of the song. 

For Dejeshwini, to enter the field of illustration with no prior background or a set backup plan, was only possible because she believed in her skills and was willing to learn persistently along the way. Drawing consistently, and putting your work out there is important to establishing your name and presence online. Following that mantra, she deems herself fortunate that things have worked out for her so far. And to people just beginning on the same career path as her, she offers only three pieces of advice drawn from her own experiences.

Her message!

It is important to have a surety of your career choice and its potential in the future, she says. You should have the ability to bear losses and failures or have a calculated backup plan otherwise. But all along this, the one necessary thing piecing everything together would be your faith in yourself. Trust yourself and your skills, and that is all there is to it!

Check out Dejeshwini’s beautiful work @dee_for_drawing on Instagram and show her some love.

Diving In The World of An Art Prodigy: Pranesh Walawalkar

An insight into the life and craft of the immensely talented Hyperrealist Portrait rangoli artist Pranesh Praveen Walawalkar

Published

on

Pranesh Walawalkar

Hyperrealism focuses on the suspension of the distance between reality and its imitative representation, interweaving the two so intricately that they are almost indistinguishable, what Jean Baudrillard puts as ‘the precession of simulacra’. 

Today, we are going to introduce you to a young hyperrealist portrait Rangoli artist Pranesh Praveen Walawalkar. In an exchange with The Talented Indian, the artist reveals his journey from being a juvenile artist winning art competitions at school to a fully dedicated professional at the young age of 20. Pranesh is adept at pencil sketches and hyperrealist Portrait Rangoli. 

A life of the artist starts at the cradle, develops over time and the seed of inherent talent nourished with the water of inspiration finally burgeons. Born and brought up in Mumbai, Pranesh’s artistic endeavor started early too. While at school he won many awards and strong support from family, friends and faculty because of the apparent talent in him. At an early age he became acquainted with hyperrealist Portrait Rangoli while visiting an exhibition where he was flabbergasted by “quality, realism, composition with theme creation, presentation of a subject and use of colours” in the displayed Portrait Rangolis. But the lack of resources and contacts at that point didn’t allow him to practice the same instantly. It was when he was 16 when he started practicing Portrait Rangoli. Still the issues like a lack of separate room for practicing Rangoli hurdled his way but he nevertheless crossed those hurdles. 

Credits: Instagram (Pranesh Walawalkar)

While in college, getting connected with the internet and winning the second position in a Portrait Rangoli competition gave him a major push.  

Inspiration is an omnipresent muse; you just want the eyes to see her. Blessed with this eye and curiosity to seek inspiration, Pranesh says that inspiration has revealed herself to him in various frames be it “surrounding, nature, others life, imagination, dreaming, and many different things some of them do not even exist”. 

Pranesh is a self-motivated artist and believes that failure is a flavour that cannot be avoided. People who discourage career in art, maintains Pranesh, are a demotivating presence. However, he didn’t let philistines devour his love for art. In days when everything goes haywire, he tries to look at the positive and by looking at his past achievements he invests a belief in hard work. For him in the recipe of success hard-work is the quintessential ingredient and admits that he deals with the fear of failure by giving it his all.

Credits: Instagram (Pranesh Walawalkar)

Art is often believed as a form of meditation, just like meditation requires immense focus and a tremendous amount of strength and perseverance, practicing art requires the same amount of focus and strength. Pranesh tells us, that a Portrait rangoli takes 13-14 hours to complete and there have been times when he worked without any break to complete his task at hand. With his undivided attention dedicated to a piece of art for long hours and cathartic effect at the completion, he believes, indeed, art is a sort of meditation. 

The simulacrum in his art carry an intrinsic message along with a wide range of themes like “social issues like child labour, recently COVID 19 awareness rangoli, inspirational portraits like Sachin Tendulkar, tribute to women in Indian Airforce, historical beauty showing ‘the grace of India sculptures’”. His art work is, thus, not only aesthetically pleasing but also has a didactic core. 

Credits: Instagram (Pranesh Walawalkar)

Pranesh believes that anyone even without an artistic background can succeed in becoming an artist just by pursuing their passion with utmost patience and perseverance. Developing skills in art by learning and knowing more, according to him, is important. 

At last, Pranesh leaves a message for all the young art enthusiasts and people in general to be patient for the things unfold at their own pace, to be perseverant because hard work has no alternative, to be motivated and to support other artists as well. He maintains that people can support an artist by sharing her/his work and by hiring them as and when required. 

Artists create art for the upliftment of the society and they deserve support from the society in return as well.

The Things That Can Come From The Ordinary: Sunayna Dey

With thick, large eyes and plushy cheeks, Sunayna Dey’s artwork will endear itself to you in a matter of mere moments.

Published

on

Sunayna Dey

Big, gloopy eyes are the first thing you will notice when you go through her artwork. It is, in fact, a signature in all the artistic pieces that she creates. Well, that and basing her artwork on the everyday things around her. Sunayna Dey has been quietly making her own way ever since she realized that art was something that she would like to dedicate her life to. Since then, she has come a long way, braving the uncertainties that come along with the field. And she has done it in the same manner as she does with all things, with complete and unquestionable faith and belief.

Credit: Instagram (Sunayna Dey)

Born and raised in Assam, Dey spent her childhood being immersed in all things artistic. What added to her own love for art was the fact that her parents encouraged her to pursue it, enrolling her in a painting school at the age of five. It soon became clear to her that this was something that she wanted to pursue more seriously. After all, she loved everything about it. When it was time to look for colleges, Dey already knew what she would be studying. She packed her bags and left for Mumbai, intending to study ‘Design’.

Credit: Instagram (Sunayna Dey)

A graduate from the University of Mumbai, Dey recalls her college days to be particularly formative for her. In fact, it was in college that she truly explored everything around her. From pursuing several freelance projects to consistently building her own style, Dey’s life in college was a time where she truly understood what it meant to be able to put your heart and soul into your work. To add to that, when she graduated, she did so at the top of her class.

Of course, all of that did nothing to slow her down. Achievement, ironically, breeds more achievements. With her bachelor’s degree completed, Dey realized that she could not, at this critical moment, slow down. She went on to get hired by a company as a graphic designer, working with celebrated brands. And, she was good. In fact, she was very good. However, at the end of it all, anything that sets a boundary for artistic creativity can feel incredibly restrictive for an artist. Her job as a graphic designer was paying the bills, sure, but the work itself did not feel creatively fulfilling. At the end of it all, Dey wanted to do something on her own. It was at this point in her life that she decided that she needed to leave it all behind, quit her job and start working on her own.

Credit: Instagram (Sunayna Dey)

New beginnings can often be filled with uncertainty and it wasn’t any different for Dey. Working as a freelancer meant that she constantly worried about her financial prospects. But she stuck with it. After all, this was a defining decision on her part and she wasn’t about to let go of it so easily. Instead, she worked consistently on building her own portfolio, developing her unique style in the process. Slowly, but surely, the clients began to come. Some from India, some from abroad. More importantly, Dey’s illustrative style resonated with children and, sensing an avenue there, Dey began to focus more on illustrations for Children’s books, flash cards and mascot designs, amongst others. Her efforts in that regard did not go unrewarded. Not only did she continue building a stable clientele, but Dey also honed her own skills while she worked on multiple projects that she, perhaps, would not have ventured into if the circumstances were different.

For Dey, art is not just a channel for creativity but also a medium that teaches the importance of focus and patience to an individual. More so, art, as a creative outlet, manages to capture everything around her. And, what’s more, Dey believes that all of it is built on the back of persistent work and effort. As she puts it, her experiences with failures have done nothing but push her even further.

At the moment, Dey finds herself working on four different Children’s books. And, as she looks forwards, she remains hopeful in her journey ahead. Of course, it is hope that is well earned. After all, you would be hard pressed to find someone more deserving of everything that she has than Sunayna Dey.

Art, Graphic Novels And A Conversation On Bob Ross: Swarnavo Datta

Swarnavo Datta, a brilliantly talented illustrator, talks about his love for Bob Ross and the idea of being happy while making mistakes.

Published

on

Swarnavo Datta

When we get talking, I learn that he is a Bob Ross fan too. And, much like the rest of us Bob Ross fans, Swarnavo Datta has his own story about how he came across the legendary artist. In point of fact, his story is intrinsically tied to his philosophy behind art. But that comes later. For now, mere sentences away from diving into his story, it’s important that you understand that Datta goes beyond being an artist creating incredible artistic pieces. Behind the art and his own personal style and the podcast that he hosts, there lies a thinking man, one who is always trying to explore and learn from things that are outside his own field of artistic inclinations.

Born in Asansol, Datta spent the first eighteen years of his life there before moving to Kolkata. When he recalls his childhood, he describes it in a manner reminiscent of growing up in the tea gardens of Assam. Perhaps I am drawing too much of a parallel, but Datta’ earliest memories reflect on the imaginative and creative bent that he has now. Art, for him, was never a dedicated passion at first. Initially, it all started as a general hobby, amongst other creative outlets.

Credit: Instagram (Swarnavo Datta)

What really captured Datta’s vivid imagination as a child were those old art programmes that were featured on Pogo and Nickelodeon. You already know I am talking about ‘Mad’ and ‘Art Attack’. That whole experience of watching people on television producing creative works was what Datta identified with when he came across Bob Ross in college. Mind you, this was back when the internet was still a fledgling platform. Back then, there was this whole channel of artists who would show you how to actually do things. 

As we talk more about our shared love for Bob Ross, we branch off into this tangent of what Bob Ross has been able to teach us. And, I am glad that he brought this up because that truly allowed me to understand the approach Datta takes to art. If you are familiar with the narrative style of Bob Ross, you would recall the idea of ‘happy accidents’ that Ross always preached about. What that essentially means is that in art, making a mistake, unintentionally smudging a bit of paint over something, is never something that has to be taken as a major detriment to your artistic piece. Instead, that smudge, that little mistake is just another happy accident, one that can be built on and incorporated in your final piece. That same train of thought is what Datta, now, applies to his own personal style.

When we get around to talking about his own personal style, Datta reveals that, at the beginning of it all, artistic style and the whole concept around it was always something that eluded him. In fact, it is something that he still grapples with. However, what he is very clear about is the fact that style is something that is apparent even if it cannot be defined tangibly. That instant flash of recognition when you look at a creative piece is what style truly represents to him. Over the last two years, Datta has been exploring the sphere of children’s book illustrations. That whole idea of conveying the human experience in a manner that is exaggerated and fantastical but still faithful to the concept is what he truly enjoys. 

“I am slowly starting to move away from the realistic way of doing things. Now, what gives me joy is making things whimsical, a little more fantastical.”

Swarnavo Datta

Even so, if you head over to his Instagram page, you will see that Datta incorporates the Indian experience into his artwork. When we get down to the nitty gritty of it, Datta isn’t as interested in showcasing a specific world that may or may not be foreign to you. Rather, he is interested in telling you a story about his world, one that is filled with beautiful colours and brilliant imagination. Indeed, as he says, storytelling is something that he really wants to incorporate into his work. And what’s more, he has already started doing so. Hidden amongst the numerous brilliant artistic pieces on his Instagram, is this project titled ‘Hotel California Illustrated’. The reason why I mention this is to do all the graphic novel lovers out there a major favour. If you are in love with the whole format of graphic novels, go check that whole project out. Datta has not only managed to weave a compelling narrative around the song, but done it in a manner that lends beautifully to the whole format of storytelling in graphic novels. That’s not all, however. Datta also has another project titled ‘Chotto Red Riding Hood’, a reimagined Indian version of the European classic.

Credit: Instagram (Swarnavo Datta)

Interestingly, Datta has also ventured out into podcasts and hosts his own podcast, titled ‘Paper Pencil Podcast’, where he features other artists and their stories. When asked about why he chose that specific platform, he responds with a simple explanation. Talking to other people and their respective journeys always leads to one learning new things. This, too, however, has come with its own set of challenges. From getting guests to managing his own professional life. Datta has a lot of responsibilities already. Notwithstanding that, this is still something that is engaging for him and if you listen to one of the episodes, I am sure it will be for you as well.

When we really sit down and look at his journey so far, there is a sense of consistent evolution to it. From starting out as a kid who pursued art as a hobby to realising the need for an artist to have his own imaginative sense when it comes to personal style, he has come a long way. Now, as he looks forward to illustrating books for children and telling stories, the fact that he is consistently looking forward to expanding and focusing his creative energy into that field is indeed a credit unto himself. And I am certain that, just like his illustrations, the stories that Datta wants to tell you are not only compelling but filled with the colours of a thousand brilliant memories.

Environmental Art: Synergy of Utility and Aestheticism

On this environment day, we bring forth the intriguing saga of environmental art and the artists that help propagate its arena.

dsuyasha7@gmail.com'

Published

on

Environmenal Art

Environmental art is a superordinate phrase that refers to a vast body of art forms that center their intrinsic motivation towards environment. Originating from the paleolithic imitations of nature, environmental art has transmogrified its caricature completely. Environmental art as an artistic trend, per se, came in vogue during the 1960s and 1970s. It is no longer just the “idola” of nature but comes with a wide perception. Environmental artists propagate social, moral, ecological utility through their art but are not limited to these visions either. They serve to depict the intimacy (while maintaining the autotelic nature of their art) between components of biosphere and Humans.

The contemporary artists are conscious of maintaining the aesthetic affront of their art along with its utilitarian purpose of creating awareness about various environmental issues. Nature in these art works is treated as mutually inclusive and slightly derives its characteristics from the Gaia theory proposed by James Lovelock as being sometimes “self-regulating”, like a being of flesh and blood. If the rapacious nature of human beings towards environment is an inclusive theme of these artists, then the destructibility of Nature is also depicted with existential turnabouts. In any case the synergistic interaction between environment and its component and human and its artificial surrounding is prominently present. So, to say, environmental art also is a representation of a tripartite: man, society and nature. The eco-centric approach of these artists, where anthropomorphism is present on the peripheric boundaries, makes them an ideal environmental activist too.

Talking about the aesthetic qualities of environmental art, it brings into existence the aural, visual and spatial sensations in the form of art. The somatic is associated, on a connotative level, to the incorporeal.

This World Environment Day, let’s have a brief look at some amazing environmental artists.

Arunkumar HG

Inspired by the rhythmic philosophy of environment and motivated to unravel the saga of nature Arunkumar HG, focuses on creating awareness towards the ecological welfare and the sustainable ways of utilizing the perks of nature through his art and even sustainable ways of creating art itself by biodegradable materials. He even promotes the ideology of art derived out of the mediums present in the environment.

Manav Gupta

Capturing the minute and vast elements of environment in his art installations and verses, Manav, promotes the “Arth” (a portmanteau for art for earth) movement. During the project “Arth” he transformed pottery into large avant garde contemporary art sculptures and installations to raise consciousness on environment and bring a change among people. His art installations captures what memory can not behold and poetry claws that memory with the interior flux of mind. Such is the nature of his art.

Harsha Durugadda

Awarded with the Biafarin award and Rio Tinto Sculpture award among others, the well applauded sculptor, Harsha Durugadda, believes in embedding symbolic meanings in his sculptures. The aesthetic sculptures of Durugadda behold the onlooker with the metaphysical tension in their core.

Rajyashri Goody

The diversity of mediums is a characteristic idiosyncrasy of Rajyashri Goody’s work. Apart from her rich body of work, she has been a part of a climate justice event held at Foreign Exchange at La Générale, Paris.

Art isn’t just for the revival of the sense of what we feel is beautiful, art is also a revival of what is necessary for the society, in this case an environmental awareness.
