Over these years I have experimented with different forms and styles of art which has only led me to have a better understanding of the world of art. Even when I look at my paintings from a year ago, I often seem to have something I might want to change or make better, which I feel signifies the progress that has taken place with each painting.
I have never seen art as work or a task I have to complete. To me, it comes naturally. With painting, it’s mostly like taking out time to do other things, once I sat to paint I wouldn’t stop for hours, but then again I did manage to balance my school work as well. And with painting not seen as a task or work to do it only gave me a feeling of relaxation and only one actual task to complete i.e. homework.
I feel as a young learner, taking steps to establish myself as an artist I have years to go till I can settle upon a particular style of art. For every painting I make, I discover a new fascination and fondness towards the style, and right now at 17 I feel I have so much more to explore. Though, I do plan to develop a style of my own and make it an identity for my work (which is yet to be discovered) I am still very enthusiastic to try new things every day.
The world of colours I feel is an escape from reality, to a place happier and better with new discoveries each day! Which also explains why my first show was called Colorscape!
When it comes to painting, I feel like I have nothing to worry about, it makes me feel safe and assured for some reason. When I look at my work, it gives me a sense of assurance to a promising future my parents would be proud of!
Art as a career is what I have dreamt of, most of my life. What better option would I have than to pursue something I absolutely love doing?
My future plans include securing a degree in BFA and establish myself as a young artist during the course of my education. I plan to study abroad, and work hard enough to be one of the best young artists not only in my own country, but places across the globe.
