Shubhangi Singh Srivastava Art has been my heart and soul. My thoughts, my vision, my love - I have the ability to pour it all out through my art. Give me a canvas, a box of colours, a couple of paint brushes, and I am ready to express my feelings and experiences in the best possible way. I started my journey as a professional artist in 2017 and completed my diploma in Fine Arts from National Institute of Fine Arts - Delhi, India (NIFA) in the same year. I also completed a course in Abstract Art and Interpretation from International Fine Art Academy - Indore, India (IFAA) in 2018. Prior to pursuing art as a full-time career, I was working as a Market Research Professional with a professional services firm (KPMG) and have 6 years experience in the corporate world. My style of artwork is hugely inspired by Indian artists V.S. Gaitonde and Natvar Bhavsar, and Clifford Still (the eminent colour field artist). I believe colours have their own beautiful language and can express delight. My focus, therefore, has always been in using a plethora of colours and blending them together to create a story of their own. My artworks carry a message, sometimes inspired by our surroundings, sometimes by our inner voices and at other times by both. I love to use different textures in my art and all my artworks showcase one or more type of textures. Along these years, I have found and understood my style of painting and have integrated elements that define the core of my works, and can be understood as a unique identifier of my paintings. These being lotus, lines and dots: Lotus - It defines strength, strength to bloom against all odds. The way a lotus captures sunlight each morning, blooming from the muddy waters and spreading joy, is something we can embrace as humans. It’s a sign of persistence, a sign to never give up, a sign to find your inner joy. This entire process makes one so beautiful. The deeply rooted stem of a lotus reveals strength and divinity. It’s indicative of our ability to conquer our fears - using our own centre. Dots/Circles/Lines - What are we? The question lingers, and what is the best way to encapsulate life? The Beginning and The End - Shunya, Zero, DOT. The journey, which begins from nothingness and ultimately finishes to nothingness - the lines denote the journey – be it crooked, straight, curved or smooth - these are the lines that take us from one DOT to another. Together let’s embark on this beautiful journey with all our strength and persistence - from nothing to everything and then nothing. During my years as an artist, I have exhibited my artworks in multiple art exhibition within the country (INDIA) and have found an audience who loves to invest in my artworks. I am positive that you will enjoy my language of love and passion - which flows through my artworks.
