Magic and tragic happens
Magic and tragic happens when you least expect it
Reached Summit (Chader trek) and back, and I was happy that I did it. On my way back home, I visualised about the small luxuries of life like water coming from tap, taking hot water bath, to eat warm food, being with family, to sleep in warm bed, etc. As I reached home after a long journey, I didn't know the tragedy was waiting.

Link of Chader trek to give you the feel:

Some day you will look back and know exactly why it had to happen
I remember, 1st January 2018, as the New Year begins, I immersed myself In the world of colors and was working on a painting. I took the pressure of creating a masterpiece, as I wanted it badly. I have to justify my decision of quitting my well-paid job. But as you know...Art is is from the heart. You can't create a masterpiece in pressure, like you can't fall in love by force or in pressure. It takes it's own time and no matter the research done, you cannot put in your logic.

Story behind “Acceptance”

"Art conveys ideas and emotions that are difficult to put into precise words"

I started with “Acceptance” painting at Piramal Museum of Arts, in their open studio. They had a weekly residency program for emerging artists. The space was in the centre of the Corporate offices, with people coming to interact in between. To be precise, there was lot of distraction to connect myself with my own emotions.

The right answer is - there is no right answer

Amidst the uncertainty, everyone is looking for the right answer. But there is no right answer. Abstract art is similar. It differs from person to person and there is no one meaning.

An artist might have created it with something in mind, depending on his/her emotions, but you can have a completely different view about it, or have no view at all. Abstract Art is not about understanding, it’s about a feeling. Your view will also change, as you change with time and that’s the beauty of it.

10 black abstract artworks for your home

“We come from darkness and end in darkness. All the colors exist in between” 

By definition, abstract artworks are the ones where the main color theme is black (or a very dark tone of grey). Some people might think black abstract paintings are dark or ominous. The “darkness” or “blackness” of the painting may also convey actual darkness or the night time. Black is associated with power, fear, mystery, strength, elegance, formality, death, evil, aggression, authority, rebellion, and sophistication. Black is required for all other colors to have depth and variation of hue.

Every Life Matters

I am a little scared of waking up in the morning nowadays. I am afraid to pick up my phone and get the news updates, to turn on the television, thinking about the incidents that have been taking place in the world while I am sleeping comfortably in my bed.

Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, the world has also been facing challenges like earthquake, cyclone, locust attack, airplane crash, wildfires, floods, riots, volcano eruption amongst many others. As if these natural attacks were not enough, the inhuman behaviour against George Floyd and as a result the protests and riots in America also shocked me.

'The Eternal Song' - series inspired by Bhagawad Gita

History repeats itself, though in different forms. I have created this artwork series, as a different medium to communicate the same thing which the world is saying.
Today's situation is similar to Mahabharata. World is facing a war against Covid-19. Just that, the war is not on the land of Kurukshetra. Whole world is a battleground. We are the ones who have to fight it, like the warriors fight in the battlefield.

For the believers of Lord Shiva

What you call as coincidence, I call it "Magic". Artistic journey has many ups and downs, (I guess every journey has). There was a time when I was struggling with my art career. Struggle not in terms of survival, as I am lucky to have support of my family and friends. But I like to be independent.

I dedicate my art to my mother, so "Atignas"; reverse of my mom's name "Sangita". This name was also clicked while having a conversation with my friend Raj Mitra. Coming back to the struggling phase, one day my mother came and gifted me a canvas roll and asked me to create. I am very emotional, as receiving so much love and support from her, gave me strength to create.

Atignas Art: A Tribute And A Mission

“She will Rise” She is independent; she is strong; she is life. This painting is about a girl who rises strongly amid societal pressures. As she transcends from a girl to a woman, she walks along a fiery path — absorbing the fire and turning that fire into light. The rope of expectations that had once chained constrained her — burns out too. She frees herself and leaves of trail for others to emulate.
