Art gives form to that which is formless.Originating as an emotion in the heart of its creator.
In my career as a Fashion Designer, I have found inspiration in varied mediums of expression like mainstream fashion, cinema, fine arts, music, architecture, photography and traditional Indian handicrafts.
Art is a vast field.One person’s art might be another person’s abstract and vice versa.Just like in nature various beautiful, bizarre and mystical forms synchronize in perfect symmetry, like wise different forms of arts converge at some point to create one big picture, a summation of how we experience life.
Landscapes, Historical Cities, Architecture, Snowfall, CherryBlossoms, Woman’s Beauty, Human Emotions, all provide the fascinating inspirations, fantasy and drama for creation of arts.
To spot extraordinary in ordinary is a blessing for any creator of arts.
