Name Of The Artwork: "Folklore" Caption Of Artwork: "Folklore", 54cm × 37cm, poster color on paper. This is a painting that encapsulates the rich and diverse culture of the famous indian folk painting styles. Since the dawn of time, there have been various scriptures that depict lores and stories, which have over the millenia evolved into artistic forms like folk paintings. Every part of India has different styles of folk paintings, which each tell their very own stories. This painting, "folklore",as the name suggests, depicts various stories across india through different forms of folk arts. It is perhaps a scenic compilation of artforms like madhubani, patachitra, gond, rajasthani painting etc. It also shows the elements of the earth, that are: the water-comprising the fish, the land- with nature, humans and animals and the sky- having birds and the celestial bodies. These elements have been used in paintings all throughout history. But mostly, I love the idea of how this single painting posseses the ability to depict the multitude of cultures and stories from all over india.

Name Of The Artwork: "Green Solace" Caption Of Artwork: "Green solace", 37cm×28cm, poster color on paper. The painting is a symbol of hormony and peace in collaboration with nature and faith. Buddha is a certain depiction of peace and tranquility, which suggests that in living with nature, there is eternal peace. This is a call to all people to rejoice and indulge in the glorious beauty nature has to offer. Nature has the innate ability to ease the pain and suffering cursed upon humans by themselves. Name Of The Artwork: "Flora and fauna" Caption Of Artwork: "Flora and fauna", 37cm×28cm, acrylic on paper. The painting shows a well balanced habitat with different species that live in hormony with nature. However, in recent years their ecosystems have been severely afffected due to careless and selfish activities of humans. It is high time for these symbiotic relations are preserved and not violated. Tons of wildlife species have become endangered and some, even exitinct. This depiction is a call to preserve this innate beauty nature has to offer. Name Of The Artwork:  "The Eyes" Caption Of Artwork: "The Eyes", 30cm×21cm, acrylic on paper. Based on the concept of 'kitsch art', the painting called for crucial balance for between nature and the megacities humans have built. If the scales tip over, it would be critical for the earth. Carelessness and greed shall certainly be the end of man. The earth calls for a balance that creates a space suitable for all creatures on earth. The nature has eyes and it carefully watches the extent of human foolishness. Equilibrium is absolutely essential for survival. Name Of The Artwork: "Autumn cabin" Caption Of Artwork: "Autumn cabin", 30cm × 21cm, watercolor on paper. The cabin potrays a place that is away from the hustle and bustle human life has to offer. Deep inside a forest, it shall shelter it's inhabitants from suffering and offer them peace and solace. It is refuge for people who seek some semblance of tranquility that is seldom found in the world.
