Out Of a Box

Another "Out of a box" event...
another chance to let my creative juices flow...
another chance to witness what others thought about it
another chance to experience variety of mediums, textures, colours, styles....etc. etc.
Lucky me :)
Don't be disheartened for I will take you to the journey
and through my lens
show you all the beautiful things I saw !
During "Al Quoz Festival" here in Dubai
"Artry" told us to create art 
"Out of a Box"...
and the theme was MIGRATION

So excited as always  I also created this


Migration to Dubai from my home Delhi
 was not easy but then adaptability to change is the key. 
Instead of dwelling on the negatives
 I took it as an adventure.
 So began the journey of new dreams,
 new wishes and new hopes…
 after all change is absolutely essential to creativity!
 And here I am …
 with sky above me,
 earth below me and fire within me
 I am all set to see…
to explore… 
to do…
and to create myself!

Now I show you the boxes as they looked after installation!!


I hope you enjoyed :)

Art Fair Dubai 2014

was held here on the 1st and 2nd November! 
They invited and encouraged galleries 
and artists
 to make the most of this exclusive platform
 for presenting their artwork and gain prominence.

Artists and Art galleries 
from all around the world participated
 and what an awesome Art Fair it was.
So much for art...colours ....
what an experience!

I really liked this sculpture

The vibrant colours were just enough to make my heart go oolala!

The fine details and super textures were appreciable!

To add to the whole charm ...
the famous Indian artist A. V. Ilango
 was there to paint live in front of us!
 Now what else could my little artist heart ever wish  for :)
It was so fascinating
 to watch him start from simple dabs of colour
 to a beautiful painting...
his palette knife moved like magic
 and I stood there appreciating how the eyes
...hands and thoughts coordinated with each other
 to result into a beautiful piece of art!

and there was live music too!!

The painting finally...

I held a workshop the next morning.
 Drawing and painting on re-used tea bags...
now this was something they had never heard about!

The creative process is a cocktail of instinct, skill, culture and a creative fever. It is not a drug, it is a particular state when everything happens very quickly, a mixture of consciousness and unconsciousness, of fear and pleasure ... it's a little like making love, the physical act of love. Francis Bacon

What an amazing experience !!
