To be honest, for the first time in a long time, we were both blown away and drawn in by art in a manner of speaking. And you will know and experience exactly the same feeling once you check out diyartncrafts by Pune-based Artist, Aaishwarya. For reals, first, we were taken aback by the gorgeous, deftly done Gouache Artworks, Watercolour Landscapes and Acrylic Paintings using vivid colours and nature for inspiration. Everything from the Kerala backwaters to a garden of daisies to magical nights under the moon and start -- we couldn't wait to commission a piece for our friends and families.
That's till we were hit with these artworks making their way to handmade bookmarks, mini canvas, sketchbooks, calendars and coasters. We did some more stalking, only to fall deeper in love with Aaishwarya's style that boasts a certain genuinity and appeal. Then we were soon introduced to her love affair with Indian artforms, after we spotted tribal folk art, Madhubani art and Warli art on bookmarks and her line of Lippan Art. For those not in the know, Lippan Art or Lippan Kaam is the traditional mural craft using mud and mirror work from Kutch, Gujarat. Aaishwarya takes things up a notch by playing with contrasting colours.
But that's not even the best bit that diyartncrafts has on offer, because we haven't even come to the Peg Dolls! Exactly! Picture the cutest, most heartwarming custom Peg Dolls of Families, Newly Weds in their Traditional Attire or your BFF!
