Drawing Inspiration: Artists From Across India To Keep An Eye On
She’s a Delhi-based artist, very young, and has developed a strong style already. She makes the most intriguing portraits that make you want to stare and yet feel uncomfortable. She’s working on an exhibition which will most likely happen in Delhi at the end of the year. It’s refreshing to see someone making work that isn’t all about how pretty or aesthetically pleasing it looks. Currently, she’s making a series called Enemy – Friend – Lover where her close friends are her muse.

Rahul is mostly known for his filmmaking, and his company is called Starving Artist Films. We recently bumped into him and he showed us the pen drawings he has been making and they are great. He uses a super fine drawing pen to patiently conjure up some really fun and surreal drawings. He’s just started focusing on his art and we think he’s going to be making some fun work in the coming months.

She is a wonderful, whimsical, collage artist based in Delhi and has showcased her work in Dubai, Japan and Hong Kong. When you meet her, she comes across as a simple girl, but looking at her artwork one can immediately tell the complexities of her wandering mind. She has documented her emotions, her good times, her depression, through layered self portraits.
