Q. What is your definition of 'Selfmade'?
A. So for me, 'Selfmade' is someone who has been on the ground & on the field, doing their art and nothing can bother them. Selfmade people are so focused on doing something that they want to, that distractions/hate or anything of that sort doesn't affect them. They don't worry or get scared of the world, they just bold it out there.
Krantinaari is one of those people. She's not afraid of what people have to say or how much hate or demotivation people want to give, but she's all about being focused on the right agenda that she has to execute. I want to make a change for the people who are suffering in this world, I'm a very public-sector driven artist & very hands down with my audience/target. That is my definition of 'Selfmade'.
Q. What do you strive for?
A. I strive for a better world, for the people who are facing injustice. That's my main target as 'Krantinaari' & as an artist. Using illustrations, I want to enhance the Indian aesthetics and add my own touch to it. I just want people to feel happy and de-stressed when they see my artwork. I want them to feel light and happy; and if it's an album art, I want to express as much as possible. So essentially, I want to strive for happiness and peace. I think that's what we have to do with life today because there's so much happening around in the world that's stressing us out, making us feel inferior and not allowing ourselves to be free. I want my art to be a source of freedom for people.
