Unveiling our rendezvous with Bharati Shah
A. How many years you have been in the field of art and why?
I have been dabbling in sketching and painting since my school. But serious art bug bit me when I was 18. I learnt about oil painting. Then there was no stopping me. I took to it very easily. So I have been painting for more than 40 years.
B. What media you have been using so far?
I did oil painting, water colours, iPad painting and acrylic painting.
C. What media you are planning to explore in the future?
I am concentrating on acrylic painting only.
D. What kind of uniqueness you spotlight using your art?
I am a cubist artist where my abstract works are fragmented. Cubism is a 100 year old art form. I experiment with unusual combination of shades which is very much appreciated by art lovers. That is my uniqueness.
The E Today is thankful to Bharati Shah for her valuable time and even to Mr. Hiral Shah, The Chief Editor; who is currently promoting artist from every corner of India and, looking at creating a much needed platform to showcase every artist of the nation.
