Goonjan Jain is a Mumbai-based artist who originally hails from Kolkata in West Bengal (India).
Goonjan began her professional career as a Chartered Accountant for a large corporate in the City of Joy, but she discovered her true passion after taking a hobby art class at the Rajaram Art Studio in the Maximum City.
With this first step, she began her true vocation and embarked on a full-time career as an artist. In a short time, Goonjan has explored various artistic mediums, such as oils, charcoal, soft pastels, and watercolors – but favours acrylic above all else. After many years honing her craft, she still sees herself as an eternal learner – constantly experimenting and exploring new perspectives and subjects in her work.
Goonjan’s works have found a welcome audience in Mumbai, where her works have been successfully exhibited in a number of group shows and garnered her private commissions.
Her works continue to awe audiences as she has received wide acclaim and multiple awards as an “Exceptional Artist” in online art contests by digital galleries.
Unveiling our rendezvous with Goonjan Jain
A. How many years you have been in the field of art and why?
I've been working in this field for thirteen years, but I only started exhibiting in 2018. I've always been interested in art, but between the desire to obtain a professional qualification and the demands of corporate life, I've never had the opportunity to pursue my hobby. After I left my corporate job, I enrolled in art classes, and I haven't looked back since.
B. What media you have been using so far?
I've experimented with various mediums such as charcoal, water colours, and soft pastels, but my favourites are oil and acrylic. I prefer to work with a variety of media.
C. What media you are planning to explore in the future?
I'm thinking about trying alcohol ink because the way the colour flows freely and takes various shapes and shades fascinates me.
