Unveiling our rendezvous with Kanishka Mehra
A. How many years you have been in the field of art and why?
Every Child is an Artist but they usually quit Art once they grow up. I never really quit practicing Art and so I'm an Artist since 1997. I've been selling art since past 3years.
When I started gaining recognition for my Art I knew it was the time to level up which was when I decided to sell my Art..
Art became my passion and it came to me with alot of patience And practice.
During college days I have managed so many proxies just to come back home and Paint!
All I need is some good music and a place to scribble, I can paint for all day a night long.
B. What media you have been using so far?
I have explored various mediums like charcoal, soft pastles, Acrylics, oil, coffee.
I love to work with oils and Acrylics the most.
C. What media you are planning to explore in the future?
I plan to work on MIXED MEDIA and Coffee as a medium in future.
D. What kind of uniqueness you spotlight using your art?
As a person and therefore as an Artist I am emotionally inclined towards the people and traditions of my country. But what I believe is people of my generation are drawn more towards the western culture, not realizing the Gem of knowledge that's hidden in our Veda's and what our sages have left behind in Hindu Puran's. Through my Art I intend to create an awareness among the people of my country to know and respect the traditions and science that is hidden in our Holy Books and Veda's in the form of treasure.
The E Today is thankful to Kanishka Mehra for his 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.
