Art is an all-in-all meditation for Rukshana Hooda, an abstract artist from Mumbai whose art work articulates nature bringing us closer to the Mother Earth.
The Semi Abstract Artist has pursued her Foundation degree from Sir J.J. School of Art and was armed with a Diploma in Textile Design from Sophia College, Mumbai. She revisited her core and created Semi-Abstract Paintings which are about designating a style of painting or sculpture in which the subject remains recognizable although the forms are highly stylized in a manner derived from abstract art.
According to her The biggest challenge, which she finally overcame, was to find her own space and get back to creativity whilst being a full-time homemaker. She managed to overcome all of it and get back to art and art shows, to see every day as a challenge, to heal, to be able to do more and better art, win awards, to be motivational which she feels is a tremendous BLESSING.
She has been an exhibitor (both solo and in group) at various prestigious venues, most prominent of them are Out of the Blue Art Space by Le Sutra (Mumbai), Gallerie Leela at The Leela Kempinski (Mumbai), Kohinoor Continental (Mumbai), Nehru Centre at Mumbai, Trident (Oberoi) at Mumbai, Dubai Media City in Dubai, Kamal Nayan Bajaj in Mumbai, Taj Lands in Bandra Mumbai, AIFACS in New Delhi, SPANDAN International Art & Craft Festival in Goa and The Prestigious Jubilee Arts.
