This painting "The Veiled Charisma" is in mixed media on acid free heavy weight linen finish Acrylic Paper (400gsm) of size 12"x12". This multicolour figurative abstract painting presents a beautiful woman partially veiled and exuding a colorful aura. This painting is in mixed media - acrylic paint, pen and ink and golden spray paint. It has been painted to give "collage effect", no paper has been pasted for the collage. I believe in the power of colours to help evoke a positive or negative response. This painting is in bright and vibrant colours, bringing warmth to the surrounding space.
I draw and paint intuitively and spontaneously, moving from chaos and void to order, balance and rhythm. I go with the flow, painting only something that I connect to, or something that comes from deep within. For me, art is like meditation and music. It blocks out all negativities and pressures, putting me in a state of “flow” (as Mihaly stated).
I love to create using lines and bright, bold colours, often combining them as mixed media. I like to work with the “collage feel” even while painting. Working as a Designer for many years, I frequently worked with lines and dots. I enjoy drawing freehand, where every freehand action, every mark created, leads to the next one, and next, creating a poetry with lines, a story in rhythm. The bright, vibrant colours and free-flowing lines and figures of Mithila/Madhubani art of my native place (Bihar, India) also inspire me
