In the words of Aanchal:
Since my childhood, picking up a brush has always excited me. Back then, I didn’t know what that curiosity meant. I didn’t set out to be an artist. But as my portfolio advanced and people started reviewing my work, I noticed that I have a pattern in my work. Each time I started with a different idea in my mind and materials to be used, but in the end, my painting depicted a consistent methodology.
I am a self-taught artist and the art works that I make are placed in the canon of modernist art, in hope of making visible those nuances which have been overlooked without enough thought given to them. My work has always been grounded in pleasure and aesthetics. Its distinct visuals yet repetitive nature frees my imagination and provides renewed sense of continuity to keep exploring the rich patterns, figures, textures, colors and media.
Inspired and invigorated by the boldness of the Acrylics, these colors depict the mood of my painting, each having an expression of its own. Along with acrylics, fluids and markers have always been my art mediums. Lately, I have started exploring and incorporating spray paints into my work. Over the years, I have developed skill for using my fingers along with the brushes for each of my work, be it wall graffiti, canvas or any other base.
Some of my subject matter comments on Human Nature, while others depict my fascination with owls since they are a symbol of wisdom. They can see what we can’t.
Of late, I have developed an interest of putting on paper, first and foremost everything that I see, feel and experience. None of it is intentional; it has been developing and evolving over time.
I do not intend to write a statement about my art since I believe that a work piece should speak for itself.There isn’t a wrong and a right message. Each person grosses something that is a little different from what someone else sees in the same picture and I’m gratified with that.
