ARTIST STATEMENT

Hi, I’m Megha, an artist based out of Bangalore, India. I have been sketching and painting for as long as I can remember. Around three years back, I shifted to oil paints and absolutely fell in love with it. My work comprises painting a variety of subjects in a realistic style. Nature is my biggest source of inspiration as I constantly find myself drawn towards landscapes and the varied hues of scenery. My aim for every painting is to capture the essence of light and shade and achieve a convincing sense of reality.

I primarily work with oil on canvas. Oil paints add a rich texture to the canvas and building intricate layers with oil is one of my favourite parts of painting. I also enjoy sketching and occasionally work with acrylics and watercolour. I would love to hear from you if you’re interested in my work or want to inquire about commissions. Please feel free to drop me a message through my Contact page.
You can also reach me on social media either through FacebookInstagram or Pinterest where I post regular updates about my work.

BIO

I was born and brought up in Kolkata, India. I believe growing up in this city has played a huge role in shaping my artistic endeavours from a very young age. It’s where I started pursuing swimming, art and Hindustani music as hobbies.

Art has always been my pick among them since childhood, most of which I spent simply doodling and sketching for long hours. My early works are mostly sketches and watercolour works. After I finished college, my continued passion for art led me to embark upon greater challenges in the field, bringing me to where I am now.

Singing is another art form which I find very liberating. Having been a part of music clubs during my years of education, I enrolled myself for Hindustani music classes while I was in college, at AR Rahman’s KM Music Conservatory. I really cherish the time I spent there, as it provided me with exposure to professional music setups great music artists and teachers. More importantly, it opened up my mind to endless opportunities and helped me make incredible friends. You can also have a look at some of my group performances and cover videos on Youtube. Currently, I perform in classical concerts and am pursuing my Hindustani degree.

Around the end of my college years, I also started taking a keen interest in cooking as I am a big foodie. (Real Reason: I lived in a hostel and craved for good food at midnight) I started binge watching Youtube videos to try them out during my vacations, and before I knew it, I had cooked and posted over 60 recipes on Instagram! This made me start my own food blog where I post some of my favourite Indian and Italian recipes.

I love learning new things and constantly try to experiment and update myself in my chosen fields of art, music and food, of which art takes predominance. The entire process of painting gives me incredible peace and joy and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for me.
