Swati Kale, the Nature artist, is an ardent lover of flowers which she thinks are pure and innocent. According to her, flowers are a symbol of energy and the garden is a place of sentiments. Her garden of Flowers is her garden of memories, thoughts and dreams. The thoughts grow as freely as flowers and the dreams come true on her canvas.

Anupam Pal is from Jamshedpur and has dedicated himself to the creation of Indian-style paintings with exclusive styles and ultimate forms. He is a rising artist with an absolute zeal for redefining the culture of artisanship. Since the time Anupam took up the art, he has been creating a myriad of exquisite paintings. The reflection of his visionary shades and the brush strokes can be seen in his DIAM ART painting and spiritual art Paintings. The artist’s dynamic thought process is reflected through his abstract ‘Radha Krishna’ painting. ‘Conservation’ is another ultimate contemporary piece, which visualizes and explains conservative thoughts of the society related to women. Anupam uses a vibrant colour palette on the canvas to reflect the mixed moods of his subjects.

P J Stalin
Stalin's work is dependent on design fundamentals, form, colour and composition. He believes that the simplest forms evoke complex emotions. He spontaneously begins an art piece and it becomes more detailed as the end product starts to show itself. The process involves layering. There are no preliminary sketches of what is going to develop. He nurtures different forms and shapes in the middle of the process. His colour theory seems to be the most immediate aspect of his work to the viewers very instinctive.

Artist Statement Inspirations… I know as an artist that when I see another artist’s work, I generally want to know “What’s the story behind the painting? What inspired them?” The word inspiration sparks other ideas and thoughts. Its etymology (paraphrasing here) is ‘in breath’ or ‘to inhale.’ I love this because when I connect with my inspirations I am not only viewing them, I am in fact inhaling their essences on many many levels. Seeing is only one. Next time you are inspired to do something, consider that you are taking a Divine “in breath” of something that moves your heart, soul, or body. I am inspired by nature, colour, sound, and light. I am inspired by angels, fairies, other elements, and star people. As I grew up with the doors to other dimensions constantly opening, closing, and opening again…and now remaining open, it has altered everything in my world. This way of perceiving has flowed into every aspect of my life including creative ventures and healing sessions I offer. I call it “under the influence” …… of the Divine I might add. And when we are under the influence of the Divine we are truly home and every cell in our body is aware of it and is every dimension of our being.

Anukta Mukherjee Ghosh
Anukta’s magical strokes breathe a symphony of the world around her, as she goes about celebrating life through her colours.
The horizon of her works is beyond the boundaries of categorization. Just as many India(s) breathe within one India, having had a multi-city upbringing and career, Anukta gives an ode to that diversity through her works. Ever inspired by the spaces she inhabits, the places she visits and the people she meets, her works are mostly personal insights and associations from the ordinary to the obvious. Colors, forms and lines play a special interest in her works done mostly in a contemporary realistic style.
Rising above from her corporate avatar of over a decade, Anukta bid adieu to her successful career and embarked on a new adventure to complete a two-year online Diploma course in drawing and painting with a certificate of distinction from the London School of Art, while also honing her skills through guidance from professional artists.
For Anukta painting is not merely about the end result. in a world that is standing on the brink of chaos, Anukta believes in the redemptive power of art. Her strokes cast a magical spell of positivity and cheerfulness on the audience, reaching not only the heart but the very soul of those who take respite in art.
Anukta’s paintings have been exhibited in solo and group shows across India and abroad. Her paintings and commissioned projects adorn homes and corporate houses across India and worldwide in the US, UK, New Zealand and Dubai. Among her noted commissioned works are the ones for ITC Ltd., and Speciality Restaurants Ltd. ( London).
At present her works can be viewed online through a renowned online Gallery in Paris or via her own website. Her works are also selected as a repository for viewing through Google Book and she owns the copyright of the images.

As the moment flashes by, leaving its colour on my being, I try to hold on to it. For these colours fade away with time, pushed back into oblivion by fresh colours of new moments. Such are the workings of the ever-changing panorama that is life. I long to internalize the moment and bring it to the realm of the tangible, where I can go back and live it again. But need I tell you, that to do so, is impossible? So, the closest I can get to express what my words cannot express and to define what my thoughts cannot define is to try and create a visual replica of my perception, on the rectangular arena of a canvas. On this taut, grainy playground, my subconscious meets the viscous movement of paint, talks to it intimately, and together they bring out and concertize the colours of my being. I hope my brushes and colours can talk to you and testify to what I mean.
