Artist’s Statement

“I as a visual artist seek the medium of painting to express myself, honestly this is the better way for me to express”! Colors are my comfort zone, Color palette, brushes, painting mediums, variety of surfaces to paint on… you can go on. I believe it’s the ability to reincarnate the mind through artistic expression gives rise to an Art Form. In simple words, “I am an Artist”.
“I am not running to reach anywhere, enjoying the process of learning new things in the journey of art. Constantly searching the new mediums to express my thoughts through my art. I love the pain of creation; the process of an idea is taking shape, many times knowing the end result but sometimes without knowing the end result! And feel that restlessness to reach that point of the end result! You are welcome to join me on this creative path, as this journey is endless!

Biography

"Bright, dull, greens, blues, reds, dry, watery colors and lots more colors mixing with each other! “yes the color palette is the real identity of any artist.”

Girija, is an artist by mind and birth... Even before she could do math she had better grasp of the addition of colors and their outcomes. Girija was born and brought up in western Indian city of Pune which is blessed by many artistic traditions. Girija completed her formal education in a reputed College of Arts in western, India and graduated in Commercial Arts. Although she is very much comfortable in all mediums like oil, water, acrylic and digital authoring suites like Adobe Illustrator and Flash, she prefers to find solace in fine art authored by human hands. Girija worked as visualizer in Graphical Media industry in Pune and Bangalore before returning full time to her passion of creating visually stunning artefacts of art. She firmly believes in rendering the figures and forms present in her mind in abstract form to a more concrete physical medium in various art forms and styles. There are no restrictions of any shape any color or medium to use when you are an artist with artful mind! Girija uses water colors, acrylics, oil, pen, pencil, ink, pestles anything which can paint on paper, canvas, wood, fabric, cardboard, glass, wall any surface like these! Girija revels in the materializing the Chaotic Collage from her mind onto her canvas where it becomes tranquil as it acquires definite shape and color. No matter what is the medium or what is the surface Girija loves to paint nature in various forms! You will find people, birds, flowers and many more natural elements in her artworks.
