Details of artist Mansi Sagar:
In her words “About me…..I did an art teacher diploma after 12th, then G.D.art, Dip.A.Ed. all education done from Nashik Maharashtra. Here I am telling to tell you about my art style…which is based on ‘nude art’.
Nude art does not represent only the naked body but nudity is about the deep thoughts and thinking of the artist. An artist is attracted to some preferences or priorities at some stage in life; I also reached the same stage a few years back. Nudity indicates a journey towards the preference I have chosen. The hardships that I went through have coaxed me to continue to take this tough path; the mission is still on. But whenever I do nude and semi-nude portraits, I go into a peculiar trance-like sensation. In my paintings, I focus on “the difficulties faced by women at every stage in her life” and “different stages of her life”. Each painter has some shape in mind before starting to paint; this generates a thought process in mind, and the art is born. The main thought coming to my mind is about purity when I visualize nudity, which cannot be found in any other shape. I have a great attraction for the nude forms since the beginning. With these shapes in mind, I hope to create paintings with a different intent and dedicate them to the art-lovers!
I felt that I might not be allowed to create nude paintings if I marry; hence I have decided not to marry, ever! Since there was great difficulty in getting models for nude paintings, I created “Self-Nude” paintings! My paintings have given me the honor of winning awards in exhibitions held by the Art Society of India, Prafulla Dahanukar art foundation, and the Art society of Maharashtra. Not only that, but I have sold my paintings in India and outside India too! “
Second artist Bipin Shinol from Ahmedabad :
In his words
” I have completed my post-diploma in painting from faculty of fine Arts, M.S. University Baroda in 1999. Since then I am working on my painting, which is about my experiences of everyday life. I work with a personalized form of expression where many of the times the protagonist is myself. An image that resembles to my face structure with a character who is an observer at one point and at other he is unaware of his acts simply is a layman, involved in natures process of life on this earth.
I give much emphasis on drawing quality in my work. Adding comparative elements as in one of my recent paintings. I showed an accidental incident in comparison with a child’s play. I feel an urge to improve my quality by exploring various possibilities as in this work.
My technique of painting assimilates the use of high-resolution scanning of prints and photos, composing the same using the latest computer software [Adobe Photoshop] and hardware, as well using large format digital printing machines to print the image directly on the canvas and thereafter over-painting out the image using oil paint.
