I have been practicing Mandala Art, Dot painting, pour Painting and other forms of Art. These are the source of peace and satisfaction that I get after long working hours…From small Pebbles to canvas to fridge magnets, I love creating new artwork almost every day. I strongly believe in the positive vibes that are generated by any form of Art.

Amidst covid-19 , we have seen nature at its best. This artwork clearly showcases the eternal power of nature in maintaining the balance of earth. A woman in it is showcasing Mother nature.

Mother Nature provides us with all the healing, health, and vitality that we need. It’s up to us to harness that power and bring these natural elixirs into our lives so we can lead a glorious, happy, healthy, and long life! There’s something to be said about the “magical” effects that Mother Nature has on humans, us.

Art is my therapy and encourages every person out there to engage in such mentally soothing activities during this difficult time.  

I am a working professional. In this fast moving world of competition  I never got enough time ,resources and support to follow my passion. This lockdown is a blessing in disguise which gave me an opportunity to do what I love. I am a self taught artist. I define myself as a magician  of sorts , turning thoughts of wonderment into pieces of originality. Each creation showcases my own personal journey. Passion runs through my veins and my emotions are fuel to my craft. When you glance over my work you are catching a glimpse of my soul. I am an  Artist by soul. Paintings that indicate the physicality of nature , vitality of life and sense of freedom.

Painting by Rudraksh Baranwal, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh

About myself:-

I love to do paintings and sketching and it was missing in the past one month.. during this quarantine I was very frustrated not because of the complete shutdown but because of the missing platform and Indiaart gave me this opportunity to make this happen and bring out something better rather than sitting idle.

This painting is about the current warriors of our nation India. Our doctors, policemen, helping person’s like sweepers, vegetable seller’s,etc. They are protecting us by providing their duties while everyone is staying home. Full nation is locked but not for them,they are still giving their duties just to make sure that every person is safe at their place.
