Digital Art by Khushboo R Talanje, New Delhi – art created in lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic

Hello, This is Khushboo from Delhi. I am and Architect and Masters in urban Design. During my architecture, i made sure that i make a birthday card for my friends every year, even those who were not close to me. The feeling of making personalized cards was the best. For me artwork is a recreation, it makes me happy and kind of stress buster. After entering into professional life,  I am mostly busy with work and travelling to cities and I hardly get time to explore art which made me feel even more stressed. Thanks to this lockdown, I got to revive the positivity in my life and it also heals anxiety, stress etc.

I am sketching everyday depending on what comes to my mind and i just start sketching it. Looking at the work from home situation, I am somehow trying to take out 1-2 hrs to sketch.

So, I just saw this post and  I don’t have the photos as mentioned in post.I am sharing whatever photos i have. Note that these are all digital paintings done on iPad with Procreate software. The size is 20X20 cm.

Hope you like it.

Following are the themes I have been working on:

  1. The quarantine life
  2. Cycle of quarantine life
  3. Stay away but stay connected
  4. Incredible Indian art- Madhubani painting
  5. Super moon -Nightscape
  6. Nightscape mountain View
  7. Lockdown- Human vs Nature

Painting by Madhuri Santoji

At Peace, painting by Madhuri Santoji (acrylic on canvas, 17 x 12 inches)

I like painting as it a great stress buster. I love the way colours bring out the best out of me. I am a sailor by profession i.e. I am an engineer on ship and away at sea for 6 months of a year. Right now on vacation and stuck at home during lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic.

In the background I have done acrylic liquid pour and on top of it painted abstract Buddha and lotus. It is one the unique painting I have done far and loved the way it has turned out to be. I believe Buddha is one example for peace, solitude and patience. All these qualities we need to endure in these tough times. All the pour painting indicates chaos around us, Buddha with his (half) closed eyes in enlightenment indicates to show gratitude towards what life has offered us and be patient.

Mandala Art by Sivanvitha

Mandala Art by Sivanvitha

I painted this Mandala on a 8×10 inch size canvas Panel. Painted with acrylics. Technique I used is cone painting and dotting tools. One stroke rose and feathers.

I am a home maker, Started my career as an artist from the past 1 year. I do paintings of landscapes, flowers, birds, tole painting on multi surfaces.

I stay in Bangalore. In these Pandemic times art is an essential thing as it relaxes our mind and creates peace in our soul while painting. Coming to my Mandala art, it is a Sanskrit word for “circle” is a geometric design that holds a great deal of symbolism in Hindu and Buddhist cultures. … While extraordinary as a standalone work of art, mandalas hold symbolic and meditative meaning also develops concentration. This is basically an Indian art which I felt apt for Indiaart Gallery. I am very much frond of painting and will be posting much and more of my work in future. Thanks for the response.
