Tree of Hope by Sumdima Rai, Medium : Acrylic on canvas, Size : 12″x 16″

Art does not exist just for commercial purpose. It has the power to touch people’s lives, move them to a myriad of emotions, and  connect them to a higher power within themselves. That is why, this art initiative to spread positivity in the times of corona is especially important. 

I am a writer, painter and assistant director in films. 

I have been painting for 5 years. I am a self-taught artist who accidentally picked up a paintbrush during the darkest period of my life. Least to add, painting healed me inside out. And I have never looked back ever since then.

The whole world is in shambles due to corona virus. As the battle rages on in so many different levels, hope is the greatest need of the hour. So, in these uncertain times, I offer this ‘Tree of Hope’ to everyone in the world fighting the battle with corona their own way with a message: “We will  emerge victorious in the end…. Just hang onto every ounce of strength you got and have faith in yourself and nature.”

This is Dr. Swati Bhatavadekar from Mumbai. I am a practising dentist.
Sketching painting is my passion.
About my drawing…I have drawn the colour pencils which I use to draw sketches… This is mainly because 15 th April is the World Art this drawing is dedicated for the Art Day, and also to suggest that I am very grateful to my art materials which help me to shape my ideas on paper.
In these difficult time of lockdown due to Corona, Art is the highest hope, I find.
Some one has said, ‘His art is the Health of the Artist.’ Art work helps to heal the soul.I also believe what Picasso had quoted ‘Art washes away from the soul, the dust of everyday life.’
I am also thankful to India art Gallery to provide such a great platform to showcase the art work of the art lovers , during this lockdown period which helps to seek hope and positivity.
Thank you once again and all the best for your future projects and wishing Happy World Art Day..
