Simple Mohanty

Art has been my passion since childhood. Ever since I can remember, fascinated by the beauties of nature, I would try to capture the azure skies or the play of light and shade on foliage or the many-hued iridescence of flowers on paper. I was initiated into watercolours by an acclaimed local artist, when young, but in subsequent years was largely self-taught. Although watercolours were my first love, due the translucency of the medium, it has been equally exciting to venture into oils and acrylic.
I feel blessed to be able to paint alongside a teaching career. One of the great joys that painting affords is to rediscover beauty in the simplest of things- a facial expression or the folds and patterns on a person's clothing. Indeed the whole world is awash with new colours!
I recently exhibited my paintings in a group show in New Delhi and am working towards putting up more shows. Hope you like my work. Thanks for stopping by.
