ASTHA TIWARI’S PAINTINGS
Art is not what you see, but what you make others see- Edgar Degas
“I am always inspired by these words of renowned artist Edgar Degas. I have opted Fine Arts as my subject for my graduation at Banaras Hindu University (BHU), Varanasi. Currently I am pursuing painting from the Department of Visual Arts,” says young artist, Astha Tiwari from Varanasi.
“Being an art student, I explored my keen interest in ‘miniature’ works , lately I have been working on Composition of Insects, details and the lively experience that challenges me to keep going more for perfection.
I believe in authenticity; colours and papers are all self- made by the handmade techniques.
So far I have tried portraits, compositions, sketches, paintings in different mediums …. I still crave for more,” says the young artist, Astha Tiwari.
She has attended the following workshops.
GADKARI – a miniature painting workshop
Water, Plant and Sunlight – Performance art workshop mentored by German artist Lena Mallann
‘Kashi Ke rang vyasi ke risang’ workshop
‘Urban sketchers’ workshop
