Ludhiana, January 15
Having received accolades worldwide for her paintings, Ludhiana-based artist Anu Puri has decided to showcase her masterpieces locally at a one-day exhibition being held at Hotel Park Plaza on Saturday.
In addition to this, Anu Puri has also been chosen and is one of the 250 artists to showcase her painting at Bindaas Artist Group, India’s prominent online artist platform. Showcasing the paintings during a virtual exhibition was all together different experience for her, she said.
“I started my artistic journey in my college days where I studied fine arts as my major subject. Being constantly intrigued by Art History, I became a regular visitor to my campus library where I got enamoured with the works of great masters such as Titian, Raphael and many more. I learned a lot by representing their works and developed a strong relationship with Art,” she said.
After being busy as a housewife and a mother, she surrendered to her love for art and quickly realised that she felt happiest and most fulfilled while painting. Deeply inspired by nature, she started making floral paintings that gave a meditative experience both to the artist and the viewers.
“The lockdown gave me another opportunity to fulfil my love for the painting as I got ample time to draw my heart out on the canvas,” she said.
She finds divine beauty in the simplest of flowers and makes a humble effort to immortalise their beauty on her canvas.
Her technique includes making many layers of colour in controlled movements that help her create unconventional style of a blend of realistic and impressionistic art.
She has participated in many exhibitions in Ludhiana, Delhi, Mumbai and Dubai. Currently, she is learning online from UK based Natalie Richy of Old Masters Academy.
