Dipika Sahu Born and brought up in Sivasagar, Assam. These days she lives in Delhi. She did schooling from Sivasagar, Assam and Graduation and Post Graduation in Commerce from the University of Delhi. She is the younger one in the family of four and currently teaching at Delhi University as a Guest Assistant Professor.
She was an admirer of art since her childhood but she took some time to know the artist within. But once she started, now it’s tough for viewers to put the eyes off from her paintings and artwork. Our team interviewed her and asked about her journey of colors. So let’s have a trip to the colorful world of Dipika Sahu.
“It is a very recent development. I started drawing for a year. I pursue it as a hobby which has turned into passion off let. I get very fascinated by the way other artists create things and decided to try something from my end. I always admired art but never tried myself.
It all started when I was working in Copal Amba, Gurgaon. There was an art competition organized by our company and I decided to draw something. Though I could not make it to the first three positions, I got a consolation prize for my art and I was very happy about that. And that was for the first time I realized that I should devote my free time in drawing.
I love to see what other artist has to offer. I surf Pinterest a lot and gets inspired by others work and finally decided to implement it myself, and that’s how I started drawing. And use to draw whenever I get time.
It took a pause after a few paintings and then with my friend’s motivation and encouragement I started it again a couple of months ago and started posting my artwork on Instagram.
My inspiration is not limited to a particular person; rather my inspirations are the artists whose work appeals my eyes, heart and soul! I become stunned by the way they create things. I really appreciate and respect those artists.
I love intricate art a lot and very fond of Mandalas and Zentangleart. But I do not stick to a particular form of art. I like experimenting with new art forms. I love folk art and started discovering the art and culture of different states and countries. I also love making crafts and origami and have tried a few paper cutting art as well. I also love making rangolis during Diwali.”
When we asked about why she uses some specific colors in her paintings she said, “Black color attracts me a lot, so most of my artwork is in black and white, although I have started putting colors to my work off let. Art has become a therapy for me and it works as a stress-buster! I also enjoy other forms of art like singing, dancing and photography!”
“Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to thank my family members and my friends Rohini, Abhishek and Paras (of course there are other friends as well, but these three deserves special mention) for their constant support and encouragement. Their praises and appreciation keep me going. Thank you guys!”
