My Inspiration

“Peace” so un-materialistic in nature but every living being strives to achieve it, in one or other form, I always had a craze to do things differently and this inspired my interest in Mandala Arts.

 

Around Five years of experience and completing a course in Fine Arts BFA from Bharati Kala Kendra, Lucknow in the year 2015, there is no looking back, today I have three hundred creations to my credit and have rich expertise in Conceptual mandala arts. All my creation are hand drawn, hand painted and mostly pen, pencil and canvas works, with some monochromatic Mandalas in the same series with water colour and pen.

How best to share my Knowledge ?

A deep determination and quest to share my Knowledge is the out come of Varaaz Arts, a digital medium to help me connect with the outside world, a platform to share my unique style and understanding on Conceptual Mandal art, with other art aspirants to seek & look into Deeper perspective of Conceptual Mandala arts.

“Varaaz Arts” it is a combination of first two letters from my name and “Raaz” a Hindi word meaning secrets. There are hidden secrets in all my art work. I love displaying my art at Varaaz arts, the best way to post my Conceptual Mandala arts on a bigger scale for the art lovers to take a peek & pick one which touches their heart the most, I also undertake customisation of my Conceptual Mandala arts work, in accordance to your taste, many interior designers and art lovers have showed interest in my art work and I stand to full fill their requirement.

My Role as an Art Therpaist:

As an art therapist, it is my wish, to make it very simple for common person to understand, at many times we come across many instances where knowing & unknowingly we accumulate a lot of thoughts & emotions in our mind & heart, which at a stage evokes a feeling of Anxiety, Fear & Anger which in turn makes us restless and depressed with many unclear answers, a point comes when it burst and you look into some specific medium to let go.

 

This kind of art therapy is best when it is on one to one session, keeping in mind that the need and requirement of every individual is different, the basic training can be taken in a group, but when we move to the next level of Conceptual Mandala art it is good to be on a one to one session to help you bring out your emotions through Conceptual Mandala art.

 

So the very big question is how my art work with the help of Conceptual Mandal art can help you, In simple words I will help you to bring out your emotions on a piece of square paper by making you concentrate in a circle and let you explore your inner conciseness and bring out your emotions in any shape, colour and dimension inside the circle. It can be anger, concern, desire, sorrow, grief, love, joy, passion, pride, agitation, inspiration but your own emotion is what you can see in your own Conceptual Mandala art uniquely your’s. This art is also a great tool for meditation and knowing your self and creating self awareness.

Why I choose Mandala Art ?

I love art and wanted to stand unique and give a strong message through my work and nothing better than Conceptual Mandala arts could have been my choice. the connotation and magnitude seemed completely unique in this category of art. As this form of art deals with human psychology. I found more enthusiastic and positive vibe while Working on my paintings.

My Experiments & Expertise.

There is a lot more than just circles in mandala Art and no limit to one’s own imagination, I have been working on the Geometric circle art for past many years and continue working on the same theme which helps me focusing inward. It is in my nature to gain more knowledge, and curiosity to do something unique, I have started working and digging more details on scared geometry and trying to link it with Conceptual Mandala art, a process which I found meditative and highly meaningful. However, The expression of the happening around me came into my Conceptual Mandala art.

 

My Personal Experience’s and a deep insight into conceptual Mandala Art is the result of what I am today as an Artist & Art Therapist, it is my personal belief that what ever understanding & positive vibes I have achieved and experienced should be passed on to every human being, I take this as a God’s gift and my social responsibility towards humanity and love to share my knowledge on Conceptual Mandala art by training and communicating to others.

Scientific Insight:

Geometric shape’s or circle’s art which has been enriching experience. The main idea is to connect with ones own consciousness and find peace with all the lingering thoughts. It is one of the best way to connect with your self and can reach higher planes of existence and eventually radiate those positive vibes.
