A self-taught artist, Sumit Mehndiratta has pursued Master of Science in international fashion marketing from Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. He has worked with online art galleries and exhibited his works, both group and solo shows across the UK, UAE, Japan, China and India. He has also worked on several projects in the US, UK and UAE. Sumit enjoys making artworks from different mediums that please the mind and soul of the individual. Describing his style of work, the Delhi-based artist avers, “My main genre of work is nature and abstraction, which is prominent in most of the works. I love abstraction and the fact that everyone perceives it differently. It brings me pleasure to see how people relate to different shapes and colours, and interpret them differently.” Sumit works aren't restricted to one style or medium of work. His works range from generic mediums such as canvas and paper to digital art, mixed media, wall sculptures and photography. Sumit claims to have been experimental since childhood. Be it drawing, sketching, cooking, painting or photography, he always liked to do something no one has ever thought of, by adding his signature element to the task. To achieve this, Sumit creates his own painting tools to go with the techniques he thinks of. “I usually discover different techniques to paint and construct my own tools to put the ideas into action. I pick up a theme and make a series of paintings on them. When the technique gets repetitive, I wait for another inspiration to strike, and I move onto the next series,” professes Sumit. He does not have any ‘patented style’ as he terms it to be mere repetition and limits an artist’s creativity. Sumit strives to portray feelings of happiness, calmness, serenity, vibrancy and energy through his works that coalesce motifs, psychedelic patterns and elements of nature in a soothing colour palette. Well, he terms it to be the art of turning liquid paint with the help of some brushes
ABOUT SHOP OWNER
Hello. I'm Sumit Mehndiratta. I'm a self-taught artist and have been working with online art galleries since 2007. I've been exhibiting my works, both group and solo shows across The UK and India. My main genre of work is abstraction and prominent in most of the works which I do, be it any medium. I love abstraction and the fact that everyone perceives it differently. It brings me pleasure to see how people relate to different shapes and colors, and interpret them differently. It feels as if I've created something more than I intended to and that's the beauty of it. I've always been experimental since childhood. Be it drawing, sketching, cooking, painting or photography. I always liked to do something no one has ever thought of by adding my signature element to the task. And now, even to paint on the canvas, I sometimes create my own painting tools to go with the techniques i think of. For example, the scoop series in my folio is done with a palette knife I constructed out of a wooden-rubber scoop used in screen printing.
