Artist Alpa Palkhiwala

Joined Craft Tatva: February 2022

The freedom to express myself through my artworks had always kept me exhilarated and motivated me to keep creating more absorbing artworks. Recently my work is inspired from spiritual art. I have tried to give major significance to the Padmasana form with Jainism and Meditation. Meditation is the best way of soul realisation. Padmasana is a type of yoga introduced in ancient India. Padmasana is one of the best asanas in yoga. Pairing the mind, body and breath together gives our soul energy and peace. I have illuminated this energy in the artworks with my style. The idol of Jain God is structured in Padmasana form. I have blended the elements of Jainism with Padmasana and studied Jain Manuscript to make these paintings. In the artworks, I have painted canvas cloth using ink acrylic and graphite with a technique which gives the effect of etching. It looks like an etching print which I have created by hand. I have worked on different mediums like canvas, handmade paper and untextured canvas cloth. My paintings are around the titles Siddhachal, Girnar, Om-the eternal, the vision invisible, Bliss of Solitude and Conquer Yourself.

Focus Areas: Nature, Landscape, etc.
