Remember how we use to get messed up badly in our childhood with watercolors? We would start painting on the canvas but end up painting on our face and attire. Gone are those merry days but for someone, those watercolors run in veins.
Anurag Mehta, a resident of the beautiful City of Lakes, is a self-taught watercolor artist who inspires from monuments and monumental landscapes and replicates them on his canvas with watercolors. Started experimenting with watercolor in childhood, Anurag considers his art as his passion.
Since access to the internet or any other professional artist help was not possible for him in his school days, he started practicing on his own. Though his surrounding always inspired him to draw but Indian sculptures, monuments, and other heritage properties were something that captivated him always. Also, due to certain circumstances, he could not take art as his subject and settled for science stream, but the spark in him to capture picturesque monuments on his canvas kept him motivated.
Anurag chose watercolors as his forte for he believes that painting with them is no less than a challenging task. Since 7 years, he is actively working in watercolors and still learning the techniques.
He is proudly working on the theme of The City Palace Complex and Heritage of Udaipur, especially promoted by MMCF through official portal i.e.ETERNALMEWAR.IN. He has been a part of 2015 International Watercolor Society Biennale Exhibition (New Delhi), 2015 Group Show organized by BETA PECTORIS ART PROJECT, BILBAO (SPAIN), 2012 Camel Art Foundation (North Zone) EXHIBITION ( New Delhi),2009 West Zone Cultural Center, Udaipur, etc.
He also runs a blog and holds the admin right of his page on Facebook. The internet has aided him in selling his works to Indian as well as foreign collectors.
Thalagiri.com not only welcomes him to the club but also expresses a sincere gratitude to Anurag for stating through his watercolors the significance of preserving the rich heritage of India.
