Art is a diverse range of human activity, and resulting product, that involves
creative or imaginative talent expressive of technical proficiency, beauty,
emotional power, or conceptual ideas.
There is no generally agreed definition of what constitutes art, and its
interpretation has varied greatly throughout history and across cultures.
So when I stepped into the world of exploring art I had similar fondness that

hatching and Mural art, Pattachitra painting and more traditional art forms of
India adding on to the list.

platforms. As an adolescent I started to employ social media applications like
Instagram, pintrest to broaden my grasp over art styles. I opened an
Instagram account and decided to completely consign it towards growth of my
art. So I ushered posting new paintings of different styles like graffiti, pop,
floral, dark and more forms of art and I totally loved experiencing that each
