Indoindians Artist Spotlight: Arupa Panigrahi

Arupa with her Artworks at Exhibition

In art you have to go for a long time before you can say “I have done something’’.

Arupa Panigrahi, self-employed realism artist in oil painting on canvas from last twenty years. She has exhibited her paintings in India before moving to Indonesia.  She has served Lal Singh Art Group in India. Her paintings exhibit landscape art and still life with its elements arranged into a coherent composition. Working in oils on canvas, she hopes her paintings give people a feeling of optimisms through the bright fresh color and form, as she uses the rich tones that oils provide to give her paintings a strong physical presence, the resulting work transform the standard notion of realism into a uniquely expressive form.

Living with beautiful objects that pay tribute to the natural world reminds us to slow down and helps us reconnect with nature. As I believe“Nature takes me on a flight of meditation. I get absorbed in its beauty and mystery when I paint. I try to color my vision and I think that realistic painting could be taken in a totally new direction”.  My goal is to inspire those who see my work to look more carefully at the world around them, to discover beauty in unusual nature.
