Inspiration

Shweta developed a deep affinity with traditional Indian painting methods and techniques after learning from the living Masters of Indian Painting. There are very few living Masters of traditional Indian painting in the whole of India, and Shweta is forever grateful for the time she got to spend with them. They shared their profound knowledge with her, as well as practical skills. These traditional techniques are Shweta’s main inspiration and an integral part of her practice.

Shweta’s love for simple, beautiful things and nature also inspires her artworks. She adheres to Paul Smith’s ethos, “You can find inspiration in everything”.

Creation

In India, Shweta learned how to make the pigments and paper that she works with to this day. She learned how to burnish mineral, earth, organic and alchemical pigments and the skills of delicate brushwork. Greatly inspired, Shweta set about employing these ancient methods to create contemporary, original artworks.

After creating these vibrant, attractive paintings, Shweta experimented with digitally printing her artworks onto fabric. The results were stunning. Shweta’s focus now shifted to bringing these traditional Indian methods into our homes, in her signature textile-based products and art prints.
