Young artist's work focuses on peace, positivity and freedom from constraints, writes Debarati S Sen
She is a young graduate, for whom art has been a hobby that she has indulged in since childhood, and now Pragya Murarka is all set to unveil 20 paintings that she has done in the past-one-and-a-half years. Ask why she came up with a title like Beyond Me for her debut exhibition and pat comes her reply, "My grandfather suggested it and also because this exhibition is a combination of many things I want to talk about and portray. There are some paintings about positivity, some about peace of mind, a few about nature's fury, some about confinement and some about freedom."
Pragya's works have that distinct amateurish feel to them yet have a freshness with the bright bursts of colour that she has used liberally in her oils and acrylics. "I love using these basic colours because I feel that it gives a lot more depth to my works," she says.
The exhibition will be on from June 29 to July 2, from 11 am to 7 pm at the Artists' Centre, Ador House, 6 K. Dubhash Marg, Kala Ghoda, Mumbai
