Anything that makes me feel.

Today’s theme from Grace at Kimmie.gg is “Art

What are some of your favorite pieces and genres? Which artist do you adore?

I am a person who is not restricted in my interests to a specific kind of art or even to a particular artist. I might like an artist a little bit more than another one time and vice versa the other. That is why I am not a big fan of any particular band/singer/painter/photographer/author. I know what I don’t understand though. I don’t understand classical music. I don’t understand modern art. I don’t understand complex poetry. I don’t understand non-fiction or essays.

I enjoy any kind of art, be it calligraphy, sketches, watercolor, hand crafts,ย music, anything that pleases me as soon as I see/hear it. I follow a blogger called LunchSketch, who stopped blogging a long while ago and whose domain is currently expired , and I loved his sketches. It was so real and so full of emotions. I would say I miss his sketches, if I have to pick one artist among the huge set I follow. I like some of Kamal Das’s poems and know them by heart. I like my friend Anita’sย works (her yarn based and her bead works) and Ashwini’s cards (and I wish she would start selling some of those ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) ย I adore LD’s photographs and his stories. I love my friend S’s work and he does my tattoo designs (inside information: I have got my second tattoo design ready…just waiting for the right time) I love street art (and I did a whole series on it with the photographs I took in London). I love my first niece’s drawing attempts and she is getting better and better (my brother is planning to enroll her in a drawing class, which she is quite excited about). I guess if I start thinking a bit more, I will have lot of other people in the list. So let me end with this:

โ€œArt enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.โ€

    Thank you for liking my work enough to mention me, KG! ๐Ÿ˜„
    It’s sad that poems don’t click for me. I kinda envy you for that! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      ๐Ÿ™‚ My pleasure Anita .
      Not all poems though… I like Haiku’s and anything which is simple and easily understandable. If it is complex, then it falls in the same category as abstract art – not interested ๐Ÿ™‚
