Art has the ability to evoke a sense of sanctuary for the artist to fearlessly capture and portray deep emotions and thoughts. It is amazing how an idea is cultivated into a visual and given a depth to engage the viewer. As an institute, we try to encourage our students to explore their creativity. It gives us immense joy to see them merge what they have learnt and their innate skills in their works. Taking full advantage of the lockdown is our final year BSc. in Fashion and Apparel Design student, Simran Gupta, who specializes in digital art and creates digital illustrations.
A self-taught artist, she started dabbling in Adobe Illustrator as a means to refine her Graphic Design skills for her course. However, the course of time she used the platform to explore her creativity and found she had a knack to create vector art through the medium. Though Adobe Illustrator is her favourite medium, she has also used the visual platform of Pinterest to key in on inspiration and create more work that resonates with her. She has risen from her initial self-doubts to come out on her own. She is drawn to the work of artist Jeszika Le Vye especially her Peter Pan series and the Renaissance Art due the portrayal of realism that explores themes like philosophy, psychology, science, perspective, illusion etc.
For the full account of her, one can check her Instagram handle _selcouthart. Selcouth means unfamiliar, rare yet marvelous. Simran chose the term as it aligns with her beliefs of being able to induce her work with a voice and bring people together through the power of digital art.
