Prerna Kapoor – Contemporary Fine Artist.
India-born, Japanese artist, now living and working in Colorado, USA
I consider myself a global citizen. At the age of 15, I was awarded an art scholarship to study Fine Arts in Edinburgh, Scotland. It introduced me to my passion and calling. From my wonderful teacher Mrs. Franchesca Shaw, I firmed in my resolve to learn and explore my love for colors further. It is always someone’s belief and encouragement that turns into motivation, as happened with me. From being a Japanese interpreter and Translator to a full-fledged devoted to art painter, the journey has had its moments of vacillation as well. From enrolling for further studies in art school, as also rediscovering my Indian roots, I even had a great opportunity to showcase my work in some leading art galleries of New Delhi while completing my advanced Diploma simultaneously. It enriched my color palette as well as adding to my repertoire.
Experiencing such diverse cultures has had a unique influence on the little nuances of my thought process, invariably finding its way onto my canvasses through my brushes and colors. I have been extremely blessed that I could learn and amalgamate all these influences in my work from the Japanese Sumi art, where each stroke is expressive and speaks about the distinctly meditative culture, to the Indian which is a riot of colors and textures in a traditional way, to the other nuances of Scotland and Singapore where I lived a while, it’s an ever-evolving vocabulary.
Nature in all its splendor and glory is an immense inspiration for my landscapes. The sight remains in my psyche till I have translated it to my canvas forever. My abstract paintings are an endeavor to explore the hitherto unknown realms of my own complex consciousness. Happy to be getting opportunities to exhibit my work in various shows, it is also an inspiration to go on walking on this colorful inward journey that finds outward expression and audience.
