Im Sumit Mehndiratta. Im a self-taught artist and have been working with online art galleries since 2007. Ive been exhibiting my works, both group and solo shows across The UK and India. My main genre of work is abstraction and prominent in most of the works which I do, be it any medium. I love abstraction and the fact that everyone perceives it differently. It brings me pleasure to see how people relate to different shapes and colors, and interpret them differently. It feels as if Ive created something more than I intended to and thats the beauty of it. Ive always been experimental since childhood. Be it drawing, sketching, cooking, painting or photography.
I always liked to do something no one has ever thought of by adding my signature element to the task. And now, even to paint on the canvas, I sometimes create my own painting tools to go with the techniques i think of. For example, the scoop series in my folio is done with a palette knife I constructed out of a wooden-rubber scoop used in screen printing. I usually think of different techniques that I discover by myself, construct my own tools and put the ideas into action. I pick up a theme and make a series of paintings from them.
When the technique gets repetitive, I wait for another inspiration to strike I and move onto the next series. I hope you have a great time browsing my collection.
