I am Samir Chavan, a biotechnologist by profession but also ‘an artist at heart’. I would define myself as a traveller on a sojourn, seeking an exploration of my destination called ‘Art’. As an artist by hobby, neither do I specialize in any specific medium nor I have transcended to develop my own style.
A few years back I came across a book titled “Expression in Watercolour” by Mr. Milind Mullick and was immensely impressed with his style and definition. From that day onwards, I just fell in love with this medium of transparency that has its own mood. My inclination towards ‘watercolours’ was so strong that by God’s grace I happened to meet my master Mr. Milind Mullick. He was glad enough to make me his student which is helping me gain an in-depth understanding of the principles of ‘watercolours’.
I enjoy painting landscapes, as portraying nature on a handmade paper with a bunch of manmade colours & brushes challenges me a lot. It also helps me to cleanse my soul during the process.
Pablo Picasso has aptly said:
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life”.
I am an amateur in this art journey, but after reading about many great artists, I have understood that they have dedicated their lives to explore the art galaxy till their last breath. Personally, I too feel the same and intend to plunge into the depths and the inner most core of art.
Lastly, I would like to mention that an ‘art seeker’ or an ‘art lover’ who really understands the value of art is of utmost importance. Such divine souls help and motivate amateur artists like me, to continue doing what he loves to in this materialistic world.
On an ending note, being an artist by hobby, I would like to unfold my feelings through the great Pablo Picasso’s quote:
Never permit a dichotomy to rule your Life; a dichotomy in which you hate what you do so you can have pleasure in your spare time. Look for a situation in which your work will give you as much happiness as your spare time.
