An artist in the making: Kanika Mathur
Kanika says, ‘nature plays an important role in the formation of human behaviour and the development of its persona. The natural things have always fascinated me including mountains, hills, rivers, lakes, flora, fauna, foliage, and many colourful objects. My artwork therefore mainly consists of figurative subjects surrounded by natural elements’.
What she sees around her is what she tries to express in her art work. Two colours are predominant in her work. Firstly, the green - representing vast expanses of nature, and secondly the blue for the limitless sky and oceans. Through her art work, she hopes that people appreciate and respect more of nature in its entirety. She already had a solo exhibition in Greenmark art gallery at Ghaziabad. She also participated in exhibitions at Travancore gallery and India Habitat centre in Delhi.
