ARTIST’S NOTE :
“My aim is to make the viewer interpret and to become more involved in my imageries. For me, to be successful as an artist, the viewer needs to stand in front of my work and feel something.
To me, my art is about the process of discovery, the synthesis of my personal feelings, colour that inspires me and technique that I use : It's a piece of who I Am.”
- Vinita Dasgupta
