Two Art Works – Sonjaye Maurya

Enlightenment BY SONJAYE
In Buddhism, enlightenment is when a Buddhist finds the truth about life and stops being
reborn because he has reached Nirvana and once you get to Nirvana you are not born
again. Buddhists believe a person can become enlightened by following the Middle Way.

About the contributor: A childhood filled with drawing and painting, winning Sonjaye Mauryanumerous awards, including prestigious President and Prime Minister of India’s awards, I graduated from Sir J. J. Institute of Applied Art. Bringing imaginations alive on canvas has always been a consummating passion. My constant companion for as long as I, can remember have been art in various forms. Lost in day to day hustle bustle of life this companionship was rekindled three year back and thus started a new journey.

I am a self-taught artist. My work resonates his appreciation of the different aspects of life. Inspired by the vast hues of the universe, my paintings reflect a wide variety of themes and concepts. Use of vibrant colors, stylization and technics make my work interesting and exciting. It breaks away from the monotony of single minded subject or technique. For each painting that I create, I draw motivation from his dreams and thoughts.

I enjoy combining and experimenting with different mediums and technics, be it gouache, water colour, ink, acrylic, crayons, pastels, graphite powder and pencil. Tools of painting is not only limited to brushes but knives, blades, fingers and thumb, etc. is used in innovative ways. Each material, technic used and applied adds its own element of interest to my art and makes it unique in its own way.

For me, pursuing art is an enriching and a fulfilling experience as it allows me to unite the elements of art, nature, artist and the viewer. It has led to self-realisation and to the core of my very existence.

Apart from painting, I enjoy reading, writing, photography and travelling. The travels give me a platform to observe various things endlessly.
