ABOUT ARTIST PRIYA YABALURI
Art is my passion. Being an artist for more than 25 yrs. and choosing it as a profession in spite of my varied background ,I could find back the space within me which I had hidden for some time since my childhood .The great thing about being an artist is that you are your own resident expert on your work, you know and study more about your technique, background, or subject matter and your perspective over the period of time. This makes it possible to experience the ideaand thoughts of social-political relevance and visions of the future of art. It gives me a fascinating insight into my own thinking, my vision and then its practice. I love to experiment with the space and the simple objects and subjects often from the nature on my canvas. The result being or becoming inspired and creative like some of the most important artists of our time in the form of poetry, writing, and works of art.
Traditionally, science is not seen as a creative field and often uses facts to verify the information often unearthed through research. Perhaps my background in science (BSC) and later Interior designing (PGDID) from Hyderabad makes me think on the whole. It adds up to my experience, the logic and the illusion to become my painting. Nature being the primary resource to my creativity. Initially as a child I would sketch and paint everything I felt was beautiful. Even now I do the same ?but knowledge made the basics and the concepts stronger. I was always drawn towards fine arts. I also love to write poetry and compose music in my leisure. In the last 20 years I have participated in over 35 group and solo Art shows of Paintings in India and Abroad. have exhibited in UK, Germany, StPetersburg,Moscow,France,London,Paris,Dubai abroad and Mumbai,New-Delhi,Hyderabad,Guwahati,Pune in India. I still need to explore more geographically and learn more about art and culture globally. Art is evergreen. Art sets you free.
I think science is inherently creative. As an Artist I feel you start thinking in a perspective, to be able to discover something new that other people have not discovered already. You feel like the ideas and the concepts that you have acquired in one way or the other, are tools that could empower you to do more than you could do. Later in the year 2015 I started my own brand called:” Art for Awareness” under which I continue to write, publish Art magazines, books and conduct Art shows.
Our creativity often stems from the exposure to a massive variety of stimuli. It has to be invigorating enough that we go against our very human tendency to fall into a set pattern. The idea that we are not necessarily going to be doing ground-breaking things. The time is meant to comfort the fact that we learn from our failures, our experiments and experiences of life and then being able to break boundaries with or without them. My vision is to see art inspiring, creating awareness and explaining the world that the artist is one of the creators and their creativity is reflection of the beauty and facts that coexist with us and within us. An Artist has the ability to create and promote the harmony beyond cultural or social differences.
An Artist spending most of the time in solitude is mostly introvert or unable to socialize often with the kind of work they do. In these times and age I feel internet is a boon and social websites are like your extra limbs enabling you to feel, walk, share and acknowledge the creativity going in and around you .Facebook and Instagram and many more have revolutionized the world of art.Sitting inside your home or studio you can enrol art exhibitions, shows and know what’s happening .
