ASTHA SAINI

 

Artist Biography

Astha is a self-taught San Diego based artist. Her primary medium is Ink. Astha finds clarity, elegance and unforgiving in her work. Her technique is visually striking as she combines different medium with words and ink. All ink work is done as a freehand drawing.

Artist Statement

Parallel lines are subtle, because they transform my experiences, and ignite them. My art encapsulates this very emotion as I write to draw, and give meaning to it. Every line that follows, evolves from a connected thought and becomes a story as it metamorphoses into the unknown. Ink is my primary medium. I find its clarity not only elegant but also unforgiving. The play of simple, yet strong composition and negative spaces in my art work, is definitive of who I am and becoming.
