A Brief Introduction
A Short History
Hello!, I’m Rakesh Tiwari. I’m 46 and I am an Artist. What started 40 years ago as an Interest in childhood, turned into a Hobby, which later became my Passion. I have pursued my artistic skills with lots of practice and participating in painting competitions throughout my school life. I received coaching in Art and drawing from an early age and was guided by my teachers the proper use of colors and mixing them in different mediums. I have always had a natural talent for Art. I have also studied Art as formal training for drawing, when I was preparing for my Graduate Degree program in Architecture. Drawing was my favourite subject and I was the best at it with my artistic & visualization skills. However, life took a turn and had other plans for me. But I never let Art out of my life. It always came naturally to me and has developed with me over time. Today, I have a Graduate Degree in Commerce from University of Delhi. Alongside my Graduate Degree program, I also completed Honors Diploma course and an Advanced Diploma course in Computer Systems Management. I was the topper in my Post Graduation Degree of MSc in Computer Information Systems, and was awarded a Gold Shield for Outstanding Performance in the degree program. Later on I also pursued 2 more Diplomas and 1 Certification course in Advanced Computer programming and Advanced Network power programming.
Today, Art is my Profession. I have been drawing and painting as long I can remember. I paint with different mediums and each medium has it’s own unique style of results on the canvas or paper. I am an Abstract Artist. Some are using brushes and fingers, and the others using Strings & Ropes. You will find a mix of them in my work.
The Parallel Life
My life’s journey has taken me to places, meeting new people from across the world. I have worked for over 25 years starting as a Lecturer, to Sales Executive, to Business Head, and an Entrepreneur having clients that became good friends over the years as they gradually came to know me and my work. I have travelled many places and experienced the different cultures and had the opportunity to be inspired by the street artists as well as the local museums & Galleries I visited. It has been a motivational journey, encouraged by family, friends, and strangers. My journey of life as an Artist is still young, and I hope I will be able to make an impact in people’s lives with my Art.
The Portfolio Displayed
On this website, I am showcasing my work of Art for you in following forms:
I enjoy this method of painting because it brings out the core imagination, visualization and creative skills in me. The painting has to be finished in my mind before I start working on it.
This method of painting is very relaxing for me. I find it very rejuvenating when I paint these.
This method of painting gives me pleasure of creating something from nothing. I begin with a blank mind, and let my instincts move my hands and create the artwork. I also call them my soul paintings.
