Look around there is creativity everywhere. From arts to science there is innovation in every field. On World Creativity and Innovation Day here are two budding artistes of city.
Making her mark in coffee painting:
For Sawani Wakharkar coffee painting is like meditation. She started painting using coffee in 2016 and since then there is no looking back for her. An architect by profession, she finds time for her coffee paintings and spreads the art in the name of ‘The creative kona’.
Recalling the best compliment for her paintings, she remembers how everyone at an expo clicked picture with a coffee painting of evergreen film actress Madhubala.
She has been doing a number of things and is an artiste at core. She is a professional singer and also has ventured into charcoal sketching and miniature sketching on the dials of the wrist watches. Sawani has also received a certificate of appreciation from the well-known coffee brand, Nescafé.
Talking to team TLN Sawani has advised youth and olds alike to spend as much time as possible in the lap of arts and creativity.
Creatively carving the Bamboo:
Arun Soman another architect has taken a liking for making creative stuff from Bamboo. Arun has also carved Lord Ganesha during the Ganesh Chaturthi from the Bamboo. A professor at the Priyadarshini College of Architecture, Arun can carve almost everything from Bamboo. In Arun’s view, ‘Bamboo is the way to sustainable way of life. Tribal people have originally made their livelihood on bamboo and as the culture cannot grow without art, bamboo became the root of their identify. Their are nearly 120 hand woven Matt designs developed through generations’. Arun has made designs for office tables and decoratives for houses.
