Winning an award of this nature also motivates me to work harder and explore several aspects of my personality as an artist that have not come to the forefront yet.”
Born in Jamshedpur, and raised in Kanpur, Swati had an inclination towards creative arts from a very young age. Art, she believes, is a gift to her from her parents Partha Sarathi Roy Chowdhury and Parna Roy Chowdhury. Right from her childhood days in Kanpur, she managed to strike a balance between studies and art. After graduating in Science and marriage, Swati decided to pursue a full-time career as an artist from her abode in Kolkata, where in she secured a Diploma in fine arts and also improvised her artistic skills through workshops in Singapore and Italy and Spain from renowned artists. “I wouldn’t have managed to do all this without the support of my family. They not only believed in my dreams but also helped me hone my skills and become a better artist with time. I feel every artist develops their distinctive style with time. With my seascapes and landscape paintings, I try to evoke a sense of visual grandeur. I use contrasting colors, textures and styles. I think I have found my voice as an artist but I want to experiment with several more ideas and styles in both landscapes and figurative art. I have always been very curious about art and that has helped me move forward in this direction”, says Swati.
Presently, her artworks are on display in an ongoing exhibition at Ikonica Gallery, Milan Italy. The exhibition started on 3th and will continue until 13th of this month.
Swati’s work has also been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums around the world including India, Norway, South Korea, Italy, Switzerland, Vatican Chancellery Palace, New York and Maldives. By winning several prestigious awards and getting her work showcased in some of the most prestigious exhibitions across the world on her own merit, Swati has proved that she is an Indian artist whose work caters to a global audience.
