Ishika Guha’s Creative Process
My creativity makes me complete. I am never myself without my colours. The best of me, when I’m the happiest, is when I am painting and expressing all those intense emotions trapped inside me. Sometimes I paint only for the very reason people want to talk – to communicate! My vibrant colours become my voice when nothing else works.
I do not have any specific art rituals. My art process is very spontaneous, and all my artworks are mainly concentrated on abstract expressive mixed media (oil and acrylic) that are deeply reflective, and they actually fly beyond the borders of my canvases. I love to explore the spontaneity of mixed media, and the whole process is rather playful and adventurous. My passion drives the whole process and I just sit with my colours staring at them until they call out to me- I don’t pick them! Often my subconscious mind takes over, and the process feels very liberating to me. I forget my present and dive into my own world of blissful colours.
I do what I feel like, no plans, no rules whatsoever. This world is so full of rules, so I find my own freedom through my art!
