Profile of Aruna Tewari- Artist


Aruna Tewari, born on November 06, 1974 in Kanpur (Uttar Pradesh), always had her heart in sketching and paintings, yet somehow she could not pursue her interest along with her studies. Providentially, after marriage she found a ‘Mentor’ in her husband and under his aegis, she took her interest in Arts sincerely and embarked on her mission by painting at her home in the majestic environment of Himachal Pradesh. After working for some time as self taught artist, she became aware of the necessity of some formal education to completely appreciate and understand the nuances of Arts.

Accordingly, she joined ‘Delhi Collage of Art’, Safdurjung Enclave, New Delhi where she successfully completed two years Diploma Course and was adjudged as the best student. Having received critical acclaim for her works in various group exhibitions she decided to hold her Maiden Solo Show entitled “Mesmerising Reverberations of love” in April, 2013 at Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi. Her show was highly successful and her works were appreciated by one and all.

She also held her solo painting Exhibition at Taj Palace, New Delhi, in April this year. Encouraging reviews at Taj Palace inspired and motivated her to paint a series of paintings entitled “Dimensions of Love” that was recently show-cased at the Visual Arts Gallery, India Habitat Centre, New Delhi from July 11-15, 2014. This show was also very successful and received critical acclaim by the viewers including art lovers especially from the women who readily correlated themselves with the emotions and figures in her works.

As an Artist, Aruna pours her heart and soul out on the canvas. All her paintings copiously articulate about various shades of emotions that are experienced by a woman at one stage or the other during the course of her life.

Aruna’s paintings are communicative and expressive yet while gazing at them one can make her own interpretations and relish the beauty & spirituality that comes alive in her works. Woman is the focal point in all her paintings as she firmly believes that women are not only the best in the understanding of life but they are also embodiment of love and sacrifice.
