The artist wishes to convey the image of a gentle and calm bindi sporting Indian Mother through this artwork. She is tender forgiving. However, her humane visage is composed of hard materials like brass, MDF, and stone as a testament to the strength and resilience of her character.
Naman Mahipal was born in New Delhi in 1993. He is a graduate in Multimedia and Animation from Apeejay Stya University. He uses a variety of mediums for his art, including oils, charcoal pencils, and sculptures made out of wood and steel.
At just 27 years, his works have already been showcased in Metropolitan Museum, New York and other venues in Dubai, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
Closer to home, he has exhibited at the India Art Festival, ID Design, India Habitat Centre, Modern Art Gallery, among other venues. He is also associated with the NGO, Kushii Foundation.
Naman suffers from congenital hearing impairment. Consequently, takes refuge in art as a form of expression. Art not only assists others in experiencing the world from his perspective, but also helps him overcome the void created by his condition.
