"Before expecting a man to be chivalrous, let's not be envious towards each other.
Instead, let's be the prime source of strength for one another."-- agreed, each gracious woman of the Universe.
The Art/Deviation, “Old Street by Leonid Afremov”, is a sublime representation of Old Street, London. The usage of colors, on the architectures, across the street, is awe-inspiring. Most important are the perfect detailing invested, on each object, in an extraordinary and unparalleled fashion. A three-dimensional representation, of a scenic beauty, on a two-dimensional canvas, is truly spectacular. There is a tremendous blend of different colors and shades, which altogether produces a kaleidoscopic effect. There is a beautiful artwork under the street light where objects and a portion of the street are illuminated with imposing brush strokes. The lights oozing out of different window panes adds to the beautification of the light and shade effect, on the street. In this piece of Art, a scenic beauty, of a historic landscape, is captured with perfection, visual clarity, and elegance. This marvelous Artwork is unique in multidimensional aspect.
The Art/Deviation, “Green Dreams by Leonid Afremov”, is an extraordinary expression of solitude, cherished by a nature loving being. The tools and techniques are tremendously applied, in the work, to show an after-rain effect and moist surroundings. Above all, the reflection of the objects (person walking, the lights and the tree trunks) on the moist path are painted in an outstanding manner. The application of different shades of blue, green and red has enriched the overall visual beauty of the masterpiece. This piece of Art is a perfect example of how few objects can be portrayed, on a blank canvas, using brush strokes, to represent a person’s inner desire to be free in nature’s solitude.
The Art/Deviant, “Towards love by Leonid Afremov” is an exceptional expression of emotion. This is an outstanding masterpiece, which depicts the path, to be traveled ahead by two people, bonded with the emotion of platonic love. The visual clarity of the workpiece is extraordinary and clearly, differentiates the minute variations between any two almost similar colors. This, of course, adds an extra life to the masterpiece. The confident brush strokes and usage of the palette knife are a clear reflection of the artist’s state of mind while creating the Art piece The different shades of color (especially blue) adds support to the inner meaning of the workpiece; where two dreamers take a leap of faith, together, towards life.

My Views on Creativity:

A person needs to tag herself/himself as a free being to be identified as creative’.

I realized that an intense must burn within, which will nurture the creative instinct, residing inside. One cannot classify the kindof pain, that must occur in a human life to ignite creativity. Generally, we declare ourselves to be in pain when, things we thrive for, do not occur to us, for the time being, or ever. Thereby, an emptiness happens to chase us and we try to get rid of it. We try to come out of the uncertainty. Maybe, in such suffocating situation, we end up finding a free world where nothing really matters.

We mind being judged by others, but somewhere, in our subconscious mind, we constantly judge and upgrade ourselves. Somehow, with our constant process of judgment and up gradation, we want to place ourselves in a better place, of our lives. We develop our self-belief, self- confidence and leap for something better. We dedicatedly improve or upgrade ourselves to be one of the deserving beings; for a better life. In short, we wish for something, which we believe is best for us. But sometimes, our dreams and expectations become very expensive. Hence, we and the people who support us (parents, friends, and well-wishers), fail to afford it at the right time. Maybe, then comes a time, when we fail to reach our point of satisfaction, in life. This situation becomes unacceptable and creates a depression all around us. We hover around the darkness to find a solution, to fix our situation.

Creativity is a refreshment in utmost dark phases of life and, for me, it works like a medication. I wonder, how a person can be creative when contented! There must be an emptiness present behind every creation. Maybe, in few cases, there had been a dark phase, in the past, which inspires a creator. In the later case, a person should not let go of her/his past, to preserve the creative bone, within.

Every creative person needs to live in a free world where, they care about nothing, except the thing that keeps them alive; their creation. There arises a time when it becomes very difficult to understand them since they prefer solidarityThey love to be with people, but not always. Maybe, under certain circumstances, the love their lives become the deepest source of inspiration for which, they become over expressive. The saddest part comes when they are misjudged. Anyhow, someone should know that, a creative person is usually soft-hearted; even though exceptions always remain. This is my observation and nothing else. I am not claiming to be creative but I definitely wish to reach the extreme end of the free world, one day, through my negligible capabilities, which needs up gradation of course.



AratrikaRay's Profile Picture
Aratrika Ray
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
I am Aratrika. I am 25 years old. I am from India.
I am not a professional artist but Art is my biggest inspiration. I draw, sketch, paint, create almost every day. I am a software engineer by profession.
No matter where life takes me to, I will never stop creating. My parents are my biggest support as they always insist me to carry out and improve my creativity. I started learning basic drawing skills, from my Art tutors, at home, when I was six years old. Due to change in residency, I had to discontinue their classes. I started learning Fine Arts and Painting from my teacher, Mr. Pranab Mallick who is an artist by profession. I did Diploma in the same domain, from Pracheen Kala Kendra (State Governments Universities and Education Boards). Even after completing five years of routine Art course and training, somewhere I am not done with painting. In my spare time, I devote myself to create something new. I am very much keen towards Abstract Art and Conceptual Art. But I love and appreciate every form of creation.

Deviant Art is a place where I first got to share my ideas and creations. My friend, Saoumita, first introduced me to this website for which I will always be thankful.

I hope, I can create better works in future and contribute much to the Deviant Gallery.

Thank you so much for the gracious comments, Aratrika! :clap::bow::D

I wish you the best along with many wonderful artist friends and fun relationships with people from all over the world. Be proud of your art; it is a little bit of your being. It deserves to be seen.

I must admit I am not familiar with art from the Indian subcontinent or the Himalayas and mountain regions. Last week, I viewed a documentary on TV about the massive earthquake in Nepal new Mt. Everest and Kathmandu. They were predicting an even bigger quake that would affect New Delhi and further in the reasonably near future. are you located near to those regions? 
AratrikaRay Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you so much for your good wishes. Hug 
Yes, the earthquake you wrote about occurred last year in Nepal. It was a huge destruction of the country and its capital. There is an earthquake prone region(belt) that runs from north of India to the northeastern parts. I am from the eastern part of India. I live in Kolkata. Here, we faced mild tremors (around 5 in the Richter scale), 3 or 4 times, around the same time of the disaster in Nepal. Now it is fine, but not sure whether it will reoccur.  No, I disagree! 

Art in India and the Himalayan mountain regions are quite traditional (classical) in nature. If you search few monumental architectures, on the internet, you will find out the exact nature of art that is prevailing in here.
You may search for the architectural monuments in Delhi, Agra, Rajasthan, built during the Mughal rule, back in 17th century.
In the Deccan (south of India), monuments were constructed in maximum number during the rule of Tipu Sultan. 
I am quite motivated by the patterns done on stones, the carvings on the monuments. 
Apart from architectural art, there are many well-known traditional artists who carry out abstract paintings, themed paintings (using oil on canvas), etc.
Now all forms of artistry are practiced. Even there are many private institutions teaching digital art, multimedia, etc. I don't have much knowledge about digital art.
But I have plans to take basic training one day.:happybounce: La la la la  
By the way, I  wrote a long boring note on Indian Art. Wink/Razz 

I didn't ask from which part of US are you from. I wish to visit the US someday. :happybounce: 
It is a nice place to be. Where do you live in the US?
