I got my BFA from the International University, Visva-Bharati at Shantiniketan in India founded by the poet, writer, painter, musician, educationist, philosopher, Nobel Laureate (Literature) Rabindranath Tagore. The education at this unique university, during my formative years as an artist, have had a profound influence on my life, mind and my creative abilities.

After moving to USA, I finished my MFA from Bowling Green State University with a major in Fibers. With this I have had the opportunity to explore more avenues and embrace new techniques and materials and integrate them with my knowledge from India.

 

Statement

 

I believe a work of art bears the stamp of individuality and the national bearing of its creator when it springs from inner self and is devoid of any pretensions. Being from India, a country with an extremely rich heritage of Art and Culture, I have always had a deep-rooted attachment to traditional art forms of India and owe some of my stylization to the captivating traditional patterns and the rich array of colors. Adapting to Western styles and techniques, combining them with my lifelong fascination for ethnic arts around the world, have all been a melting pot for me to create a multicultural ‘canvas’.

The education at this unique university, during my formative years as an artist, have had a profound influence on my life, mind and my creative abilities. In my everyday life, my escape, my retreat, is my creative power of Art.

 

My work is indigenous to my inner self, and is a place of solitude, passion and contemplation for me. The final offering is the culmination of a series of wordless conversations between me and my artwork. The subject matter of my work is drawn from my own life experiences, trips, thoughts and surroundings. My art is like a journey for me through the passage of time honored techniques, traditions and influences in an endeavor to produce art for everyone to appreciate. I feel like my journey has just begun and I have a long way to go…

    All the works are exquisite ,the textural variation created due the overlapping stitched pieces make the whole body of the work vibrating. Fibres and textile materials were chosen very carefully and applied in such a way that apart from creating ornamental and structural designs an animated biological senses is evolved of them.Conceiving the pattern of assimilation of different textile pieces of various colours and textures itself is unique,God bless you Baisali,deliver more of these to prove your mettle to the world – love
