Speaking about the event held in Delhi, where she displayed 3 paintings, Krupa Shah says, “Colors have a different connectivity with human beings like green connects with nature and so on. The event was organized by a very dear friend Anjana Kuthalia and attended by celebs like Shekar Suman, Shalini Kochar and many others. It was a one day event aptly called Lotus Leela and portrayed successful women from different walks of life. I was really happy and privileged to be part of this path-breaking function. There was a fashion show and I walked the ramp while my paintings were on display.”
There were three specially selected paintings on display at the event in Delhi – all acrylic color on canvas. When asked why she prefers acrylic on canvas, she says, canvas has better durability. “I like to work with the best. Acrylic color gives an artist a lot of freedom.”
Krupa Shah’s paintings have traveled around the globe and she has participated in shows and combined exhibitions at places like Dubai, Chicago, Delhi, Portugal, Lisbon, Pune, Calcutta, Mumbai.
Born and brought up in Mumbai, Krupa Shah has been artistically inclined since she was a little girl. She remembers being drawn towards color and canvas and discovering her own individual style as a teenager. However, it was recently – a few years ago, that she re-discovered her inborn passion for art in a way that she couldn’t look back. From a devoted mother to a dedicated artist, Krupa essays many roles in her life and she fulfills them all dutifully, she says.
Krupa’s knowledge and understanding about art comes from the real world and the experiences she has lived and learned from. Fearlessly independent, she believes that every girl and woman has a right to follow their true calling and her calling was in the field of art.. When she picks up the brush, her ideas translate into paintings almost instantly. Krupa Shah is a graduate in Arts from the Mumbai University.
She works with acrylic on canvas, she tells IndiaNewsNetwork.IN She says her strokes on canvas are influenced by her emotions. “I paint the moments I have lived . she said, adding that her works are mostly abstract and are open to different interpretations by viewers.
