Anannya Chowdhury

Anannya Chowdhury is an EastIndian born, self-taught, award winning artist from Dallas, Texas, USA. She is an artist with a vibrant personality that is reflected in all the art she creates. Her voice and sentiment can be felt and heard in her pieces that are meticulously painted with small brushes and lined in a way that your eyes gravitate to take a closer look at all the fine detail. --------------------------------------------- Artist Statement: I am spiritually inclined and I create a lot of energy from my daily practice of meditation into my creation. Each of the pattern is a combination and collision of vibrant, dynamic colors from iridescent rich colors that I formulate on my unique style of mixing in variations. Each little detail work is done with perfection with blends of rich colors that mesmerizes your eyes and therefore creates a happy feeling in mind. I named my website Artmantras.com. The word mantra has two parts: man - which is the root of the Sanskrit word for mind, and tra - which is the root of the word for instrument. Artmantras is therefore an instrument of the mind which can serve to enter a deep state of creativity and rejuvenation. I am truly thankful that my artwork is direct reflection of my positive energy and vitality that I bring to my canvas during my moments of creation and that, I have motivated people in many ways through my artwork.
