Meet Mr. Anurag Mehta a self taught watercolor artist from Udaipur, Rajasthan (India) expressing his love towards Jaipur in Paintings.
Lets read what he have to say about his work and passion!

Few words about Myself

I am a self taught watercolor artist from Udaipur, Rajasthan (India).Watercolor is my passion from early childhood and I do paint from my surroundings.

I have started painting long back when I was in school. Despite of lack of facilities and guidance (since those days internet was not there), I kept on trying my hands in painting various subjects and themes. Due to some circumstances I couldn’t take drawing and painting as a subject in my schooling but the fire within me for painting remained alive and simultaneously with studies in Science stream, I kept painting in watercolors. After introduction with internet this passion got multiplied and I started learning techniques of watercolors seriously.

My Work and Projects

Indian monuments and sculpture has always attracted me and these figures are like feast for my artwork. I have frequently worked on subjects like Amer Fort, Nahargarh Fort, The City Palace of Jaipur, Mehrangarh Fort (Jodhpur) and different location of my home city, Udaipur.

  1. I have got appreciation from Maharana Mewar Cheritable Foundation (MMCF), for my work done on The City palace of Udaipur and my work has been promoted on official portal of Mewar, i.e. eternalmewar.in
  2. I am a member of an art project in Bilbao, SPAIN, i.e. Beta Pectoris and in present year I have participated in a group show in SPAIN.
  3. In 2012 my work on The City palace, Udaipur has been exhibited in CAMEL ART FOUNDATION EXHIBITION at New Delhi.

Why Watercolors?

I have selected watercolor as the medium of work because it’s a challenging medium being toughest in nature. Despite it the spontaneity, freshness and liveliness of this medium always attracted me.

Since last 7 years I am actively working in watercolors and still learning the techniques …it’s a long, rather unending journey.

At last… through my paintings I want to deliver a request to the citizens of India that we should protect our heritage buildings and monuments, since these are our identity, and keep our cities clean.
