More about her
Aishwarya Singal says her idol is Monet, the French impressionist. “The subjects in his paintings are so simple and familiar that one simply feels reassured looking at them. It is the same feeling I want people to have once they look at my art — to feel reassured in such an agitated world,” she says. Her first exhibition, Mysticism in Nature, opened on Monday in association with Arushi Arts. It features twelve paintings that Singal has been working on for the past five years and is currently on at the Royal China Restaurant in Nehru Place.
