The Idea behind 'A Flower Child'

Artist's Statement

“I am Neha Khaitan, an Illustrator and a Bharatanatyam (a South Indian Classical Dance form) Dancer. I use dancing and illustrations as a tool for expression. I studied as an apprentice under various Visual and Fine Artists. I was shortlisted for a Summer Residency at School of Visual Arts, NYC, where I completed a program on ‘Illustration and Visual Storytelling for Arts and Industry’.

My work is a product of my ideas on what I read and general experiences that have left an impression on me. I generally like to work with Ink on Paper and Collages. The works of Frida Kahlo, Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Romare Bearden, Hannah Hoch, Amrita Sher-Gil and Rabindranath Tagore intrigue me and I also follow the arts created around the ‘Fauvist’ period – the overt use of colors in the paintings of that period appeals to me.

I am always on the lookout for interactions with different artists. Please feel free to get in touch at should you like to initiate a conversation!”
