Why 'A Flower Child'? Watch this short.
“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. If any tool is to be used to its best potential it needs to be honed and nurtured well. This is where I am currently, experimenting and learning.
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.
At the moment, the one thing I really I look forward to is the Summer Residency Program on Visual Arts, for which my application got through, at the School of Visual Arts, New York City!
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!”
