About Amarjeet Maan
I am a self-taught Artist, Painting since I was in kindergarten and winning School and College level Competitions regularly. The busy schedule of my education in textile design and professional life took me away from my passion till I was happily re-united with it, a few years after the birth of my Son..
The time I spend planning each painting, from composing the photographs, the lighting, to the time my brush engages the paper and the last touch of paint to complete it, I find myself in a state of absolute happiness and fulfilment.
My subjects usually fall in the categories referred to as Still-life , Landscapes, Urban-scapes and Portraits.
Lighting is the soul of any Painting, it is what reveals to a viewer the perception of each scene by the Painter. I have a special love for play of light as it passes through glass. The birth of colour by refraction, the reflections and shadows that result thereof, resulting in a different perception of various objects fascinate me.
I have been painting in watercolours since the last couple of years and since then there has been no looking back , love the versatility and the pure character of its own. Everyday being the first day of my journey to learn and paint as i continue to evolve with every passing day.
As far as my recent projects go, my paintings have been on display at the various juried International Water-colour Exhibitions at IWS - Delhi, Fabriano, IWS Canada, IWS Hong Kong, IWS Thailand, Albania, UAE, Vietnam, Indonesia
My painting " A window to reflections " has been selected by ‘Splash 20’ for "Creative Compositions" published by Northlight Books.
