Aarti Patel

Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Aarti: “I am Aarti Patel, an artist based in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. I had interest in Arts right from childhood but couldn’t take formal training in it. I have been  working with various media in painting and art over the past few years. What started out as a hobby has become a passion for me.”


What materials do you work with?
Aarti: “For the last few years I have mainly focused on watercolor. I regularly work in an outdoor setting, which we artists call “Plein Air”. I like to challenge myself, by working at the spot rather than working in a studio.”
What subjects do you paint?
Aarti:”My watercolor paintings have been on various subjects, but “Heritage” is something that I am always drawn towards, and living in India’s first Heritage city-Ahmedabad is a matter of pride for me.”
Have you exhibited your artwork?
Aart: “I exhibited my paintings at various solo and group shows. Even during the lockdown in 2020 I tried to be consistent with my work and made paintings each day. “Kalakriti Art Gallery” based in Hyderabad took notice of my paintings and my paintings were a part of an online exhibition held by them.
On a regional platform, my work has been recognised by “Gujarat Lalitkala” over the past 4 consecutive years and “Indian Arts and Crafts Society” in 2018. My work has also been selected by the “International Watercolor Society”,  in Kosovo,Europe 2018, Malaysia 2018, India 2019 and Singapore 2021.
