Democratisation of Art

I met Sujata a fortnight back at Oxford Book Store, Leela Palace. And it was very exciting to know about her life, the transition from a main line engineer to a full time artist. Her works are really impressive and you get even more impressed when you know that she has learnt everything by herself.

So we talked about Art and Art Initiatives and she invited me to her workshop to give a talk on whatever I have learnt on the inter relation of Mathematics and Arts. I'm honored. :)

Take a look at her site and her blog.

Her Motto:
What is art? Is it aesthetic, feelings, painterly skills? There are as many definitions about art as one can find.But for me:"If it touches you heart, it is art..."

Her Workshop Details:
