Bhavani is also a Neuro linguistic programmer and an artist too, “I am a B Tech graduate with post graduation in Risk Management. I have been interested in painting since childhood. I used to do painting on canvas. I have practiced art for six years. My parents encouraged me a lot.
While doing job I used to paint during the break time. My friends started asking me to try on canvas. When I started learning, people suggested me names of a few institutes to learn some tips, where I learned some techniques for art.”
“It took me eight hours to do these paintings, I did this to test my strength, I never thought of displaying my work in the form of an exhibition. But many supported me to do the show,” She adds.
About her work she explains, “During my childhood I used to go for Kathak classes and those beats inspired me to do my first painting ‘Ganesha’. Then I did four paintings continuously. I found it interesting.
Then I thought of doing 24 paintings in 24 hours, but after 12 paintings I gave up. Because of pain in my shoulders, I couldn’t even move my hand. But after taking a break I started again and I completed 24 paintings within eight hours and I didn’t even realise until I finished.”
