Delhi-based artist Antra Srivastava, a graduate with honors in English Literature, has been practicing art for over 25 years, seamlessly blending surrealism with poetic expressions.
As an avid traveler, she infuses diverse experiences into her paintings, often drawing inspiration from nature’s dynamic energy. Her work primarily revolves around inner reflections, reflecting her sensitivity towards observations, beliefs, and a vast range of experiences.
Antra’s compositions are characterized by a harmonious interplay of blues and greens blending poetically with the earthy tones, which grow into space and take their own forms carrying a distinct energy of their own.
Thus, evoking a sense of movement and lending a sense of stability at the same time. She does not treat art, and life in isolation and considers it absolutely necessary to experience life to be able to paint. Her upcoming exhibit at AIFACS Gallery in New Delhi, starting on November 17, explores subjects ranging from sensitive observations to philosophical themes like the Gita, Ramayan, Kabir, scriptures, mythological stories, zodiacs, and seasons.
She seeks to transcend the boundaries of rationality in her exploration of the human psyche, considering surrealism as a transformative and spiritually rich form of visual expression.
In her “Dimension” series, Antra delves into the depths of the human mind, capturing the drama within both the conscious and subconscious realms. The conscious mind contains thoughts, memories, feelings, and wishes that we are aware of, while the subconscious holds hidden feelings, thoughts, urges, and memories.
Antra’s art collections grace the walls of the famous Film Director Anurag Kashyap, actor Anushka Sen, various embassies, VIP chambers, Army Mess, senior government offices, corporates, and private collectors in India and abroad. Her art is also displayed at The Royal Itarana Palace in Alwar. Antra has been sponsored and promoted by eminent International gallerist Mona Youssef in International shows.
