No act of growing up in Mathura is ever untouched by the presence of god. Religion was an omnipresent entity. Each day was a festival in praise and servitude to god. Daily processions and ringing bells brought in the days and ended the nights. Interaction with the multitude of faithful gave a sense of a larger existence yet denied the right to an individual identity. Books, studies and sleep became the escape from the time harrowing chants. Closing the window to the outside world, opened the corridor to imagination.

An Interview with the intern.
What is concept art?
Surbhi: The varied possibilities and potential of any given topic is concept art. It is the expansion of the mind to newer things and imagination.
What part of your life involves art?
Surbhi: Art is an integral part of my life. Art is a representation of my own self. It is the medium through which I interact with the world and interpret my own being.
What are the markers of a good concept art?
Surbhi: Good concept art should reach the minds of the audience. The perceptive of the end viewer is paramount to the process of creation. It should be different and yet palpable to the understanding of the observer. Understanding supersedes aesthetics.
What else other than concept art excites you?
Surbhi: Having my own time and talking to myself. 😀 Sharing moments with my close ones. Mysterious movies.
Do you have any final words?
Surbhi: “What you seek is seeking you.” It is a quote by Rumi.
