Interview with Preeti Bhatnagar

Was there a pivotal moment when you decided to follow your path as an artist?

Three years ago when I had just moved to a new place with no friends and my partner moved 6000 kilometers away to a different time zone, I found myself in an emotional rollercoaster oscillating between work and large spans of loneliness. That is when I found solace in my small sketchbook and watercolor pans. 

Can you tell us about the process of making your work?

It started off with wanting to document my travels when I got back from a euro trip with friends. And then it became about painting my vision board. Slowly I started experimenting with different subjects and themes. So I would come up with a theme like say ‘profession’ or ‘motion’, then spend an absurd amount of time on websites like Unsplash and pixaby looking for interesting references and something would click and I would paint it.

What piece of your artwork would you like to be remembered for?

I have a lot of favorites from what I have done so far, it’s like asking to choose who is your favorite baby! haha. But I do like pushing myself and challenging my skills in hopes to grow more. I would say I have to learn so much more and grow so much before I can probably say yea, people can remember me for that! I definitely want to also grow in scale, paint larger canvases and murals. 

If you could work within a past art movement, which would it be?

I would definitely want to learn during the Rococo style. The drama, theatricality of the subjects as well as soft subtle colors, and the elegance that seeps through entice me. 

Do you have a favorite photograph or painting, which inspires you?

When I had just started my architectural studies, my parents bought me a few Milind Mulick’s books on perspective and drawing. Years later when I picked them up I realized what great treasures they are. More than any single painting or photograph, these books inspire me a lot to keep painting.

What pressures did you face as a female artist?

I can’t think of any actually. I face more discrimination on-site in my architectural practice which is a heavily male-dominated territory. Clients, contractors, labor all instinctively accept a female interior designer/ stylist or artist rather than an architect. 

Do you interact with the digital world/technology in your work?

My art journey started off on Instagram and continues to grow because of the social media support. So I would say yes I interact with the digital world on a daily basis. We have to keep re-inventing to reach out to more audiences, and probable commission clients. 

What is your greatest indulgence in life?

Scented candles and anything handcrafted. I cannot have enough of either and would happily spend all my money on it. 

Rapid Fire:

  • Which artist of the past would you most like to meet?
    M.C. Escher! His acute understanding of perspective and subtle ways of distorting it to flirt with reality is just mind-boggling. A peek in his brain would be brilliant!
  • How would you define artistic beauty in 140 characters or less?
    Artistic beauty flirts with your emotions, makes you pause in your day, disconnect from your current thoughts, and nudges you to feel something else, even if fleetingly. It’s an escape. 
  • What excites you most about your future?
    The Ikigai in my life would culminate when I am able to create a nurturing space for street dogs and dogs that have been rejected by their families and breeders. Having a space like Leela’s place foundation, Noida, at some point in my future is what excites me the most. And keeps me going. 
  • What show are you currently binging?
    I recently finished Bridgerton, and I joined the party late but I am binging Grey’s anatomy! 
  • If you could ask the following painters one question about them/their work what would it be?
    • Leonardo da Vinci
      Did you ever realize your aeronautical designs and make a lifesize model fly?
    • Vincent van Gogh
      Why did you think your most famous work, The Starry Night, was a failure? What do you feel when you look at it?
    • Pablo Picasso
      Art critics have divided your life’s work into four periods. Before cubism, which painting of yours speaks to you the most?
    • Salvador Dali
      Way too many to even frame right now!!
    • Michelangelo
      How can somebody be brilliant at everything?!
