India
I was born and raised in New-Delhi;I started drawing the day I was able to wield a pencil (I think was around 3) , art has been my passion ever since.
When my formal schooling days were over (I was very glad it was over), I gave the entrance exam to Sir J.J school of arts, but I decided not to join there as I was unsure if I would actually like art school. So to be on the safer side, I decided to join Delhi College of Art (because it was closer to home), where I was put in the waiting list after the entrance exam (lmao!). The admission was successful but I dropped out by choice in the 2nd week itself. Personally, I didn’t like the way they taught and it was against the style which I have practiced all my life and also it was against my principles and understanding of art. I was convinced that Art-Schools were not meant for me. After I quit art school I tried studying law because my father (who is a Senior Advocate) asked me to give it a shot, in case I liked it. But then again I dropped out around the end of the first semester when I realized that law wasn’t my cup of tea either.In my honest opinion there is nothing great in earning a graduation just for the sake of appeasing the society and I feel knowledge has very little to do with owning a college degree.

I have interest in Indian Mythology because I feel there is a lot that can be learned from these beautiful stories of gods and heroes and I have faith that theses stories have some truth behind them. I paint characters and events from epics like the Ramayana and Mahabharata and other ancient scriptures such as the Vedas.One might mistake to be a religious Hindu but to be honest I don't follow any one religion be it Hinduism,Islam,Christianity,Buddhism or any other religion,but again I am not an atheist or an agnostic either, at best one can call me a free thinker who tries to learn about life through various scriptures and books.
Indian mythology is not my only interest.. I also love to paint characters from videogame and comic books.

One can call me a 12th grade pass if they want to because I don’t hold a degree and to be honest, I was never interested in having one either. After a couple of years of hard work I had my first exhibition as an artist in 2012 in India Habitat Center. To my surprise I managed to sell a bunch of my paintings, which I wasn't very confident about but it went a lot better than what I expected.
my second exhibition in Bangalore ,Chitrakala Parishat didn't go as planned because of certain unintelligent and ignorant individuals(religious fanatics to be precise) who found my paintings offensive and the people who owned the place weren't supportive either.

I'll let fate decide what happens in the future and I have many miles to go before I sleep.

Dear friend, 

Loved your art and your life philosophy, I am into education and training industry for the past 20 years and counselled more than 3000 students and working professionals and only thing I always say to them is Career is not about adding qualification to your resume but to add skill, knowledge and experience in chosen passionate area...and you are here a live example of my statement.

Right from my childhood I had these pictures (what you are drawing) in mind but god has not gifted me with skill of presenting them on paper...I tried my hand in multimedia in the starting of my career and as you felt with one of your colleges...I felt that they were not teaching what I wanted to learn hence quit, but focused on my skill area of counselling and supporting people by listing to them.

I am here writing this to you in anticipation to take your support making certain visual books with my concept of helping youngsters with Life planning.

I travel every month to New Delhi, can we catch up if yes! please write back to me with contact details, my mail id is kiran.anivilla@gmail.com

regards and salutes

I don't ever use this account, but I had to log on just to tell you that your art is beautiful and I am glad you are taking steps into the comics industry.  If possible, perhaps you could also consider starting an online / web comic in addition to printed works.  If you want some good examples of colored scrolling webcomics that are better suited to your style instead of the classic Western 4 panel webcomic, I will provide them though many will be Korean, as they have the best work in the scrolling format.

i want to suggest u a manga,i think this will give u more creative ideas,and perhaps u can apply it to our beloved hindu mythology characters, the mangas name is "FENG SHEN JI",i suggest u read it on mangahere.com. i dont know whether u will like it or not,but if u like it,i can suggest u tons of mangas with creative visuals which can inspire u more.its just normal comic,only either written by japanese,chinese etc but its in english so no worries....trust me u gonna like the fight scenes in it,the story is well ..in short...SPOILER : humans vs gods!!

Stunning work o'er there :D

Your Mythology folder is ESPECIALLY too awesome, and if you don't mind I would give you an open suggestion to start your own mythological comic series; fictional or based-on the actual thing. Too bored of reading the boring ones, you can put life to these characters.. Perhaps look for someone who's willing to write some. Like Amish Tripathi, check his novels: The Shiva Trilogy ('The Immortals of Meluha' one). :) Your re-imagination of gods in modern era is just WOW.
