Anirudh Sainath
Artist | Digital Art
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.

this is my first speech ever so bear with me lol!
