Originally from Uttar Pradesh, Indian artist Vernika Singh lives and works in New Delhi. She paints independently, seeking out what interests her most, specifically abstracts. She uses mixed mediums to represent her emotions and phases in life in the form of elements of the ocean. The artist’s use of colours and materials is in fact aimed at creating a sublime form, something that stands outside reality rather than in it. “I create not to be seen, but to be experienced by making an honest connection between my canvas and the viewer’s emotions,” the artist candidly says.
