artySORTS is about
living your art,
breathing art in your everyday life,
recognizing art that permeates your very being,
bringing the artist inside you to consciousness.
Our definition goes beyond the common place understanding of art that is limited to the visual arts of a certain kind. For us, art is that which enriches our lives, gives meaning, definition and expression to the human condition.
It is a way of understanding, illuminating, and expressing our emotions, our world, and the world around us.
BE or BECOME 'an artist at being' and in that being you become aware of your very existence as an art form.
“ When what fuels your life is ART, something like this becomes inevitable. ”
‘artySORTS’ was one the many curious words or string of words that fleetingly visit my mind space unless I do bother to freeze it in writing. I am glad I did that for artySORTS, I then started dwelling on it and the little elements that define me and my purpose started coming together.
There are many things that are ‘me’, but I get this overwhelming realization that the aesthete in me takes over everything else. And I am convinced that the way I see the world is way too colourful, dramatic, and imperfectly beautiful to be true, but it probably is like that too. You just need to pick the right lens to view perspectives. I was blessed with the ‘right’ lens. I grew up living art, without even consciously realizing that. I am conscious now and this initiative is to share this consciousness of art in everyday life with you.
I have been in Delhi for quite some time now, but the way artySORTS has made us see / feel it aesthetically ..its so refreshing ..thanks for taking us to the nook and corners where art is hiding or flourishing.. looking forward to being a part of upcoming sojourns .. amazing experiences in each event meeting people from all walks of life making happy memories. - Manisha
Her keenness in getting it right and the immersion in detail while indulging in designing the concept sketch baffled me. I see that she sees what I don’t. And we so need that. Go on. Paint the world in your colours. - Christian
They had such innovative activities at Colorothon. My children had a lot of fun, they are definitely going to try this at home. - Seema
You do actually realize that art is all around you. The walks are a wonderful way to explore these places where I would not go otherwise. - Abhishek
Abstraction in art can be paralleled to the evolution of an artist; surrealism in abstract art is like a huge dollop of imagination over and within abstraction. Sahaya's work is experimental, evolving and urges the viewer to search for forms, creatures, faces, and places. With a love for colour, texture, harmony, and rhythm; right now it is predominantly ‘Abstract’ in nature with several influences injected from the spiritual, the psychological and the everyday. It could be a really really sad movie that made her finish up a box of tissues or a fancy bug that crawled up in an unexpected place. Her inspirations are alive. They are here, they are now.
Sahaya Sharma was born in New Delhi in 1993. While she spent her early years in Delhi, her real passion for art was channeled and during her impressionable years spent in the lush valley of Dehradun where she attended the prestigious Welham Girls' School. Far from the easy access to cell phones, television, internet and the outside world, she painted the tunes in her mind and her memories of home. After Welham, she graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from Lasalle College of the arts in Singapore, a place she credits for opening a whole new horizon of exposure to artists and techniques that she was earlier oblivious of. Sahaya lives and works in New Delhi. She has had three solo exhibitions in Delhi and is currently working towards her fourth show in 2018.
