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.

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

A song is more than just music and lyrics - what blends in both are the Vocals. And that is our focus for this Month - the Vocals of a song. Brian Wilson said - " I think I'm a vocal genius, not a musical genius. I like background vocals. I consider myself a voice, not a singer. A voice is a sound, and singing is what you do with that sound." In this month we will explore how do artists voice their sound, what compels them to do so and how it is actualized in a song. Sing along as we share our take on a young vocal artist who strums his guitar along to complement his very relatable songs.
True to his name Gursidak singh epitomizes patience and contentment. He is a budding civil engineer with interests as diverse as construction and singing. He did his schooling from Jalandhar and is currently based in Dellhi. He has not has any formal training in music, but has always been self-taming his vocal chords. During his school days he was an active participant in various co-curricular activities which gave him a lot of exposure to the stage. This gave him the confidence to learn how to play the guitar through online lessons. Although he loves to sing folk songs from Punjab, he also sings contemporary bollywood songs. Improvisation and innovation come naturally to him and that can be clearly seen in his artistic pursuits. His soulful singing touches the heart and brings solace to the listener.
