  • Biography

    A self-taught multidisciplinary artist, Sumit Mehndiratta has pursued Master of Science in international fashion marketing from Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. He has worked with online art galleries and exhibited his works, both group and solo shows across the UK and India. Sumit enjoys making artworks from different mediums that please the mind and soul of the individual.

    Describing his style of work, the Delhi-based artist avers, “My main genre of work is nature and abstraction, which is prominent in most of the works. I love abstraction and the fact that everyone perceives it differently. It brings me pleasure to see how people relate to different shapes and colours, and interpret them differently.”

    Sumit claims to have been experimental since childhood. Be it drawing, sketching, cooking, painting or photography, he always liked to do something no one has ever thought of, by adding his signature element to the task. To achieve this, Sumit sometimes creates his own painting tools to go with the techniques he thinks of. “I usually discover different techniques to paint and construct my own tools to put the ideas into action. I pick up a theme and make a series of paintings on them. When the technique gets repetitive, I wait for another inspiration to strike, and I move onto the next series,” professes Sumit. He does not have any ‘patented style’ as he terms it to be mere repetition and limits an artist’s creativity.

    Sumit strives to portray feelings of happiness, calmness, serenity, vibrancy and energy through his works that coalesce motifs, psychedelic patterns and elements of nature in a soothing colour palette. Well, he terms it to be the art of turning liquid paint with the help of some brushes to such a level of beauty.

Biography

A self-taught multidisciplinary artist, Sumit Mehndiratta has pursued Master of Science in international fashion marketing from Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. He has worked with online art galleries and exhibited his works, both group and solo shows across the UK and India. Sumit enjoys making artworks from different mediums that please the mind and soul of the individual.

Describing his style of work, the Delhi-based artist avers, “My main genre of work is nature and abstraction, which is prominent in most of the works. I love abstraction and the fact that everyone perceives it differently. It brings me pleasure to see how people relate to different shapes and colours, and interpret them differently.”

Sumit claims to have been experimental since childhood. Be it drawing, sketching, cooking, painting or photography, he always liked to do something no one has ever thought of, by adding his signature element to the task. To achieve this, Sumit sometimes creates his own painting tools to go with the techniques he thinks of. “I usually discover different techniques to paint and construct my own tools to put the ideas into action. I pick up a theme and make a series of paintings on them. When the technique gets repetitive, I wait for another inspiration to strike, and I move onto the next series,” professes Sumit. He does not have any ‘patented style’ as he terms it to be mere repetition and limits an artist’s creativity.

Sumit strives to portray feelings of happiness, calmness, serenity, vibrancy and energy through his works that coalesce motifs, psychedelic patterns and elements of nature in a soothing colour palette. Well, he terms it to be the art of turning liquid paint with the help of some brushes to such a level of beauty.

On collecting Sumit Mehndiratta's artwork, you help him contribute 10% of his earnings to an Animal Welfare organisation based in Delhi called Friendicoes () who treat and shelter injured animals from the city.
