Namrata Kumar is an artist and graphic designer based out of New Delhi, India. She graduated from the Srishti School of Art & Design, Bangalore, India in 2010 and has been a practicing graphic designer, illustrator and painter ever since.
Namrata feels the most inspired when she travels, she feels experiencing new cultures, people and places helps to give her perspective. The change in environment, unfamiliar sights, sounds, colours and smells are invigorating and energising, leading to new ways of seeing.
About her medium of choice, she says. “For personal work, I choose my medium based on the subject of the painting, although I most commonly use acrylic paints since I’m comfortable with them and love the aesthetic and quality of the medium. I also love working with oil pastels, I feel the medium has a lot of character and lends a raw, rough feel to the artwork. It’s such an underrated, under-used medium, I find it an absolute pleasure to work with”. She enjoys creating digital paintings now and then, particularly when working on commercial projects. She considers her choice of colours to be a very important aspect of her work.
Namrata likes to dabble in ceramics and pottery in her free time.
