Finding the Core “me-ness” of an Artist!
“Art was not merely something to be consumed but also something that could be created.” The line that catapulted Krishna Bala Shenoi into the world of camcorders, building blocks, clay models and art.
How did you step into the colourful world of art and illustrations?
Krishna: Saying I stepped into the world of art would be misleading; my mother led me into it. She introduced me to the films of her childhood, the storybooks in nearby bookstores, and most importantly the radical idea that art was not merely something to be consumed but also something that could be created. That might sound self-evident, but from my point of view as a child, it was an absolutely revolutionary idea. She would draw just to show my sister and I that we could. I'm grateful my mother bought me art supplies, and I'm grateful my father later allowed me to use our family Handy Cam. Being surrounded by amazing art showed me the door, but being given access to the tools pushed me in.
