In a process to express his emotions via art, Rohan Bhatia is an artist who is staying with his family in Thane, Mumbai. Finding the positivity in the lockdown restrictions, he describes it as “fun” as it enables him to take a few steps back, pause and then reboot towards a better and wiser direction. He believes that there is no point in cribbing about things that are beyond our control, and rather finds inspirations and creativity in them.
Things that Rohan finds the most relaxing are which he has been doing during the lockdown are creating artworks, watching movies and deriving inspiration from it, and finds solace in making paintings.
Having a unique style is something that he does not stand by and likes to be used in his techniques and mediums which help him express his ideas in a better way.
Rohan believes that the world will be different post the pandemic as people are now more aware and cautious of their actions, hygiene and nature as well. Running out of words, he feels that looking by into people’s eyes, one cannot determine if they’re happy or sad, as everyone is going through a different emotion, but believes that we’ll come out of it stronger.
