Ever since I was little, I used to always look forward to traveling and going on adventures. I have always yearned to experience and explore various places, cultures, and cuisines. Visiting new places and countries was an exhilarating experience for me and it always continues to intrigue me.
As someone who had hopped from place to place; when covid hit and lockdowns were imposed, my travelers’ spirit felt trapped. I wanted to do something to reminisce about travel and at the same time add new places to my bucket list. For the longest time, I have wanted to create a series of artworks. So I decided to combine my love for both art and travel by creating a series of paintings. I wanted to encapsulate each country on a canvas. Inspired by the movie – Around the World in 80 Days, I decided to name my series “Around the World in 80 Paintings”
Throughout the series, I will be creating paintings related to 80 different countries. Through these paintings, I hope to bring out the famous sites, culture, and vibes of every place to life. Although I can’t hop, skip, and jump from place to place, I am going to be hopping, skipping, and jumping from canvas to canvas. I would love to take you on a journey through my artworks and make all of you experience parts of the world through strokes and hues.
Once the collection of 80 paintings is complete, there will be an exhibition sale, allowing patrons to buy any piece that they would like to keep as a fond memory.
