HELLO FROM HIMALAYAS
For as long as I can remember, art has always been my language. After graduating in Jewelry & Lifestyle accessries from NIFT, gandhinagar, I allowed myself to explore out of my comfort zone to understand myself better. While on this journey, I learnt new Local crafts of Rural India, Buddhist Mandalas, Calligraphy, practiced vipassana, art therapy and had a lot of memorable, adventurous rides. As I was learning, I also decided to start sharing my vision and started teaching calligraphy & creative thinking in design universities along the way.
I explored art through different mediums that expanded my understanding of the word 'creativity'
This time I was not going to art, instead, art was flowing towards me.
In India, sages travel from South to Northern India (Himalayas) before they sit for their Sadhana (meditation); something like that happened with me too! After travelling for a decade, I reached the same scenery from my childhood, The Himalayas, and found my small but serene studio in between the stillness of mountains.
ABOUT THE STUDIO
Art Peace Studio is currently based at the foothill of Himalayan mountains in a small hill station – Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh, India which is also the exile home of HH Dalai Lama. The Studio was shaped during pandemic 2020, in an attempt to find structure in the midst of worldly chaos with the help of my partner and my sister.
Being an avid nature lover, I truly believe in the importance and impact of surroundings on our daily lives. The mission behind the studio is to create artworks which can act as tools for healing and help one to go deeper in their spiritual practise by staying connected with the higher universe.
Art Peace Studio artistically flaunts Mother nature’s two most beautiful gifts – Flowers & Crystals. Wherein I consciously handpick Himalayan flora and crystals with the intention to provide protective and positive energy in any given space. Here every creation is handmade intuitively, from the scratch in the foothills of Himalayas, believing that the chosen creation will act as a reflection of your truest nature.
Apurva has been sharing her skillset at reputable Art institutes as well as at grassroot level upliftment projects across India since a decade with the belief that passing on art skill is as important as creating art itself. Here are some places where Apurva has been associated with.
