Artist- Glass Affairs Studio
Shweta Vyas is an artist born and raised in India, a country rich in cultural heritage. Since a child, Shweta has expressed her ideas, experiences and passion for life through art, which has been with her in different forms, whether it’s dancing, singing or painting.
Since 2007 Shweta has worked as a professional artist painting murals, working on custom designs with interior designers and taking part in exhibitions showing her detailed and aesthetically beautiful paintings and creating an internet presence. She has gone on to paint not only on flat surface but also on different glass articles making them look all the more beautiful.
With a love for colour and intricate detail, Shweta’s works are vibrant, ethereal and imaginative. She believes in the healing influences of colour and art . Through her art she aims to connect people with their inner child and to bring some vibrancy and joy to their lives.
Painting is my way of meditation and colour is a way to express and celebrate the colours of my soul. I chose the painting medium as glass because it is fragile yet very strong and is equally transparent, something that represents me as a person.
My artwork is directly influenced by my life and what surrounds me. Nature, the Universe and it’s never ending patterns inspire me in my art and of course Sacred Geometry is something i believe in and paint these designs when i get a good chance. I keep sketchbooks of quick scribbles, a folder with colour combinations that I love and scrapbooks of images that capture my wild imagination. I use these as reference points when creating a painting.
Glass and glass colours have become my material of choice because I just love the richness and lustre it gives to my creations. Working on glass with liquid glass colours needs lots of patience and dedication. It also has to be very precise because unlike paper and canvas, glass is a transparent base and everything painted on one side is easily reflected on the other side of the glass.
For the future I hope to get into conducting more workshops for art lovers and teach them all the different techniques that I have learned and incorporated in my work with years of practice and experience. I also plan to exhibit more in public, especially solo, as I have been working predominantly online the last few years.
