Art is something that has a deeper meaning, and artists happen to be creative souls who try to give vent to their imagination through their artwork. Meet the young artist Swaetcha Repalle who has just conducted a solo exhibition in Daira Centre for Arts and Culture.
Swaetcha Repalle is pursuing her bachelor’s degree in Humanities stream from St Francis Degree College with Psychology, English Literature, and Political Science as her subjects. She has been cultivating art as a hobby for the past four years. Attracted to the umpteen possibilities offered by an unfettered imagination that art offers, she started pursuing it.
She chose visual arts as one of her subjects in her Intermediate at the Aga Khan Academy, and with the guidance of remarkable teachers, her interest had blossomed. “I have to thank my teachers Vikram Raj and Vijay Raghavan who trained and guided me to get into art,” says Swaetcha Repalle, who was born in Warangal and brought up in Hyderabad.
“This is my first solo art exhibition, and I was a bit nervous and curious too. I have exhibited around 30 pieces of my artwork in the exhibition, and my art talks about reflection. I have given different names for each artwork like ‘Journey’, and ‘Too Far Away Land’, as each painting has its own meaning,” says the 20-year-old.
Swaetcha’s artwork often carries a surrealistic touch because to her surrealism and fiction are the ways through which the boundaries of reality can be surpassed.
