Ritesh Shahi

Traditional Artists


Born in 1989, Shahi remanence 'As a child I was quite shy and liked to spend my time in solitude. While my friends would play on the streets, I would be found playing with art supplies, making paintings and crafts. Since childhood I was fascinated by our arts and culture. In my paintings, I try blending old antique styles with my own innovations. I consider the style developed by old masters as a precious gift to our generation. I try depicting them in my own imaginative styles.'
