Currently based in Bangalore, Ritu Arya is a freelance artist, primarily working with the music and lifestyle sector. A textile design graduate with a keen interest in Indian textiles & crafts, she spent a few years running a blog [Razzle Dazzle Pickle] where she combined her love for both music and photography, and has also been co-running a music community [Drum and Bass India] that promotes and supports and related artists in the country. In the middle of a slow transition of work/career, from design to art, she recently did her very first exhibition [online] in Cologne, Germany and will be soon starting her further studies.
At the moment, she is delving into multiple mediums, with photography being the main outlet, and her work mostly revolves around human emotions, memories, anguish, lingering thoughts, empty space and such. Big believer in simple things, she wishes to put together the day-to-day things into a perspective that stirs something inside the viewer, like a small part of her own agitation.
