Meghana Basi is spring art contest Top Ten Winner for her artwork “The Mask.”
I’m Meghana Basi, 15yrs old, going to the Walnut Hill School For The Arts in Natick MA. I’m a youthfully inspired artist, becoming a top ten winner for the third time, so this is my hat-trick win!! First of all, thank you Celebrating Art and Blick Art for motivating kids to believe in their talents to think beyond the horizons! At an early age of 3, I started exploring colors. By 8, I knew I can draw gracefully in bigger canvases expressing my dynamic SELF. In all these years, it’s an evolution of ‘ME’ and my ‘ART’ holding hands together through this journey!
My creation, “THE MASK” was inspired by today’s society around us, who lack the potential of understanding who they are or kept disregarding their identity. We are all wearing a MASK, and beneath that façade is our true self! Our authenticity is by being true to our SELF through our thoughts words and actions. Through this painting I want society to realize that our beauty lies in letting down the mask and being our true authentic SELF.
My goal is to incorporate my art into all sorts of diverse and complex possibilities and techniques that no one could ever imagine about. There is a vast sea through which I got to swim across to reach my destination. I’m a just a small fish in a gigantic ocean of colors! At the same time, I feel my art speaks more than my words, enlightening and touching this world and there is nothing really left to say. Again, thank you, Celebrating Art and Blick Art for giving me this ladder to climb up high!
