"Since childhood, drawing for me has been the simplest and most direct way of expression. It comes naturally to me when I feel something strongly—be it the feeling of happiness, anger, joy, silence, contentment, loneliness, pain. I always have an immediate urge to express it. I usually carry a small sketchbook with me, where I can instantly doodle my ideas. Everything begins from here!
Drawing continues to provide an immediate form of expression. It is ideally suited to modern life such as being on the go and allows a greater independence from conventional studio spaces. I think a drawing in whatever shape or form should retain something of the eye, mind and hands of its maker. As with all good art, a drawing must be authentic." - Shivangi Ladha
