"Five Questions with the Artist Riya Rajayyan" by Jessica Wang

1. What inspires you to create art?


The fact that art holds expression is itself what inspires me to create. There are ways beyond words to express myself and I believe somewhere someone would always resonate with me.


2. How long have you been creating art?


I have been writing poetry since the past five years but I began painting in 2020 when the lockdown began.


3. Do you have any advice for aspiring artists?


I am an amateur myself but one thing I've learnt is that we should learn to accept our art as it and try to not compare it to other's works. Also, go crazy and don't hold yourself back.


4. What favorite mediums do you like working with?


My favourite medium currently is watercolour and I've been trying out the pen and ink techniques incorporated with it. I also like gouache and acrylics at times.

5. What do you hope to do with art in the future?


I have been diving into other art forms like resin art very recently and I hope to start selling them soon. As for painting, I hope to diversify the mediums I work with and find comfort in doing so.

Mediums: Mix of Watercolours, acrylic and gouache.
