Gift of Life
“After my mom and father separated, I live with my grandmother and my mom. They struggled and work hard in taking care of me and my studies. They gave me the strength and courage to chase my dream and do quality artworks. After my marriage, I got inspired by my wife and daughter. I learned a lot from them. I see her pain, her sacrifice and her care for my daughter. When I was making this artwork I tried to make it unique and created a different perspective to the woman’s life. In this artwork, you can see few powerful elements and symbolic representation of the life, which is to care and protect, butterflies represents the unlimited possibility and you can see a life cycle in it, these are all the ideas behind it. Now, I want to dedicate this art work to every woman and my great family.” Sijin Gopinathan relates how the great women behind him inspired him and his work.
The Journey to Perfection
Sijin believes that an artistic approach is a path that leaves many options since the art is what it reflects a viewpoint through the chosen colors. He uses the creative medium as catalysts to uncover the true self. Sijin’s relationship with creativity started very young when he was inspired by the great Raja Ravi Varma, and MF Hussain. An artist is always in a struggle with perfectionism, and after learning how to cope with the nuance of perfectionism, that’s when he decided why and that is why he is an Artist. He chose this profession because it gives him the power to generate unlimited ideas and possibilities. It is always like coming home to your creative soul. Now, he specialized in doodle arts and did many exhibitions in Dubai including World Art Dubai at World Trade Center.
