Art has a wide range of applications and practices, which makes it not just about exploring beauty but also an expression of one’s emotions and inner feelings. Expressionism is an art form in which a distorted and abstracted image of reality is created to make it expressive of the artist’s emotions and ideas. Artists who practice Expressionism always strive to convey emotions and their meaning rather than reality, an ideal voice that echoes through the farthest parts of the world.
Rooftopcurated an amazing workshop for you to explore the deep and expressive world of Expressionism and invited artist Srishti Bansal to facilitate the session.
