A little about the work for Eighteen Plus:
Sensuality, like charm, is best portrayed by those who don’t know they have it. I wanted to portray the sensuality of innocence and youth, of being sixteen and full of dreams. I like working with light and shade, but I also like working fast, with rapid strokes that capture a moment.
I think all of us value our privacy, and I was looking for those moments when we are by ourselves.
Quiet moments of reflection, of dressing up, of preparing for the day.
This is a girl lost in thought – daydreaming, reflecting, or just thinking of what role the day might have in store for her.

Karishma Goyal Bansal

They say beautiful art is food for one’s soul – for Karishma that is true! It is the beauty that she found in others’ art that made her take this plunge into this wonderful world of colours. She was born and brought up in Chandigarh. An engineer by profession with a keen interest in Math, she has mentored many students in the continents of Asia, Europe and North America. Her love for numbers made her pursue CFA and one would usually find her rallying or tumbling along or against the stock market on any given weekday! She strives to make paintings that captivate the onlooker, make them come back for a second look in an art gallery, and stay with them when they go home, paintings that never merge into the background, but are admired every single day by their proud owners.
