Artist of UNSEEN 2.0 - Anshita Solanki | Writer, Author
UNSEEN 2.0 is an unconventional form of exhibition which is a digital art exhibition curated by Platform For Artists . This enables artists across the country to participate, showcase their work and connect with like minded people. The entire idea is to broaden the scope of exposure which the artists would probably not get at an offline event. We have sixty diverse artists from across the country who are a part of this one of it's kind art exhibition.
Here is a set of questions team Platform For Artists asked Anshita about her everyday routine, her interests and more.
Tell us about yourself.
I work as a content writer in an IT firm, writing about new innovations in the field of technology like smart homes, connected cars, AI, and more. I pen down experiences and emotions. Writing relatable content and helping people connect with my write-ups is one passion I keenly work upon.
What are your art interests?
I love writing my thoughts in the form of poems and musings. Apart from that, I'm an avid reader. I love listening to music - it's like breathing to me. Also, I'm a movie/series buff.
What are your views about the current scenario of art in our country?
Art has always been looked upon as a mere after thought. It is not seen as a career option or something one might want to pursue in their life. However, the generation of today changing this scenario.
What are you working on currently?
I'm currently writing an LGBTQIA+ themed fiction which revolves around self-acceptance and individuality.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I am a good listener, that's what my friends claim. So the stories that I've witnessed so far (personal and while observing others) are my inspiration.
Which kind of artists would you be interested to collaborate with?
Ideally musicians would be the best for the kind of art I'm involved in. However, painters and sketch artists can also be helpful.
What's the first thing you do when you wake up ?
I give myself time to breath by closing my eyes for a while.
Which is the most used app in your phone?
Which is the one song you can't get out of your head?
Tonight we are young by fun.
You de-stress by?
Music is my only escape. Also, re-runs of series Friends.
