Artist of UNSEEN 2.0 - Yusuf Sadriwala | Sketch Artist

I have a dream of doing something different with art and design. My artistic mind made me pursue interior architecture. So.. This is how it started.I went through an operation when I was 12 and hospital is the place where it started. Dad had brought a pictorial book and after reading I started drawing the pictures.And the lady with whom I was sharing the room like the drawings and it made me do more.Drawing became dormant once I was normal. Then in 7th std during the art class It became active.I forgot to bring colors which teacher asked us to. No colors made me use pencil to shade.And it came out well and even teacher appreciated me.Appreciation made me to do more and started learning Technics from different sources and become better in it.And I am still learning.
