Q. Please introduce yourself.
Hi, myself Sayan Ghosh, from Kolkata. I am an engineering student, I also like to spend my spare time making illustrations.
Q. What made you start your art page? Please share what is your Instagram profile is all about and how did your journey start?
In the early days, I didn’t plan anything about my Instagram profile. I just posted my artworks just to keep them on the internet. Because if and when I want to show someone my artworks, I will address them to my profile, and all things will be there. But nowadays I don’t post everything due to having so many unfinished works and some works I’m not satisfied with.
Q. Is being an artist your full-time profession or do you work elsewhere? Is it possible to make out a sustainable career out of art in today’s world?
As I said earlier, I’m a student. So, making art is not my full-time profession. But I’m looking forward to it.
Q. What would you consider your biggest achievement so far?
I haven’t worked in any well-known places before. But I got 1500+ followers on Instagram in 30 hours, and that’s a huge for me.
Q. What is your signature style of art that represents you as an artist? What does your work aim to say? Do you address current world scenarios through your work?
I believe in stories of our daily life. Simple things, touched with emotions.
Q. What is your favourite medium to work upon? And your favourite work tools?
I’m in love with digital drawing nowadays, but I also prefer acrylic colours on canvas.
Q. When you start a new piece of art, how do you get the inspiration/motivation it? How long does it take approximately to finish one piece of art?
After drawing the basic outline form, I look up for what more detail can be added to that. Sometimes I searched some pictures of that on the internet. Not every time or everything was coming up as I’m looking for, but it helps me. Even my artworks are not always, ends up as I was imagined before.
And not every piece of art required same amount of time or detailing, it generally takes 2 to 4 days.
Q. Who are your biggest influences?
Pascal Campion, Polina bright and my friend Indra.
Q. How do you manage your family life along with other commitments and running a page?
I usually make artworks in my spare time, but sometimes I have to manage with other things just for spending more time with it.
Q. What are the biggest challenges that you face as an artist? Is creative block a common problem?
Creative block is a very common thing to me, and I think it’s a common problem in every artist’s life.
Q. Which current art world trends are you following, if any?
Sometimes I made some artwork in other artist’s style for experimentation and fun, but I believe that every artist should have their own stylization.
Q. Apart from being an artist, what are your hobbies?
Q. Please share your experience with different brands/projects you have worked with?
I worked as a freelancer for various companies and govt organizations.
Q. There are a lot of shoddy people on social media who either try to discredit others or stalk them. How do you deal with such people or negativity in general? Does it bog you down or affect your mental peace?
Some people discredited my artworks. And that’s the part I love the most nowadays. Because, that’s what forced me to give my best. So I took that as a compliment. And as long my artworks are taken by somebody, I believe that I’m doing well. I only want everybody to see my works, nothing else for now.
Q. Would you like to give a word of advice to all the budding artists who are trying to make their mark through their art?
Q. What are your future plans for your page and profile? Are you happy with the way it has shaped up?
I’m in love with the way how it’s growing up day by day, how I’m connecting with more people and how they showing their love towards my profile.
