Description Krishna is a Hindu god who is sometimes seen as the supreme god, from which all other gods originated. His name means many things including “dark one,” “bluish black” (his complexion is described to be “that of a storm cloud”) and “existence of knowledge and bliss.” He is associated with the Hindu concept of Lila, which explains the universe as a cosmic “purposeless play.” Krishna is always depicted wearing peacock feathers in his crown, therefore I chose to represent his manifestation of the world, his “Lila,” in the form of a peacock. Instead of giving Krishna an actual form, I drew only his eyes and nose to show his oneness with the universe and the cosmos. Krishna’s eyes are said to be incredibly beautiful and play an important role in many Hindu myths.
Aditi Desai, MI, USA Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement Hello, my name is Aditi Desai. I am a 19-year-old aspiring artist and designer. I am currently in my second year of college, and am working toward a degree in Graphic Design. Art has always been my biggest passion, and I hope to pursue it further throughout my life. I like to make anything and everything from web pages to clothes. I love bright colors, swirls, and blobs, all of which show up quite a bit in my art. The themes that I explore in my artwork are nature and culture. I’m always working on improving my skills, so any comments, feedback, or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for visiting my gallery! :)
