Artist Profile: Vishal Misra

I've spent many many hours, over the last few months, admiring the work of so many gifted Indian artists. I finally decided it is time to share some of these wonderful artists with you guys. I declare October, 'Artist Profile Month' on Soundhornplease. Now, I know I am making this declaration when we are already more than 10 days into October. I promise to make up for my frazzled last minute ideas by being less lazy and posting more posts :)

I kick-off the 'Artist Profile Month' with the extremely talented Vishal Misra. Vishal is a Chartered Accountant by profession and has received no formal training in art. But his amazing portfolio of work has been exhibited in India, Canada, the US, Japan, London and Dubai.

I loved his Ganeshas series. I seem to have a soft spot for elephants recently. 

Figurative or Abstract- very aptly titled by Vishal. 

You can check out more of Vishal's work on his website. You can also follow Vishal on twitter. In case, you want to see an actual painting before buying it, given below is a list of galleries selling Vishal's work. 

The Artists Alley, San Francisco, US
Art Expressions Gallery, Dubai, UAE
Indian Art Experiece, Gurgaon, India
ArtTrax Gallery, Port Credit, Canada
Impressions Art Gallery, Toronto, Canada

Stay tuned for a sneak peek into many more talented Indian artists.

I am glad you are featuring Indian artists! I will be here :):). Vishal's work is very interesting :). So she is a chartered accountant ? I must show my best friend who is also one . He too loves to draw and is planning to write a book illustrated with his own drawings and photography :). So who says accountants are boring?
