Ishika  Guha: Rainbows and Fireflies

Ishika Guha approaches a blank canvas by following the impulses of energy that flow within her. She works freely; expressing raw emotion as vibrant poetry. For Ishika, art and creativity complete her. Her vibrant colours become her voice when nothing else works, they are her tool for communication and deep healing. She shares how her growing Instagram community empowers and inspires her; how she pushes past feelings of self-doubt; and how she embraces her night-owl solitude for true dream-time.

In his vibrant works, he seeks to awaken the senses and encourage viewers to connect with their wild, natural selves. Patrick shares how solitude is vital for his art practise and how he is a detective on the hunt for aesthetic beauty and resonance.

Eline combines contrasting disciplines in her art practise; merging the geometric constructs found in Maths and Physics with the organic, fluid movements found through painting. Her pieces centre around ‘Hu’ the ‘Flower of Life’ which symbolises unity and eternal creation. Eline talks us through how 'Hu' influences her art; the importance and necessity of music as she works; and her aims to create art more sustainably.
