‘Yes’ she said. ‘Modeling in itself is creative. Many people don’t realize it. Not everybody can become a model, it’s just not about vital stats, there’s more to it. To look into the camera and express is itself art, even if it’s a blank look. It’s not everybody’s cup of tea.
‘It needs discipline, focus and mental stability to handle a profession which is simply based on looks. Many can’t handle the insecurity that comes with it. Your core needs to be strong. Need to be confident from the inside and then it shows and you succeed.’ she says.
‘By being a model,you tend to travel, meet different kind of people, explore and enrich your life through it. I used my experience in the form of Art. Modeling was an expression from an external level and painting is internal. That’s the only difference. ‘she coos.
From then on, she traveled the world, looking for inspiration to express it on canvas. She attained a level of expertise in the medium of art by exploring different ways of conveying her message to the world.
Her recent work focuses on the essentials of life be it love or chaos. She has now carved her own space in the art world and has become renowned, nationwide for her unique style of painting. Each of her painting expresses a certain emotion which she’s experiencing at that point in time.
All of the paintings has a certain kind of individuality where people from all walks of life can connect to. She believes that creativity is a seed which can be fostered and nurtured in all activities of life, be it painting, cooking or the way one chooses to live. It is about living in the moment where she captures art on canvas.
‘Colors choose me’ she says. She’s a self taught artist and lets her subconscious mind take over while painting. She doesn’t have any fixed idea on what she’s painting but let’s the canvas express itself naturally.
Chez Shetty has the potential to become one of India’s greatest artist through her unconventional ways where each painting takes a life of its own.
