Hi there, I am Anuja Aggarwal. I am an artist residing in Jaipur, India. Although I have been painting since childhood, I started my professional art journey in 2019. Currently, the medium I am spending most of my time on is Alcohol Inks, but I also work with watercolors, acrylic colors, gouache, and mixed mediums. Here are some snippets of my achievements since I started and things that I am most grateful for. Thank you so much for spending time on my website and supporting my work.

Alcohol ink art workshops are becoming very popular and people from all over the world want to learn different styles and techniques of working with the inks. I collaborated with a Russain artist Polina (she runs Mone & Mane Art Studio in Moscow).

ALCOHOL INK PAINTING GOT AWARDED 

15 AUGUST 2020

My painting was shortlisted and selected as the winner of the "Uniquely Indian" art challenge hosted by The Crimson Canvas on Instagram on Independence Day. The theme was to depict something which is Indian in your own way. Hundreds of artists on Instagram participated in the contest.

"We were pleasantly surprised at how the artist captured something as simple as the Dupatta, a quintessential Indian garb that is often lost in the background, using her own unique style involving Alcohol Inks."
