Anurag Mehta is a self taught professional watercolor artist from Udaipur. He started painting from an early age and is now known as one of the best artists of the city.
Most of Anurag’s paintings are based on Udaipur city. He says, “My birthplace is Udaipur and I have a deep fascination towards this beautiful city. I think Udaipur has got a wide range of subjects for a painter. The sparkling blue water of the lakes, vibrant scenes of Ghats and the unique Rajput style architecture is like a feast for my artwork.”
On choosing watercolor medium, Anurag Mehta says, “Although watercolor is the toughest medium to handle, but its freshness and spontaneity attracted me always. For subjects such as landscape with water, watercolor is the best. It needs a long practice and patience to get mastery over it and I am trying hard for that.”
Anurag further says. “Through my paintings, I want to deliver an appeal to citizens of Udaipur that we must protect our lakes, monuments and architecture since these are our identity.”
