Anupama Trigunayat: Journey from an Academician to a Painter

Canvas Art exhibition by Anupama Trigunayat 

I am an abstract artist.The gift of form is a profound homecoming, as some one has aptly said. The form, shapes, array of colors in my work is a reflection of my own abstract vocabulary and imagination connecting with the real and the surreal. My work is seldom planned; instead it evolves into a finished painting with good energy, juicy paints and delicious bright colors. Every canvas is a new beginning, a new story and my tranquil retreat: Anupama Trigunayat

New Delhi, Dec 25, 2020: Merry Christmas to all of you! Today, when I am writing this piece of article on the Anupama Trigunayat's journey from an academician to a painter, I have a mix feeling. Around three decades ago, I had started my journey of journalism as an art-culture-lieterature reporter. Since, I myself was active in the theatre as an actor, director and playback artist; I was deeply influenced by the world of art.

I always believed in the words of Kilroy J. Oldster who has said, “The aesthetics of language is the ineluctable medium of thought that wends through the leas of prose and poetry, literature and philosophy. People who think are always analytical. Essays, literature, and poetry are analytical and philosophical. All philosophy is literary prose; all philosophy contains the poetry of thought.”

However, when I came to Delhi and started my professional career with a leading newspaper, I was told, that becoming opinion maker is much more necessary and important not only from the career point of view, but also to influnce the policy makers and decision makers in the best interest of the society and the nation. And since then my focus was tilted more towards writing on socio-economic-political and international topics and less towards art & culture. However, art-culture-theatre still flows in my blood, soul and family.  

Now, let me talk about Former ambassador and my dear friend Anil Trigunayat's wife Anupama Trigunayat's journey of art. From an academician to a painter Anupama's journey took several years but with thorough perseverance and hard work, she finally succeeded in breaking the barrier. Recently, she held her first art exhibition in the national capital. Though, it wasn't her first. Her first exhibition had taken place in an uncertain Libya when her husband was posted there.

René Magritte has rightly said, “Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist.” Anupama Trigunayat’s Art also evokes mix of beauty and mystery.

“My art has been a very personal affair for me for a long time. My work has been greatly influenced by international art. Having lived in different countries because of my husband’s job, I had the opportunity to appreciate and assimilate different traditions and techniques and multicultural ethos,” says Anupama while talking about her journey of art.

“I work with both acrylic and oil media. My canvasses are like my own open book of stories.I hope my viewers find their own connection and little stories of their own,” she says.

Anupama Trigunayat, who is also founder and president of "World Federation of Zervas Art Clubs" & "Club UNESCO of Arts in Achaia" in Delhi NCR, further says, “I am an abstract artist.The gift of form is a profound homecoming, as some one has aptly said. The form, shapes, array of colors in my work is a reflection of my own abstract vocabulary and imagination connecting with the real and the surreal. My work is seldom planned instead it evolves into a finished painting with good energy, juicy paints and delicious bright colors. Every canvas is a new beginning, a new story and my tranquil retreat.”

Anupama Trigunayat has showcased her paintings in several exhibitions abroad. However, after having exhibitions abroad she recently exhibited her work for first time in Delhi. An exhibition of Anupama’s fabulous abstract canvasses was opened and inaugurated by Ambassador Hardeep Singh Puri, Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministries of Housing and Urban Affairs; Civil Aviation; and Commerce and Industry.

Anupama Trigunayat is a wife, mother and a great animal lover and an educationist. As she is dedicated to the cause of elderly and animals she prefers to share the proceeds for their welfare and wellbeing. The in depth depiction of our emotions are reflected through her formative yet abstract art.
