The Artist in you.

Everyone has a hobby. Some like to draw, some like to paint, some like to sing, some like to take photographs, some like to dance & so on.

For some, it’s just their hobby.

But for some it’s more than that, it’s their calling. They believe in it & are passionate about it.

They go on to follow their calling & take it up full-time. Some make time out of their jobs.

And some just forget it & move on in their lives.

They forget about the artist in themselves.

The question is why? Why do we let go of the artist in ourselves?

Why do we kill our calling for the sake of a lucrative career?

I believe art stands above all.

We can all mug up things & pass an exam or an interview. But we can’t sing like the rockstar that we all follow. Or we can’t make that masterpiece the painter next door did.

Because art is a blessing.

The ones who follow their heart, go with the flow & let the artist in themselves shine, are a blessing.

They make mistakes. They struggle. They fail. They learn. They retry. But at the end of the day, they do what they love.

Don’t let the artist in you die.

Ever.

Rebel.

While in the final year of college, I made up my mind that engineering isn’t for me, I want to shift fields & not go for a 9-5 job.

Hence, I started exploring.

I wanted to get out of my comfort zone.

Hence, I took up a job at a creative startup. I got to learn things I didn’t even know existed, met new people, traveled to new places, worked 24*7, experimented, failed, tried again & most importantly got to know myself.

I didn’t mind working till late because I loved my work; I enjoyed working.

I got all the opportunities I always wanted.

All this while my parents wanted me to prepare for a government job or to study for masters.

But, I decided to rebel.

Rebel. Rebel to me means standing for my dreams, for what I aspire to be. Rebel is to stand by what you believe in. Rebel is to stand against the stereotypes built by the society. Rebel is to break the barriers & follow your heart.

Today, I am here as Artist Fix; still learning to stand by my dreams. Still not sure about how it’s gonna work. Still struggling with my crazy aspirations.

But I am sure I’ll figure it out. Because all this while standing up for myself, I have learned

Because all this while standing up for myself, I have learned to rebel. I have learned it’s worth fighting for your dreams & believing in yourself.

Trust me, each step forward feels like an achievement; like a battle won.

Believe.

Rebel.

Only art can heal.

I have always been an art lover. Someone who is fascinated by colors, random doodles, sketches, poetry & musical notes. I adore art; more so artists.

I believe artists are a blessing. Not everyone has the power to brighten up your day or turn your frown upside down. Not everyone is blessed with the power to heal. But, artists are. They create magic out of their art; out of music, words, colors.

Today, everyone is busy running the money race. There’s just a bunch of people out there who are still stuck with their passion. I call them artists.

Artists, the wonderful beings who believed in their art, stood against the stereotypes, choose to follow their dreams & dared to pave their own path.

Not everyone understands art. I believe there is a dire need to appreciate it more often.

Thus, I am here with Artist Fix.

To fix the generation gap. To fix people’s perception towards art. To fix the flaws in the society when it comes to art.

Let’s all come together to dream & support & create art!

Hi dreamers!

I recently left my job.

Now, let’s go back two years from now.

An engineering graduate just out of college, I was clueless about what I want to do in life. I took a month off to travel. Still, I was clueless. Soon enough I joined an NGO as a project coordinator & got an opportunity to work with international students. Thrilled by the cultural immersion out there, my life was getting sorted. But then I decided to explore more & joined a Media firm to hone my management skills. The path was getting clear, I was able to sense my love towards people & communications. I started applying for jobs; creative jobs particularly Startups where I’d get a chance to explore. I was clear about what I wanted now & thus I bid goodbye to my 4-year-old friend; Engineering.

I loved my work. I loved my colleagues. I loved the opportunities I got. I loved every bit of my job. And then, I left.

Again I was at the same spot, unsure about what I want to do further.

And today, after a lot of introspection, a lot of chilling in pajamas & weaving dreams out of my crazy aspirations; I am here.

I am here as Artist Fix. To fix a lot of things. Stay tuned 🙂
