Artwork Description

Akshita’s work  is inspired by nature especially flying buds or insects (birds, butterfly, honey bee and lady buds). She shows emotions and thoughts of human life and situations. In this painting she has shown how humans just fellow each other rather than following their own path, running after materialistic life, not understanding that it’s just an illusion and not the final goal of their life, it’s a trap.She uses more of decoration form in her print because she believes every beautiful thing has a dark side, same in humans too.
This is one situation she has shown in this print and kept it’s name as Mayabheda.
