“The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable – Kurt Vonnegut
Probably that’s the reason some people refuse to follow the herd blindly. Instead, they listen to their hearts and choose to pursue art despite the uncertainties associated with it. Niharika’s story is a testimony to her eternal love for art and that underlying courage in pursuing it as an artist and entrepreneur. With the launch of her startup venture named Niharikaart gallery in 2019, Niharika aims to create art that becomes a part of all the big small moments of your life.
When your heart guides you down the path
For most artists, what begins as a fun hobby translates into an intense passion, eventually shaping up their choices in life. Niharika learnt the craft of painting on her own, honed her skills and finally decided the time was apt to dive into her own art business. The talented artist explains “When I was about to start Niharikaart gallery, I promised to forsake all kinds of distractions to make this work. Hence, movies, games and parties took a backseat.” She realized early on the importance of discipline and consistency and toiled hard every single day to create something extraordinary. However, as Niharika herself admits, “none of this would have been possible without the love and support of her husband.” He recognized the god-gifted talent that she had been bestowed with and egged her on to achieve her dreams. So, Niharika bought her art supplies, pencils and books and began painting to her heart’s content.
