Art captures the human imagination at its best. The art of storytelling has engaged our race from time unknown. Manisha Swarnkar does just that- weaving sand into mosaics of different hues and creating a canvas of stories as exquisite as nature itself. From human relationships, tragedies to social messages, her art depicts the dynamic nature of visuals and the natural flow of her story-telling medium. As the pages of time turn, so does the sands of time. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then Manisha’s sand arts tell an entire story as she makes magic out of those tiny grains and her illustrations make characters seemed to have come to life.
Manisha is an animator and a sand artist from Mumbai whose art form will leave you spellbound by its sheer beauty. An alumna of the Industrial Design centre at IIT-Bombay and the Bhilai Institute of Technology, she turned her penchant for the art into a passion and is now one of the most accomplished sand artists in the country.
