 Smt. Simmi Rishi – Versatile Artist from Delhi


Q1. How did your career journey start? Or Who/What inspired you to start this Art Journey?

I have a good hand in art since my childhood as my father was a good writer and artist by his heart, but  journey with art started on a serious note after marriage.  My husband pushed me to explore this artistic side of me. So two pillars of my strength are my father and my husband. 

 

Q2. Kindly share some information about your Arts, products and services here.

As a creative person I do experiment with all mediums from charcoal to oil etc. These two mediums are my favorite so far. Presently I am researching and working on our folk arts which allows me to connect with our roots and culture. I am enjoying making mithila paintings. My focus is always on the creative side so that I can show the uniqueness of my insight that is my strength. I can work on any surface with any medium. My paintings depict mostly women as a main character. I try to break stereotypes rituals which divide the society in two separate groups (men & women) I believe in one race; human race.

I do freelance work as an artist and also take art sessions for all ages.

 



Q3. What kind of challenges did you face while starting/doing your arts?


I believe a real artist can give her best in her work but it can be difficult to market and advertise her work. I as well faced many issues in promoting, selling and I am learning how I can market and advertise my work.  Honestly I can sit and work but finding the right market or right clients has proven to be a challenge. With the time you need to learn other skills which compliment your work as that is definitely important. 

 

Q4. Are you an Art Entrepreneur?


Well..I can say I am an art entrepreneur but not consistently because of family responsibilities. Most of time, I quit working and then start all over again. In that way, I am an expert in starting fresh :)

 









Q5. Do share with our readers about your discovery period when you were facing difficulties?


As a freelance artist I faced many hurdles in adjusting and starting fresh. I remember in Bangalore, I participated in a Diwali event for the first time. It was an awkward experience for me to stand and promote my artworks, as it was not something  I had done before. But  one week's experience enriched me and showed the difficulties  artisans face. The need to sell my work was not a burden for me earlier as I wasn't the breadwinner of my family as an artist. However, this experience opened my eyes to the struggles that other artists may face when it comes to building their brand, advertising and selling their work in the mainstream market. 

 

Q6. Share with our readers about your experiment period after the discovery period?


Travelling different states, learning new artforms, going through with the cycle of pause, quit, restart, I discovered myself sad definitely explored best of me. Today I feel satisfied and matured because of my experiences. There is no fear of failure or competition. Self growth is the best confidence which anyone has to achieve to be the best version. For me, self growth is about new and enriching experiences.

 

Q7. How have you empowered other people?


As an artist we have so much power to help others. But first you have to find within.  I believe, women have some extra strength something magical. I use my artworks to portray that side to the world. I empower the women to see within so that they can get the best of themselves. As a Hindu I believe SITA is in every woman,  and the Sita in me always pushes me to shake the existence of Shakti. 

Empowering others is also about being able to give back to the society and I try to do my part by taking art classes for specially-abled children.

  

Q8. What are your future plans? Or now what is your vision for next five years?


 I would love to have a solo exhibition in the future, along with having my own art gallery! I also plan on learning more folk arts and stay connected to my culture, and help more people through art.

 

Q9. How would you advice/suggest new artists/entrepreneurs who want to start & sustain?


My advice is to be authentic, original and passionate with your works. Compete with yourself.  Be a learner throughout and upgrade yourself with the technology too which is very much needed in the current time. Be patient with your work and never stop learning and experimenting.
