An eminent artist with international recognition and is also a team member of ‘Indian Art Promoters’ (KalaaSpandan Art Fair).
A master painter, a colourful persona, an artist with a difference, a painter who always has good in mind for the artists and works towards their development and promotion. Sonjaye Mauryais an inspiring story of a self-taught artist, a businessman who shut down all his business and decided to follow his passion for art and to dedicate his life to art and artists. A story of rise to success in a short span 0f three and half years with dedication, devotion, proper planning and understanding of business, marketing, branding etc. He is also a photographer, a traveler, a writer and a poet.
A childhood filled with drawing and painting, winning numerous awards, including prestigious President and Prime Minister of India’s awards, SonjayeMaurya graduated from Sir J. J. Institute of Applied Art in Commercial Art and Photography. Bringing imaginations alive on canvas has always been a consummating passion for him. His constant companion always have been art in various forms. Lost in day to day hustle bustle of life this companionship was finally rekindled one day.
SonjayeMaurya made his first painting in the month of December, 2014. And thus started a new journey. It has not been easy for him to take this drastic decision and make another beginning as an artist at that age. He had a family to look after. And in general artists are not understood by family people and the society at large. But his wife and son have been very strong pillars of support.
He had no formal training in fine art (Painting), nor had someone to guide him. But as he was determined enough to make a mark as an Art Iconhe studied on his own, painted and went on improvising. And in a short span of 5 years he made a niche of importance for himself in the creative world. In his words, “How I wish, I had been mentored and had a God Father. But I was not that fortunate.” This made him take the step to help fellow artists, in all possible ways by guiding and promoting them.
His works have a mysterious quality... a magical touch that makes them stand apart from the works of other contemporary artists. Everything that he paints has a deep meaning and message in it. May it be Buddha or even if he is painting fishes or a landscape. His works are many a times a transformation from realistic to abstract and vice versa.
He deals with artistic perceptions about the human feelings and the different realms of life. His works explore the artistic transition from traditional to modern in vibrant colourpalettes. His paintings reflect on fantasies and dreams.
His works are a result of vast experimentation with medium, style and techniques, and in-depth study of the subject. Many of his works are neither realistic representation nor abstract. They can’t be categorised to any specific school of art.
He is also a part of growth and development of art scene. His works are entirely different from others with sensitivity and lyricism of poetry. He understands rhythm and harmony. His concentration is on creative pursuit rather than commercial aspect. There is no diversion of mind.
He also works extensively on subjects related to ‘Spirituality’ and ‘Buddhism’, and themes that help us elevate life.
SonjayeMaurya is also one of the pioneer Indian Contemporary artists working on ‘Buddha’.
He is a true friend of artists of all age group. He is caring and friendly. He is gentle and knowledgeable. Any artist from anywhere can approach him for guidance and he obliges. He is very calm and soft spoken person, is easily accessible to all artists established or aspiring and respects their feelings. He spends time with artists and encourage them. He tells artists to work sincerely and not to be part of the rat race.
