Artist, dreamer, abstract and color addict, Ishita Banerjee trained as a classical, fine artist, with a Bachelors in Fine Arts degree in Applied Arts and a Masters in Fine Arts (MFA) in Communication Design. Her art is an assimilation of life experiences, merging imagination and memory to create vivid and bold abstracts, people, faces and non-traditional portraiture, rendered in strong color, motifs and details.
Working in the mixed media techniques, Ishita uses acrylics, inks, watercolor, pens, markers as well as digital textures and paintings. Straddling surfaces of paper, canvas, illustration boards and drawing on the iPad with an Apple pencil, she likes to blend traditional methods of drawing with digital paintings.
Threading lines, textures and markings in her work tells the story of the passage of time, the inter-connections of forms, both tangible and abstract.
Ishita lives, loves, creates and works in Montreal, Canada, using locally sourced materials, Canadian made products, eco-friendly printing techniques, while consciously trying to reduce her carbon footprint by eliminating wasteful packaging and synthetic materials.
