Artist Statement – Lucy Tolkunova
I always loved drawing; from a simple line drawing to the most detailed photorealistic one. There is something in holding a pencil or charcoal and hearing the sound it makes as I move it on paper… something calming, relaxing… sound of an artwork being created. Each one of my artworks has a part me, it reflect me at the moment in time when I worked on that piece, it tells a story through stokes of a pencil on paper.

About the Artist
Sudeep Kumar is a local area artist, living in Frisco, TX.
Art for him is like a meditation, a silent conversation with self. On one hand, his work is either capturing the energy/mood of a place or event and presenting it to the audience to have them connect to the subject more closely as if its an integral part of their life. On the other hand, its a portrait of human emotions underneath our daily struggle for survival or mundane day to day activities. In today’s world of technological advancement, he feels we as a species are losing touch with our surroundings, our environment, our fellow human beings. The real connection or intimacy is missing. That’s what he tries to present to the audience and have them take a step back from their busy life and explore their surroundings fully. He uses charcoal, ink pen, or watercolor to create this artwork and try to use minimum media/material to keep them simple without impacting the message they convey.
Since last more than a decade he has been painting, drawing, sketching, teaching, exhibiting, learning and inspiring the community. He is also a Faculty of Art of Living foundation, teaching meditation and breathing technique for overall well-being for all individuals.
