Find Your Own Unique Voice in the Art to Stand Out in Order to Be a Successful Artist - Nrupam



I believe in always challenging myself by doing innovative and unique work.
I consider myself as my own biggest competition and always try to do better than my last time every time.

1. Tell us more about your background and journey.

I am Nrupam. I am a mural artist, I design and paint huge scale walls and canvases. I have painted more than 40 walls and a similar amount of canvases of huge scales. 

I have worked with many leading architects in India.  It started in 2013 when tried different jobs as an interior designer. I was unable to find work satisfaction.  Working under someone does not give you enough creative freedom. 

My creative hunger left unfulfilled and I left the idea of working under someone and decided to do something on my own. II always had a great interest in art. It used to fascinate me. Though I knew nothing about the modern age art, in fact, any art as such. 

I just knew I enjoyed creating. And that’s it. I was at home for two and a half years,  refining my skills without any external influence at that time, no internet Just me and my material.


2. Who is your favourite artist and why?

This may sound little weird but honestly, I am my favourite artist and I
have fair reasons to do that. 

As I am a self-taught artist and found my own unique style over years of practice. I never compared myself to any other artist. 

I kept myself detached from the possibility of being influenced by any art or artist. I still have the least idea about different artists and art history for the same reason. I want to keep myself original and pure. 

But yet, if I have to name one, it should be my mom, Zarana Padia. She is an amazing artist, and I grew up watching her Art. She is my favourite.


3. Is it a financially stable career?

Definitely yes, but it takes time. It needs a lot of patience and dedication
to get monitory rewards for hard work. Work tirelessly until your work speaks for itself. 

Artists must have their own unique style to stand out. That comes with nonstop practice. It’s a very enjoyable journey. You really need to focus on your skills, to constant improvisation and enjoy what you do. 

The more you enjoy, the more you practice, the more you practice more you learn, and people notice that. Your work does your marketing. 

When your work shows enough confidence and uniqueness, you will start getting business. Once the artist sets the parameters of the quality work they do, they can value their art fairly and people are always ready to spend for uniqueness.


4. Where do you get inspired to create art?

My family is my biggest cheerleader. I get the constant motivation to work
from them.

And for my art, I am a self-inspired artist. 


5. What kind of book do you prefer to read?

I read a lot of business and self-development books, but my go-to, all-time favourite book is Harry Potter series. I am a huge potter head. (you 
will find a lot of posts about Harry potter on my Instagram page as well)


6. What piece of advice would you like to give to the future aspirants?

Be original and unique. Find your own unique voice in the art to stand out in order to be a successful artist. And keep working until you get where you want to be. 

I believe in always challenging myself by doing innovative and unique work.
I consider myself as my own biggest competition and always try to do better than my last time every time.
