Supriya Shekhar Shinde`s Personal Statement
Sculpture is defined as a manually crafted specimen displaying beautiful artistic features and serving a specific purpose but in reality sculpture is much more than this definition. Sculpting is supposed to be the most difficult form of art. It is live and expressive due its dimensions. And we can understand extent of skill and command on a material required for creating a live sculpture.

Sculptures by supriya shekhar shinde



Supriya Shekhar Supriya has art in her geans. Her father runs a workshop where Ganesh Idols are manufactured. Mrs.Supriya used to help her father from an early age. Surroundings in which children grow play a vital role in shaping their future. Mrs.Supriya followed in the foot steps of her father. Her sculpting skills were honed at a very young age. The qualities of an artist were imbibed and she was destined to become a sculptor herself. But unaware of her skills and inclination, her father was pleasantly surprised when she complete painting of Throning Ceremony of Shivaji Maharaj done on canvas with oil in figurative style, when she was in the 11th standard. Details, finish, colour combination and size of this painting is on par with any mature artist. This painting amazed her father.

Her father immediately took a decision. He got her enrolled in the art school in Narayan Gaon for foundation course. Her life took a new turn but for a very short span. Within an year of her admission to art school, she got married to Mr. Shekhar Shinde and became a full-time housewife. She gave birth to a baby son name is Samarth. Even while doing daily chores at house, she was restless. She was craving for pursuing her passion - art. Shekar felt her urge and started his own workshop of Ganesh Idols. After three long years break she took admission for Sculpting in Bharati Vidyapeeth at Pune. At that time she was the only female student in the class.

Like any other careerist woman, she was doing a balancing act. Shouldering family responsibilities, running workshop and simultaneously attending classes. She handled every front with excellent capability. Her dedication and grit has brought success. Her teacher in art school, Mr. Sunil Deshpande was powerhouse of support for her. He not only guided her, honed her skills but encouraged her in her testing time. He advised her to work in Realistic style as anatomy was her stronghold. Right advise at right time and by the right person can change your life for better. Mrs.Supriya is grateful to Mr. Deshpande for his advice and guidance.

Mrs.Supriya believes that every event, every occasion tells you something. Even if they are routine chores, they have a story to tell. Every human reaction is an expression of certain feelings. We experience love, affection and caring, warmth every moment. This is real. And can be expressed only in realistic style of sculpture.

It is said that behind every successful man is a woman. In Mrs.Supriya`s case, it is a man, her husband Shekhar. Shekhar is the first afficionado and a critic too. Shekhar`s dearest dream is Mrs.Supriya wins national an international approval, accolades and awards. She should set new benchmarks in the field of sculpting.
