Since childhood Aastikya always had interest in drawing, colouring and making the most random and queer things possibly. He even got appreciation for the same, getting praises for his drawing skills by elders, my fellow classmates or friends. He kept doing it as a hobby till much later in High School. However, everything changed as he was exposed to Pixel Art and the world of animation. From there he kept diving deeper and deeper to explore Illustration, Visual Development. To learn the foundation of drawing he moved to Ahmedabad and met a Bengali Artist who later had quite an influence on his artwork. To improve further, along with his growing fondness for Fine Arts and as learning from the best, as fate would have it, he moved to Florence, Italy to learn realistic Figure Drawing and Landscape Painting. Nothing has been the same since then as nothing was ever enjoyed as much as Landscape Painting and Figure Drawing. His ambition is to establish himself as one of the Finest Landscape Painters and Visual Artists of India and contribute to the art-world.
