Verve collaborates with Audemars Piguet to celebrate five women who have crafted their singular route to success

With a penchant for murals and installations, she firmly believes that “art sets us apart from other species….”

Art is more than the perception of beauty and the intention of the creator; it is about interpretation. My passion lies in creating objects that can be touched and have dimensions.

I am influenced by artist Jackson Pollock’s canvases and artist-sculptor Henry Moore’s style. My favourite work is Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling.

It’s been an eventful year. I have completed six art projects including one at Wadia Hospital, Mumbai. I also launched my limited-edition art scarves in unique designs which celebrate women.

My drawing board is the most important part of my workplace, which is more like a laboratory than
a studio.

I always wanted to give back to society. One cannot turn a blind eye to the situation the women and children in India are facing. I started by conducting art classes for Pratham and later launched the Rouble Nagi Art Foundation.

My most challenging project is Paradise Garden, India’s largest mixed-media mosaic mural. I also enjoyed making Lovers — a six-ton sculpture carved out of a single marble piece.

I believe that the inspiration to create something beautiful comes from life.
