Meet our Judges
I am Ankit Jasmatiya, an artist based in Noida and passionate about pencils and mostly dry media as it gives me the freedom to work anywhere and anytime. Most of my artworks are based on portraits and my motive is to create the artistic expression of the face. I want to spread awareness towards art all over the world. To achieve this, I am uploading art tutorials on my YouTube channel where I have more than 3,28,000 subscribers, so that everyone can learn art. I usually work on graphite, charcoal and soft pastels. I worked on various methodology for achieving the portraiture like pencil measuring techniques, using light and shades, blocking method, subtraction method etc.
I am a Contemporary Artist currently based in Assam. Making Art has always been something I adored as a hobby, but it was after I had passed my 10th standard that I started to draw most of my time. I was experimenting with pencils a lot at that time, and soon it had become my favorite Art tool. I love making portraitures, and continue to specialise in that skill.
Achievements – Indian Art Contest Season 3 winner and some other State and National Contests like ’27 Art Point’, CreArts, National Art Platform, Aventine(AAU), Phoenix(JEC) etc.
