Look at these intelligent line drawing illusions. We are unable to find the original artist Tango, but the artist deserves a huge applause for the creative thinking.
Filled with cuteness and good thoughts, her paintings speak its own language of awesomeness and a unique flavour of a kid’s hand behind every drawing. Meghna Unnikrishnan is a budding polymath from Chennai. This 10 year old girl excels in Drawing, Painting, Singing, Writing Poems & Short Stories and of course fond of playing games as well. Behold, she can dance Bharathanatiyam also.
She credits her parents for all her achievement and for being supportive of her in all possible ways. In fact their encouragement is the key to all her talents, she says. She has participated in various competitions of kids and won the recognitions.
We asked about the moment, when she had realized such painting skills in her? “I realized that I can draw well when my LKG teacher, Latha ma’m, told me to draw The National Flag. I drew it and coloured it perfectly and my teacher told my parents that I can draw nicely.” she answered. That Teacher’s little encouragement for a simple flag drawing has done the magic.
Now, Meghna loves to do abstract paintings of God Krishna, nature paintings, birds and animal paintings, still life paintings and much more. You can find a spectrum of genres of paintings on her blog. She has a list of ambitions to become an artist(To create Good paintings), a Bharatanatyam dancer(to dance Bharatanatyam nicely), an architect… And said “Need to decide which one to pursue :)”
What about studies? “Yes, of course I love to study. I get the general proficiency award every year.And I get the special achievement award for drawing every year from my school (The Schram Academy, Chennai). I won a laptop in a national spelling bee contest last year for being the topper.” says Meghna.
Her suggestion for other aspiring kids is “If you think that you can draw well, then go ahead, draw, draw and draw… Browse the internet for artists’ paintings and learn from their techniques. Practice will make you perfect.”
“Things that I miss now are beautiful original scenery, traditional art forms, clean and neat rivers, smoke-free roads and many more things which are damaged by humans. All these things are very rare now which could have made brought out good works by young children and also experienced artists.” she expressed her concern about the environmental issues we face.
She shared her gratitude to her family members, school, teachers, art teacher Mr. Rajendran of Dessin Academy, friends and all other people for encouraging her.
What we have shared here are a few of her works. You can find a lot on her blog www.meghnaunni.com
There is a lesson for all of us, the early we find the talents of kids and the early we encourage them, they will do wonders in the future. Every Teacher and Parents hold the responsibility equally in this aspect. There are many kids out there as talented and as unique as Meghna. Only thing is they need a recognition and a lot of encouragement. The rest is assured, their thirst will take them to reach greater heights.
We Propel Steps, wish Meghna all the best for her ambitions and love to see her excel in her efforts always.
Triangle Δ (3), Square (4), Pentagon (5), Hexagon (6), Heptagon(7), Octagon(8)… How long it can go?
A Megagon is a shape with 1,000,000 equal sides. Even if drawn at the size of the Earth, a regular megagon would be very difficult to distinguish from a circle.
How many you know before? How to draw a perfect polygon with 10 sides? Know more here… (To see how to draw them? Scroll down the table)
|Number of sides||Name of polygon||Picture|
|100||Regular Hectagon||Internal Angle 176.40°External Angle 3.60°|
|1000||Regular Chiliagon||A whole regular chiliagon is not visually discernible from a circle. The lower section is a portion of a regular chiliagon, 200 times as large as the smaller one, with the vertices highlighted.Internal Angle = 179.64°|
|10000||Regular Myriagon||Internal Angle = 179.96°|
|1,000,000||Regular Megagon||Even if drawn at the size of the Earth, a regular megagon would be very difficult to distinguish from a circle.Internal Angle = 179.99964°|

“A puddle can become a lake, a small crack in a cement wall can become a magnificent climb, a planter box can become a place for a child to play, and a shadow might be a tangible space for a few seconds a day”.
New Jersey based artist, Joe Iurato creates art using hand-cut paper and spray paint to make small wood cutout figures and placed in public spaces.
I use layers of hand cut paper and spray paint to create texture and form – a modern adaptation of an old-fashioned printing process. My art is nothing more than the exploration and documentation of personal experiences. The pieces form an abstract of my life. They are the questions I have, the conclusions drawn, the love, disgust, joy and sadness contained. Essentially, I paint what I know…or what I’m trying to understand. However big or small, the works are often created in public spaces and left to interact with the environment and community. Like life itself, the nature of public art is one of transience. Each piece mirrors the unpredictability of existence and hopes to establish an intimate connection with the viewer in the here-and-now.
