Painters on Mecho

Aambrosiya Ido
Painting
(Kathmandu, Nepal)

Born in 1989, Amrit has been painting from the age of 12. This innate passion continued to develop throughout his formative years, when in 2003 he received a 1 year scholarship to attend Atom Model HIgher Secondary School as a Special Arts Student. After finishing this course, he attended Oxford Academy for formal training where he studied anatomical drawing, life drawing and print making. He exhibited his work at Oxford Academy in 2008. During 2003 to 2008 he had a small studio in his house, selling most of the work he produced during that time.

When you paint your picture, you realize your worth

From 2008 to 2010 he worked in Kathmandu, then travelled throughout Western Nepal painting, and developing an appreciation for the Nepalese landscape. This has resulted in the development of a style of painting that breaks from the traditional approach, where a scene is reproduced, to one where the feeling and essence of the landscape is captured.

From 2010 onwards, he travelled throughout the countryside, working and painting in different villages and cities. This period saw him move away from the predominantly landscape subject matter, and move toward human and wildlife studies. Amrit’s style of painting also explored impressionistic, realism and more abstractionist styles during this time.

Later, he had four successful private shows in Kathmandu representing the work that had been produced during his time in the countryside. He settled down in Kathmandu in 2017 where now he paints full-time.

His style of painting has been described as eclectic in the past, but current work has settled into more of a crossover between impressionism and abstractionism. Amrit describes his work as ‘Essence’, where he explores the inspiration and fundamental ideas he draws from the subject matter. His landscape subjects become a relationship between the animate and inanimate, where the two co-exist, forming and shaping each other. Moreover, the colours used are more expressive of what he feels and how he interprets those feelings.

Saskia has also designed and produced a range of candle art titled ‘Wax Babes’ featuring old fashioned vogue-style pin-up girls on the candles.

Saskia grew up in West Africa and travels back there frequently, where she finds inspiration for her work that often reflects the great divide between underdeveloped countries and the western world. She also likes to incorporate politically motivated messages in her art and explore the contrast between industrial versus organic.

Saskia has been involved with Manly CollectiV, a group of Manly based artists dedicated to bringing the work of artists in a new way into the community. The CollectiV’s first major project was the transformation of the Manly Arts Gallery frontcourt in 2002 during the Manly Arts Festival (Illuminati 2002 – Into the Blue). Saskia’s work was also exhibited as part of the Manly Art Gallery Frameworks project in 2002, a community project that saw artists works framed on external walls of buildings around Manly.
