FireShot Screen Capture #127 - 'Artist @ lanishuartiste' - lanishuartiste_com_her-visionNatasha Chadha Bhambri ‘nishu’ is a self-inspired and extremely motivated individual. Etymologically speaking, people with this name have a deep inner desire to create and express themselves … They also yearn to have beauty around them … They experience a wealth of creative new ideas, and have the ability to implement these ideas with efficiency and determination. They tend to be courageous and sometimes aggressive. For anyone who has known nishu, this is not news.

The proud mother of two young boys – Jai and Lakshya, and wife of proud Mr. Vikas Bhambri, nishu is committed to family and friends. nishu has always been inspired, innovative, expressive, creative and determined. Her commitment and depth on the personal front is reflected in her work also.

Her works, irrespective of the theme, represent ideas that inspire thinking and introspection. A great deal of thought goes behind every frame and it has a story of its own to be unfolded.

Nishu’s work celebrates womanhood in a manner that is reassuring and looking within that can be expressed in the words of Elisabeth Elliot “We are women, and my plea is Let me be a woman, holy through and through, asking for nothing but what God wants to give me, receiving with both hands and with all my heart whatever that is.” nishu has captured the essence of Nationalism in a way that is aspiring as well as inspiring. Nationalism is inspired by the highest ideals of the human race, satyam [the true], shivam [the god], sundaram [the beautiful]. Nationalism in India has … roused the creative faculties which for centuries had been lying dormant in our people. Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose has laid the idea so beautiful and they have been brought to life on the canvas by nishu.
Nationalism is not a theory to be studied in the books of history that dates back to the era of British rule. It refers to all times where fight against oppression and injustice is the call. Her work is particularly relevant to today’s times in the light of demonic spirits plaguing the nation in the present. It awakens the people in a manner that sounds like a war cry in the form of colours on the palate and strokes on the canvas.

Nishu’s work on Nature is not seeing nature from a point of view of a spectator who is enthralled by the creation of almighty. It is feeling one with the nature, where it becomes difficult to tell what is inspiring whom. “You didn’t come into this world. You came out of it, like a wave from the ocean.
You are not a stranger here” said Alan Watts. – Trapti Rai.
