Urmi Roy Magoon

I always wanted to be a full time artist. After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Delhi Art College, India in 1996, it wasn't until 2016 that I started painting full time. I spent the intervening years in the booming IT industry as a Graphic Designer/UI UX expert working on several exciting projects and companies.

Travel is always inspirational for me and my family lived in Munich for a few years which helped me recharge my vision of being an artist.

I collaborated with two artists that I collaborated with were experienced artists in Munich to have my first show in 2018 in Munich.

As an artist and as a teacher I find myself in constant learning and practicing mode. I work in various mediums and really enjoy watercolors, gouache and oil paints. Recently, I find myself drawn to the printmaking process and I am teaching myself different dyes and techniques.

Artist Statement

My artwork is an expression of my point of view. Most often, to express my point I have to use more than one medium which I find extremely liberating. This also keeps me motivated and challenged at the same time. It's also a great opportunity to learn something new and refine my technique. I truly believe that just like any other profession and artist must learn throughout one's practice.

In my creative process, I do a lot of walking around towns and cities that I visit and/or live in and take lots of pictures. Then I deconstruct it down to its bones and focus only on the parts that interest me and then find a way to express that vision. This series is called #walkingthestreets

Ox in China Town: The Ox in China Town was absolutely grand this year (2021). In the angle it looks like the ox is looking forward even though the dark sky is looming overhead.
