We all have abundant talent, but sometimes; the lack of confidence departs us from achieving our goals. In one of his interviews, Amshu Chukki passes a motivational message; “I like to work with fiction that originates from spaces. Sometimes, when a space has stopped existing, or has changed entirely, it exists only in the minds of people, or in fiction.” Chukki strongly influences people to continue dreaming, even if the Universe starts changing the scenarios in life.
Chukki is inspiring people by his thoughtful and innovative ideas of storytelling through video art. He is a great artist who expresses his emotions through painting than his words and gestures. Although, I am not really good at art, having an interest in sketching makes me relate to Chukki’s passion for these subjects.
Chukki has a different flair for painting. His style of videos, drawing, and painting cannot be copied or adapted easily. Despite the fact, that he still aims for high goals and does not consider himself successful, his fan following is amazing. Personally, I love his art and it only motivates me to focus on the better things in life. What can be better than bringing colors and adding emotions to your life through your art?
I remember painting is the first thing that we learn while we are enrolled for kindergarten. We are exposed to colors and there is a broad smile that brings glow on our face. Slowly, the smile fades as the color of money takes over our real fun of life. I truly believe that we all must revise those childhood memories and bring new by coloring with kids, at least once during weekends.
It will be unwise for me to share bigger talks about the field that I do not excel at, but, as an art lover I can comment that artists like Amshu Chukki bring a reformation in people’s life by their thoughts. The life of an artist is not as easy as it seems. It is a mind game and sometimes, the mind plays with you.
In life, if you ever face any challenging situation, start putting it on a piece of paper. Your thoughts on paper look more beautiful and simple than what you consider keeping them in mind. Trust me, the solution is just a pen away!
