Deeply fascinated by nature and especially animals, Harshi Agarwal, a doodle artist from Jaipur, has created an art installation to spread awareness about wildlife co-existence. By creating doodle art relating to wildlife such as animals, trees, plants etc. on a car, Harshi has made a one-of-its-kind art installation. Aptly entitled ‘Accommodate’, the installation gives the message that the earth does not belong to human beings alone and there is a need to accommodate other species as well. The art installation is currently being exhibited at the Mayo Alumni Artists Group Exhibition in Mayo College in Ajmer till 26 November. The artist is also an alumnus of Mayo College Girls’ School.
Talking about her work and the objective behind it, Harshi Agarwal says: “Everyone should make a concerted effort to improve the dire situation that our planet is currently in. It can be through time, money, making lifestyle changes or even educating others. I use my art to depict both the beauty and the vulnerability of the natural world, raise awareness for conservation issues and encourage others to consider how they too can make a difference.”
It is worth noting that Harshi Agarwal is one of India’s first professional doodle artists. She is also an art entrepreneur and organizes art workshops and events. Her company ‘Brushes n Strokes has worked with several companies and organizations such as UNICEF, Asian Paints, Akshay Kumar Productions, Viacom 18 etc.
