A bunch of my new art was added onto {www.floatingcanvas.co/artist/rheagupte.html} last month. If any of you would like to have my artwork in your spaces and homes, do take a look at them on the above website. You can purchase these through affordable monthly instalments making art accessible to more people. In case you’d like to buy these outright, write to me at gupte.rhea@gmail.com. I will be adding on more to the shop soon, lots of dreamy pastels coming up. And yes, the Escape On An Aeropoane series is on there too! ———————————————————————— #buyart #artwork #digitalart #contemporaryart #digitalartist #pastel #pastelart #dreamyart #art #flowers #sellart #artist #artforeverybody #arte

A digital artwork from last year which I am planning to expand into a series soon. ^_^ I recently saw a few Instagram stories put up by a few people I follow where they asked how much time their followers spend on Instagram daily. The answers ranged from 10 minutes to an alarming 10 hours. (How is that even possible?) Is Instagram enabling work or are we enabling Instagram to make more money by simply being mindlessly active on this platform? I have personally enjoyed building a small community here but not at the cost of my daily goals and what I wish to accomplish. I usually set aside about 5 hours a week to figure out what work and thoughts I want to share, what I want to write, portion out time to write back to people who write to me and of course to browse through and support all the talented people I follow. Having a time guideline helps me not end up getting swallowed up by the stream of content, no matter how thought provoking and inspiring, and to move on to the other aspects of my life and being. Overall I also want to reduce my phone usage to just an hour a day on weekdays (excluding personal and work calls - including Instagram, meditation, texting friends and family, playing games etc) and on weekends to fifteen minutes maximum. If you feel this is something that might add value to your lives and want to join me in this or your version of this, let’s stay in touch and motivate each other, only in our stipulated time. ^_^ ———————————————————————— #digitalartwork #flowerart #pastelart #arte #artwork #contemporaryart #contemporaryartist #digitalartist #happyart #flowers #artseries #carnations #dreamy

I was commissioned to photograph a story which explores Goa through my eyes. Goa, beyond expansive beaches and vast green fields is a kaleidoscope of wondrous colours and architectural detail. Shingled rooftops, tiled nameplates and swaying clotheslines give a personality to these streets beyond mere aesthetics. Having a completely open brief, I decided to put the focus on capturing windows as a way into the lives lived inside them. Thank you for having me on this project @stylistjoet and @mylittlecupboard and giving me the opportunity to walk by myself with my camera to create some of my favourite travel portraits till date. ———————————————————————— #travelphotography #travel #travelaesthetics #goa #windows #architecture #travelphotographer #india #colours #aesthetics #minimalism #window #goan #colourpalettes #streetphotography #travelportraits

Today I’d like to ask you to share, if you’re comfortable, something you have learnt from your grandparents or older people in general. My grandparents were a treasure trove of learning for me. From my grandfather I learnt to be a disciplinarian. Even post his retirement he followed a schedule which included daily exercise, reading and writing time, a systematic chore schedule and a daily nimbu pani (lemonade) break. From my grandmother I learnt to tidy and use reading as ‘me’ time. Way before Marie Kondo, my grandmother would make sure that every part of her life was sorted and tidy, from maintaining accounts to making sure every object in the house had its own home. Every afternoon, she would lie down for about half an hour and indulge in reading time just for herself and as a way to relax. Someday I would enjoy writing down everything they have passed on to me through their teachings and simply their existence in my life. I enjoy shooting portraits of elderly people as their eyes communicate so much wisdom and depth, I wish I had shot portraits of my grandparents too. This is a portrait of Mrs. Braganza from the beautiful Braganza-Menezes House in Chandor, Goa shot for @cntravellerindia.———————————————————————— #portrait #portraiture #portraitphotography #people #photographingpeople #photography #grandparents

I realised a couple of years ago that being busy is not a badge of honour. One is busy when they aren’t able to fill time themselves but when things take over their time. Living your time lushly, fully is when one cleanly places everything in the day within calm pockets of time. No matter if the entire day is filled with things to do, you go seamlessly from one task to the other with a feeling of fullness and that of ‘having’ enough time. That’s how I like to live life and consciously work towards making it happen every single day. I applied this thought process to the latest volume I conceptualised for 400 THINGS. With 400 Treasures, we want to take a step back and look at the world as if time wasn’t passing but was present for us to enjoy, to make time for art and to take time for ourselves. This volume is about celebrating labours of love created through solemn passages of time, each one made with painstaking care, minute detail and superior craftsmanship. Each one, truly a treasure.  Creative Direction, Styling & Conceptualisation by @rhea.gupte Photography by @rachelsantosphoto Hair & Makeup by @anuritachandrappa Model @devdweltz at @animacreatives Product Curation by @divya._.hegde Client @400_things ———————————————————————— #artdirection #fashionstyling #aesthetic #minimalism #stilllife #colourpalette #fashioncampaign #fashionecommerce #ethicalfashion #slowfashion #casting #creativedirection #creativedirector

I feel being creative is in how you lead your life. In the food you cook daily, in the errands you run, in the type of problem solving you do, in the life decisions you make, in the way you think. Creativity is creative thinking, thinking differently and thinking beyond the norm. It is not restricted to what is traditionally associated with art in terms of being a painter, sculptor or doing arts and craft, it is and can be in every occupation, every profession and in every life.

Five of my selected artworks were purchased a few months back to be part of the beautiful interiors of the Raj Bhavan in Mumbai. This is an initiative by @floatingcanvascowith the government of Maharashtra to bring more art into government offices, estates as well as public spaces. As an artist, it feels wonderful to have something you put life into, living and breathing in the lives of others, giving them peace of mind or food for thought. :) ———————————————————————— #stilllife #artwork #artprint #photoart #fineart #fineartphotography #minimalism #coral #minimalart #arte #artinindia #stilllifephotography #arte #livingcoral #livingcoral2019 #buyart #buyartonline

I’m glad to see this campaign resonated with so many of you. I have several explorations to do and ideas to convert into imagery around this thought and concept, which I started working on two years ago. This is one series which I have truly let breathe and grow, without rushing and while constantly educating myself on the subject of ethical fashion. I look forward to continuing on this journey and creating more. So happy to see this work featured on @thelissome{www.thelissome.com} I have highlighted a few excerpts from the interview I was a part of along with @nivismurthy, the founder of IKKIVI. If you happen to read all the way to the bottom you will see a guest appearance by my Mum as she wrote a comment on the feature which I JUST saw.😅 IKKIVI - an Indian Winter - 2018 Campaign Concept & Art by @rhea.gupte Client @ikkiviofficial Featured garments by @twofold_store, @chokhi.chorri, @akashi.clothing all sourced from @ikkiviofficial ———————————————————————— #digitalart #contemporaryart #slowfashion #ethicalfashion #ethicalthreads #sustainablefashion #sustainableclothing #consciousconsumer #campaign #slowfashioncampaign #shopslow #consciousfashion #indiandesigners #indiantextiles

Can clothes emote? This is something I have contemplated all my life. As somebody who started her journey in fashion attracted to its frivolity, then to creativity and then to the art and ethics of it, this question has haunted me. Can clothes really tell stories?  Through this campaign I tried to portray clothes with emotions; as isolated creatures, as vulnerable souls, as wanderers and narrators, as lovers and as friends. As pieces of value to be kept and not thrown.

Wanderer from my Wandering Mind series. ——————————————————————— I see myself as a wanderer with a purpose. All through life I have wandered through many paths, some which I have stuck to, some which I have left behind. From my wanderings I have realised how important it is to let go off paths you outgrow, to have the courage to follow new paths you might love, to have the dedication to work for paths which challenge you, to take on paths with you those close to your heart. From my wanderings I have realised how full of love I am for the act of creating and for the people in my life. My life is filled to the brim with both and here I am experiencing it. Grateful to be able to wander on. ——————————————————————— #digitalart #art #contemporaryart #artwork #minimalart #minimalphotography #sea #arte #flowerpeople #bythesea #artseries #adobe

Any non-profit organisations in need of a photographer? I’d like to block a part of my dates next year to volunteer with non-profit organisations as a documentary and portrait photographer. A few subjects I am interested in are ethical fashion, animal welfare, environmental conservation, human rights. I’m happy to learn about and contribute my time in other fields/subject matters too. If you or some organisation you know might be interested, please write to me at gupte.rhea@gmail.com. I’d love to chat over email.

This month I decided to never say ‘nothing’ when somebody asks me a question on the lines of what’s going on or what’s happening. I decided to give an answer with as many details of what’s going on, depending on the closeness and kind of relationship I have with the person. This decision has brought me closer to all the people I have spoken to, in many ways that a ‘nothing’ or ‘not much’ could never bring. It has started off conversations and had people share details about their life with me too. I am very glad I thought of doing this. It has brought me so much love. Sharing this warmth with a series of sunsets I photographed during my travels across in India. Hope the fuzzy feeling reaches you too. ———————————————————————— #photography #landscapes #india #travel #sunsets #photoart #travelphotography #huntgram #traveller #worldplaces #travelandlife #photographyeveryday #canon_photos #landscapelovers #beautifulplaces

I dream better with my eyes open. ^_^ Brand new artworks from my Escape On An Aeroplane series 2 are complete! I am excited to expand this series with these rich, dreamy tones and vibrant hues. Here we have Castle In The Sky, Iro, Faraway in that order. All of my art prints are available for purchase on request over email. PS: Iro was created for a @wordpressdotcom plugin called Iro created by @prtksxna. This is the first time I have used my art to contribute to an open source project, I hope to have many more. ———————————————————————— #digitalartworks #digitalart #photoart #photoartwork #printsforsale #sky #clouds #contemporaryart #surrealart #photography #arte #art #skyscape #makemoreart #artdaily #contemporarydaily

I don’t know a single woman in my group of friends including myself who has not been a victim of either abuse or molestation of some form or the other in all the years we have lived. It is empowering to us all that so many women are coming out with their emotionally and physically traumatic experiences by sharing their stories with complete strangers and with their own families for the first time. While a section of people have risen as champions of this movement, there are those who have been mocking it and debating its relevance by belittling its larger meaning by citing irrelevant instances and imaginary motives. For that part of society, I urge you to not do so. Firstly understand the problem in its entirety, empathise with the voices you are hearing, take action by rectifying toxic behaviour you see around yourselves, learn what constitutes as sexist and misogynistic behaviour and stand up to it. It is in how women are spoken about, how they are treated. A lot of this behaviour can be blanketed as socially acceptable due to how long it has been around. But it is not. Start with smaller actions like if a person says ‘What’s the point of a person talking about abuse which happened 10 years ago?’ Explain to them that there is a point, that it is important, that one can talk about it anytime they feel the need or the strength to talk about it. I spent two hours this weekend explaining to my parents what the #metoomovement is about. They knew of it through mainly news media where it’s unfortunately portrayed more like a circus than anything of consequence. I feel it was the best way for me to spend that time, as, by the end of the conversation I could see a change in their outlook and the understanding of why they can never ever take this subject lightly or forgo the opportunity to speak about its importance in their friend and family circles. Take this time especially with people close to you to talk about this as not everybody completely understands. Urge them to educate themselves. The more people with awareness talk about it, the more change in minds it will lead to. I want to also talk about the statements released by @dsgnfbrc and @taxifabric. {continued}

I always tend to get a lot more focused towards the end of the year. I feel like revisiting all my goals set in the beginning of the year and evaluate how I am doing so far and what I can do next/better. I have two things I have set myself to do this month apart from ongoing projects, to update my portfolio with the twenty odd projects which are simply lying on my hard drives plus, working on consolidating all my writings; across essays, poems, thought pieces in one place on my portfolio too. It’s all scattered at the moment across scraps of papers, diaries and in other folders. If any of you want to spend some time reading my thoughts or looking through my recent work, it will all be up by the end of this month. Would love to know what you are looking to get yourself to do before this month ends. If you haven’t thought of anything, perhaps think up something now and let’s motivate each other. ^_^ Featured image is a specimen of something shot several months ago but hasn’t been documented. :) Photography, Creative Direction, Styling | @rhea.gupte Model | @archanaakilkumar Hair & Makeup, Set Design | @nummmzzz Client | @400_things Styling Credits | All products from www.400-things.com {@thesummerhouse @oceedeeshoes @scarletsplendour} ———————————————————————— #fashionphotography #fashioncampaign #green #greeninspiration #bottlegreen #minimalism #garden #darkaesthetics #aesthetic #photography #artdirection #styling #fashionart #newwork

A blurry sneak peek at something I have been working on, over the last couple of months. I have always been interested in providing complete aesthetic solutions to the clients I work with. Creating the right kind of website forms a huge part of this experience. A lot of times while creating images, it is natural for me to see them in a particular layout and imagine the best form of presentation for them. I have only been able to do this with my own website, and if you have followed my journey so far, you will know that I have redesigned it over and over. It still remains a work in progress to this day, in fact, at the moment, is a bit of an incomplete mess. Anyway, without digressing further, I’m excited to present a little peek at my first website that I created for a client. I had so much fun making this and there is a LOT more left to do before it goes live, but I just wanted to share something new I have been learning and developing as a skill in its nascent stages. I’m eager to get better at this and make websites for selected clients who align with my ethos in the near future - sustainable brands, NGOs, art + creativity led portals etc. The website showcased is IKKIVI ZINE, a slow living + slow fashion online magazine and will be launching later this month. ^_^ Photography, Styling, Creative Direction | @rhea.gupte Hair and makeup | @anuritachandrappa Model | @tanvii_13 Client | @ikkiviofficial Styling Credits | All garments from IKKIVI.com {@pushpakvimman | @sillage.in | @amortela} Website designed by @rhea.gupte developed by @grandworksco (Launching soon!) ^_^ ———————————————————————— #design #websitedesign #fashioneditorial #sustainablefashion #slowfashion #graphicdesign #pastel #mindfulfashion #pastelfashion #fashionphotography #minimal #minimalism
