Hey guys, we welcome you back in our artist series. It’s fun to read the story of artists who are doing so well, creating some masterpieces and making this world more beautiful. Today we have Nishan Faiz who is an engineer from Calicut and loves to create beautiful art.
So let’s hear it from Nishan.
1. Tell us something about yourself.
My name is NishanFaiz and I am from Calicut district of Kerala. I have completed B. Tech in Mechanical Engineering in the year 2018 and now I am searching for a job in designing to stay close from art as well to make a living.
2. How did your interest grow in the field of art?
Actually, for me, there is no perfect answer to this question. When I was in school I used to do drawings, drawing period was the most interesting subject for me. But when I went to secondary the subject of the drawing got eliminated. After my completion of studies, I again started my drawing classes and got involved in it. Firstly I started it as a hobby but later I got more involved. There is always a support system in your life so I got my support system of my best friend. As she was not much interested in drawings but she always used to tell me and motivate me to draw. This helped me to do as a passion and not just a hobby. My style got changed and the drawing was getting realistic feelings.
3. Who is your inspiration?
My father is my inspiration but in the case of art the only person who inspired me is my best friend AlfiyaYoonus. Let me tell you a short description of them. My father is my hero. I used to imitate him in most of the situation, as I was the captain of my motorsports team in my college where I used to imitate my father, as I know that he was a good leader which I used to see him from home. He used to take the quick decision in most situations.
He was the person who used to stand along with me in my worst situation. He used to motivate me; he used to give different ideas and suggestion for me in all my work like that there are many situations to explain. But when it comes to my best friend she always motivates to do my passion. I used to draw only beginners model, it is she who used to make me draw most of the pictures which I felt I can’t able to do. She was more confident than me, that it’s possible for me to draw all those pictures. She used to buy drawing materials for me. She was the person who told me to start page on Instagram.
4. Which is your favorite art style?
Photorealism is my favorite art. I used to draw the pictures by looking at photographs. I love to do pencil shading of photographs. Firstly I used to do draw only photos but later when I got interested I started to do pencil shading. Actually, I used to draw by looking in a photograph. I like to photos objects organs whatever it is using pencil shades, I try to make it more realistic as possible. I hadn’t gone to any class to learn how to draw. If I have any ability to draw, all that I gained is through practice.
5) What are your future plans?
I have a great interest in drawing but I don’t know how I can make that as a profession for me. If I got a chance to take a career as an artist I will definitely choose that. I hope this is a chance which is put in front of me by God. Also, I have planned to take the design field in engineering which is also an art with help of technology where we can be more creative.
6) Any advice for budding artists?
Stick your dream, work for that. There will always be failures; make it as a stone to strengthen the base of your ambition. It only through failure we can learn. Failure is there, only for those who try something new. So never be afraid of failure, just go on. Practice more to achieve your dreams. It may take time but one day will come which is yours.
