Artwork created by Saswati Chinmayee, a student of class 10 at Apeejay School, Panchsheel Park, related to academic integrated learning (AIL), has been selected for the United Nations calendar for 2021.

Chinmayee was informed by her Art teacher Harveen Chopra about the competition which was open to every school in Delhi. Only 24 AIL artworks were selected and Chinmayee’s artwork was featured on the opening page of the calendar.

Seeing her artwork printed in the UN calendar was a moment of immense pride for the budding artist. Chinmayee chose modern tribal art as her theme with Worli patterns of triangles and circles. In this manner, she assimilated maths and history together.

For the uninitiated, Worli is a form of tribal art which has its origins in Maharashtra.

However, the focal point of her artwork was her unique perspective of using Worli patterns in a colourful background. Speaking about her new perspective, Chinmayee said, “Art is about innovation and creating something new. One generally sees Worli patterns in white colour with black backgrounds. However, using it in a colourful background, was an enjoyable and new experience for me.”

Chinmayee’s usage of Worli art in the painting gave her artwork a 3-Dimensional effect.

Chinmayee loves to paint natural sceneries and painting for her is a spontaneous creative decision and expression. 

“Art is about innovation and creating something new.”
