Alefiyah Raja.
 Alefiyah Raja.

1 As an artist, how important is it for you to be creative?
Creativity is the very essence of my existence. 

2 What are you working on currently? 
A new collection of resin artworks, as well as a series of floral abstracts for Art Flute and I am thankful to Padmaja Nagur for helping and guiding me.


3 If you ever got a tattoo, what would it be?
It would be two words - Ya Ali. The phrase is used to draw courage from the strength of Ali and it is the source of my strength as well. 

4 One Artist whose works you admire and why?
Steve Driscoll, his visual perception and play of vibrant colours is unmatched.

5 Your best creation?
Much like Behrman from O Henry’s Last Leaf, my best creation is yet to come. But so far, I would say my painting titled Eternity is my favourite.

6 If not an artist, what would you be?
The host of a travel show. That way I would get to travel the world!

7 An outfit that always comes to your rescue? 
A pair of blue jeans and a kurta. Never lets me down.

8 If you could be one fictional character who would you be and why?
Alice in Wonderland, for sure. Who wouldn’t want to go on an adventurous journey of self-discovery?

9 What is the one thing you have always wanted to do?
Travel the world and capture the beauty of nature in memory.

10 Your biggest pet peeve?
People sitting around shaking their leg, makes me wonder if they want to use the restroom!
