Basant Soni

Vasundhara Mitra

Basant Soni is basically a Mechanical Engineer and an Artist trained from J. J. School of Art. Art is inherited from his father, renowned musician and painter Sundarlal Soni. Considering his creativity and deep aesthetic sense, he encouraged him in drawing and painting in addition to his studies. He intended to do something new, which has not been done so far in the field of art. He discovered the entire source as “only organic materials”. Lastly this way he dedicated himself to nature, keeping in mind why art could not be made from natural sources i.e. waste of plants and trees (Dried flowers, leaves, barks of vegetables etc. on canvas of bark of palm tree). That’s how his journey starts with organic art. He is an’Eco-Friendly artist’.
