‘The singing I like best is when I sing’ ……These words by Mart Rubin stood absolutely true when we came across this fearless, never give up kind of artist who creates masterpieces out of anything & everything. Rashi Kohli Bajaj, it is!!! We recently came across her Instagram profile & since then we are hooked to it. She certainly sings to the tunes of her unique form of distressed art. The countless makeovers of old furniture pieces on her page showcase amazing before-after transformations & they have totally rolled us over. A self taught artist turned into a creative entrepreneur, Rashi runs her own workshop studio in Gurugram, where she creates the magic with her own hands on various forms of furniture, wall art & home decor accessories.

Another DiY enthusiast who has won us over is the incredible Kolkata based artist Noopur. If there is a boss of Acrylics then we would love to crown her with that tag. We love the way she uses acrylic paints in her projects and makes lovely daily use objects. She credits her passion for art to her mother & feels acrylics & clay modelling are her strengths. While following her engineering career she balances life through art & has turned her hobby into profession.
Her artwork on tables, chairs, cups, plates & other daily objects is loved a lot & is favourite among her clients. She recently collaborated with an Amsterdam based clothing brand Scotch & Soda & painted some amazing hats which have been the talk of the town for a while.

Her passion for home decor was sensed by her husband and he pushed her into this creative field and since then there has been no looking back for her.

She claims that Mosaic art is her forte and we love the way she has up-cycled simple mirrors through this form of art. We also love her decoupage DiYs and how she has remodeled small kitchenware items. You can check all the steps & details of these makeovers here.
Siddiqa proudly boasts of the basic concept of her work as Recycle, Reuse, Re-purpose & we can’t agree more on how important it is to spread the awareness on wasting less and making more in today’s era.
