Born with an intrinsic talent and creativity, from a small town Rajgangpur in Odissa, Rakhi Baid started her art journey through paintings with varied subjects and themes. Her paintings are a way of expression of untold, withheld feelings. An avid Krishna devotee, Rakhi Baid paints the god regularly using unique composition, yet always employing universally adopted Krishna motifs. Be it traditional or contemperory art â€“ Lord Krishna offers endless inspiration. Being a self taught artist, Rakhi tries to freeze moments in time through her paintings. Her paintings bring out the yearning of the devotee in all its glory, evoking a sense of mystique, lingering moments of introspection and inspiration, a deep spiritual resting point and a feeling of shunyata - the point where the creator and the created become one.
