Neelu Patel, from Ahmedabad is a trendsetter with each of her artifacts crafted from Paper-Machie. She is known to bring life to used pieces of newspapers through which, she uniquely crafts marvelous paintings complimented with her proficiency in color blending and superficial effects.
Her mastery in converting waste paper into eccentric art pieces makes her the most eminent artist. With her inclination towards “save our environment”, she is the first of her kind to portray how art can even be an eco-friendly matter.
The phenomenal artist has made several pieces of art over the years and has exhibited the same at many prestigious exhibitions both in India and international market as well. She strongly believes that, “if a country is given carbon credit for low emission, then why can’t an individual also be accredited ?” This is a clear evidence of a unique approach she holds toward artwork.
Ms. Neelu Patel herself is an artist with a specific goal to provide a suitable platform for various arts and crafts and the artists to bring out their hidden talents and skills in unknown and senior artists and artisans. The foundation has created various groups of artists namely Mukhote Artists, Mukhote Women Artists, Mukhote Rangoli, Mukhote Workshops and Mukhote Culture (to be formed soon). The main group Mukhote artists has more than 200 registered artists comprising artists and artisans of all ages with a variety of arts and crafts skills.
