Mosaic Art

Vandeepp Kalra | July 31, 2020
Mosaic Art

A mosaic art piece is a labour of love – one that takes significant time and patience. It could take anywhere between one and two months depending on the size and the intricacy involved. While it is definitely an elaborate process, the four key steps include the following.

  1. Composing and designing an outline
  2. Manual cutting of mosaic tiles and stained-glass pieces to the desired shape; thereafter, the pieces must be segregated depending on size, followed by pasting them onto the substrate
  3. Once firmly set, the crevices in the piece must be filled in – a process called grouting
  4. The final step is polishing the artwork to perfection

This mosaic art piece is for sale. Prices are available on request.


Vandeepp Kalra

Vandeepp is a mosaic artist who plays with mosaic tiles and stained-glass pieces that she imports from Europe.

 

Her work, juxtaposing elements of texture, light and scale, articulates into stories filled with colour and mystery, thereby creating exquisite contemporary art.

 

Vandeepp’s dedication towards the art is witnessed in the minute detailing in her work. The painter in her keeps the movement and the fluidity of the subject alive, which is a challenge to achieve considering the static nature of the glass.

 

Vandeepp says, “What started off on a whim has grown to become an obsession of sorts. Like life, mosaic art is a journey of infinite possibilities. No matter how you plan or conceive the end piece to be, it will always have its own identity and character, full of surprises. And it’s this journey I find most gratifying.”
