Art and happiness... in Hindu Metroplus


Healing Strokes - Article by Geeta Padmanabhan features Srivi's thoughts on art, healing, depression, happiness and much more.

“It is possible to touch deeper states of being through art, of restfulness, peace and anandha (bliss),” says Srivi Kalyan... "Healing happens only when we let art move through us, taking the grief, molding it, giving it form, then dissolving it. “I would call it compassionate practice of art.” It teaches us how to find happiness, both in creation and observation."
