"I have tried to capture the intensity of nature in 'Nature at Play', which is one extreme, while my painting 'Grandpa!' speaks of the innocence of a child. The colours I have used are bold and the brush, I feel, doesn't limit me; it in fact lets me express myself freely. It made me believe in the power of art more than ever before"----as said by Reema Bansal. Reema Bansal is an Indian born painter. Reema Bansal took up painting at the tender age of three. Immense support from her parents and teachers made her to rise to fame.
