We are all but packets of energy. Neutrons protons and electrons, that are building blocks of not just human beings but also of the universe are nothing but packets of energy, coming into material existence only when there is a conscious observer. This means we are all nothing but waves of energy. This means that when we touch each other, we never actually touch, it is our electro-magnetic fields that actually touch.
Growing up I grew up believing “everything is maya or mirage” as per Indian philosophy. As an adult when I came across the science of subatomic particles as nothing but energy waves as per quantum electronics (the basis of entire electronic industry) I understood that the entire universe is nothing but one cohesive connected entity. In this show I will explore the ways we are connected to each other humans, animals and every particle of the universe.
Sujata's Art and Poetry Performance at La Pena, Berkeley CA
La Peña Cultural Center and the UC Berkeley Women of ColorX Initiative collaborate once again to brought "The Empowering Women of Color Open Mic!" The theater vibrated at EWOC Open Mic with the energy of powerful women speaking their truth! Click on the Video links above to have a taste of the performances.
Recently I had the honor of performing at the La Pena Cultural Center and the UC Berkeley Womxn of Color Initiative. The Empowering Womxn of Color Open Mic saw many women of Color presenting powerful, robust thoughts. I picked up a poem in Hindi my mother younger which spoke about my experiences, growing up as a girl child in India in the 70s. Coming to the US as an adult in 2000s one would believe that many of the prejudices we encountered back in a India would be nonexistent here. But how wrong I was. Turns out subjugation, power play, gender bias plays out even in ‘developed’ societies.
If you have time do go to link above to click at my performance that begins at 1.03. The second link is just my 5 minute performance at my youtube channel.
I speak about seeing my mom succumbing herself to the expectations of elders and never realising her potential. I learnt many important lessons from there - resilience and positive rebellion being just a couple of them. So grateful to @lapenaculturalcenter for opening their doors to such initiative and @UCberkeley for letting us present our thoughts

How To Create Your Art Diary: On Going Weekend FB Live Group
I started this Group on May 22 2020 when the world was under lockdown. It started with me teaching others about art skills and it has now evolved into a safe platform where Artists and Art Enthusiasts can learn from each other and exchange ideas at an equal level without fear of Judgement...Art is definitely what brings this group together but more important is that we value everyone's opinion and art, because there are enough forums where we are judged and we judge ourselves.
Mandala Reivented at Tahoe Art League
Mandalas literally means a circle and have existed in traditional art
for almost 12000 years, Sri Yantra being one of the earliest examples.
It represents the universe and the inner self and its self symmetric
designs are pleasing to the eyes. They are known to reduce stress,
anxiety, depression and help one calm down. Artist Sujata Tibrewala
takes them to another level and uses modern symbols and watercolor
techniques to represent the modern world we live in today. In this
series of 4 classes you will learn dig into symbols that are
meaningful to you and paint it within the forgiving symmetrical
patterns of Mandala while you inadvertently learn skills such as
visual and colour Perspective, colour theory, patterns in nature, and modern watercolor techniques.
