Hyderabad: Print making is a tedious art, so to say. But FAUQIA, a fine arts student from Hyderabad Central University is passionate about it. She does not mind spending hours in painstaking work. And she has results to show. Her works were recently exhibited at the International Biennial and Print Art-2004 held at prestigious Bharat Bhavan in Bhopal, where printmakers from 40 countries vied for honors. Fauqia got rave reviews from critics and also bagged a special prize for her work titled ‘Nature’. Print making fascinated me since childhood, she says. It was the unusual quality of the medium which attracted me. I felt that it had lots of potential. So when I joined HCU for doing masters in fine arts I chose it as my specialisation. Fauqia says she is inspired by the works of Lakshma Goud and Anupam Sood from Delhi. Print making is a laborious process which involves etching on a zinc plate or a copper plate and then taking the prints of the etchings. However, it has its own excitement as you are physically and emotionally involved in the work for a long time, she says. There are about 100 printmakers in the country at present and everyone has his or her own style. “I too want to evolve my own style,” says she.
