I am Surinder Shanker Anand, and I live in Chandigarh - the City Beautiful, situated in Northern India at Shivalik foothills. Since childhood, I was blessed with innate artistic abilities. As a kid, at the age 3, I used to draw on the cement floor using colored medicine tablets and chalks :-)
Art is more of a happening, a meditation, where subject and object merge into each other, and one transcends the concept of time, space and unit. It's amazing that this phenomenon takes place when the entity "i" is not present at all. Anyway, though I enjoy this creative happening, the manifestation may be enjoyed by others. I have received innumerable awards and accolades.
My artistic expressions are engaged with the subjects related to humans (portrait and body dynamics), nature and spirituality. I like to sketch using pencil, water color, acrylic, pastel, oil color and digital tool such as Wacom Cintiq Pen/Tablet, CorelPainter, CorelDraw, Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, Adobe Premier, 3D Max and ZBrush etc.
I have conducted Fine Arts & Craft workshops for INIFD, Elante Mall, Marvel Worldwide Inc., Mattel Inc. (Barbie), Rovio Entertainment Ltd. (Angry Birds), Cartoon Network (Dexter's Laboratory) and in various schools in and around Chandigarh.
By profession, I am software professional, having over 30 years of experience in the IT, primarily in Analysis/Design, Software Development, Delivery, Project Management and rest of the phases of SDLC. I have worked at on-site with American Express (TX, USA), Nekema Inc (NJ, USA), Premier Inc (NC, USA), Syntel Inc (MI, USA), Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd (Mohali, India) and Semiconductor Complex Ltd (Mohali, India); and managed various on-site/off-shore IT projects. I am Masters in Economics from Panjab University, Chandigarh, India, with Post Graduate Diploma in Business Management.
Apart from my profession and art, I have a keen interest in swimming, ancient scriptures, astrology and spirituality. I have also authored a book on Patanjal Yoga.
Hope you will enjoy my creations posted on this website. You have a good time!
