About Sonali Gangane

Sonali Gangane

I belong to Pune,Maharashtra,India a city with historic importance and rich cultural heritage.Graduated in Chemistry and a post grad in Computer Applications, worked with John Deere, Pune a few years back, I decided to venture in the beautiful and challenging world of fine arts and photography.I've been learning through some images & pictures real. My pictures posted over here are, fusion of certain virtual & real scenarios put together.Born & raised in a country like India where colours & vibrancy of those is soul of the culture & life to many, I was always fascinated, by ability to think about colours. All I feel my art is probably impression of my own mind, which I try usher into churning of my creativity.Thank you very much for...
