Ujala Aftab’s initial education was in pre medical but my inborn passion was inclined towards arts, it is said that the man proposes and God disposes. Same happened with me. I was destined to follow my fate in arts and was selected by NCA in textile. Where I learned that thread as a medium is as beautiful as traditional paint. So as an artist of 20th century I was inclined to break the monotonous use of thread and paint respectively and morphed them together to create uniqueness. So initially I practiced with thread medium with other textile techniques, Embroidery as one of them and developed a technique where I can draw a portrait with simple running stitch creating depth with thread manipulation. I admire the simplicity in arts and always kept it real and minimum through color and texture.
