Welcome to the first edition of Visual Perspectives. We will bring to you Aylin Green, executive director of the West Windsor Arts Council (WWAC) and a mixed media artist based in New Jersey. She focuses on exploring mythologies, dreams, scientific theories, and interpretations of events while gathering inspiration from the crusty tables of flea markets, the sewing boxes of fashionable women, and the colorful graffiti of city streets. She has participated in several public iron pours, including at Art All Night and Grounds For Sculpture. For more about Aylin, please visit her website.

About Visual Perspectives: It is an initiative by Vibrnz to help art enthusiasts and people in general develop an appreciation for visual arts. The visual arts include art forms such as painting, drawing, arts & crafts, photography and more. COVID had a devastating impact on this space. On a positive note, many artists and arts organizations adapted themselves to the new digital world to minimize the impact. We are very excited to organize a series of interviews, complemented by classes, workshops and showcasing by artists across diverse genres. The series will be hosted by Spriha Gupta, a professional artist who is excited to be part of this initiative and make an attempt to reduce the gap between the artists and the art enthusiasts.
