A small doodle in a box led to international fame
In 2014 the first Red Bull Doodle Art Global Gallery took place in Cape Town, South Africa. That year an Indian University student Santanu Kaushik doodled his way to victory. Hinduism and the spirituality behind it inspired his winning drawing.
“Winning the Red Bull Doodle Art 2014 was a turn that I never expected my life would take. Winning made me more confident about my art and the direction that I was heading. I never went to any art school, or got any support from anyone. I taught myself how to draw. I had a tough time fighting for my art and Red Bull Doodle Art gave me the opportunity to showcase it to the world and now I'm a full time Illustrator/contemporary artist exploring my vision. I doodle every day! I have made it a habit to doodle every day no matter where I am and what I'm doing, and very soon I will be publishing a few books”, says Santanu Kaushik.
What is a doodle?
An unfocused drawing made while the mind is otherwise occupied.
There is one thing all students from around the world have in common: They all have hidden art talents when it comes to doodling during class! And it all starts with the basics: Pen & paper. Art at it’s best!
