Creativity with Multicultural Artist, Kartik Trivedi
Mr. Kartik Trivedi- Is Artist of all Generations Today, we had a conversation with a brilliant artist of our time, Mr. Kartik Trivedi.  He is the famous artist whose impressionist paintings are hanging in world famous galleries and accepted by Late President Ronald Regan, President Bill Clinton and French President Francoise Mitterand. One of his paintings of Lady Di’s wedding procession was accepted by the Queen and is hanging in the Buckingham Palace. He has presented paintings to the late Prime Ministers Mrs. Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi of India. Kartik Trivedi has a world record of getting four master’s degrees – one from India and three from prestigious Universities in the US. Kartik tells his life story in this book using his paintings. Due to space limitations, only 100 or so of his paintings could be included in this book. He names and identifies each painting so you can see and feel his thoughts behind each painting. For an art lover and especially a student of art this book is a must for your personal library. This could prove to be a very inspirational book for our young generation. Kartik Trivedi is also a fine music composer and pianist. He performed at the Carnegie Recital Hall in New York City, N.Y. and at Lincoln Center for performing Arts, New York City, N.Y. (1984). Kartik plays Indian Classical Raga music on the Piano. A rare achievement indeed!
