Occasionally you come across a person who says things like, “I used to paint/sing/dance”, people who threw in the towel, because they couldn’t find that precious balance between work and passion. Listening to Kalpesh, one gets the impression that he’s doing a fine job balancing both.
"I’ve always been making art, but it was my spirituality that bought me closer to calligraphy." Though he has been a calligraphy artist only for three years, it’s only a matter of time before other calligraphers start citing Salim Khan as one of their influences.
He began sketching at the age of ten, went on to get a degree in fine arts and is now a successful freelance illustrator and artist conducting international Caricature Workshops and giving TEDx talks. So maybe letting your kids chase their dreams can’t be that bad…right?
