Zentangle Creations..

“Zen” in Japanese means meditation & tangle is to entangle. “Zentangle” is a form of meditative art in which, the various patterns are tangled to form a beautiful image. This art is very intuitive, abstract & fun to learn. It involves drawing structured repetitive patterns which leads to the formation of beautiful designs. It increases creativity, focus and brings in a sense of well being and calms down and relaxes the mind.

For me personally, the introduction to zentangle was a chance event. I was always interested in the traditional form of art – drawing, painting, craft and the like. I accidentally happened to come across a post on zentangle in one of the social networking sites, which immediately caught my attention. This led me to do some netsurfing to discover more about this art form. From then on, I have taken to it literally, like a fish to water.

I have since created a few patterns and it gives me a kind of deep relaxation & relieves me from any stress that I may be going through. It calms me down. The feeling, of putting pen on paper and creating something so wonderful is just exhilarating. This art form brings out the creative expression within me & also gives me tremendous satisfaction. On busy days, I literally have to steal time for my newly discovered passion.

I have gifted a few of my zentangle creations to my near and dear ones, and the pleasure I derive from gifting my very own creations, is indeed very satisfying.

    I am quoting from your blog, and find it embraces the idea of meditation, which requires the mind to be calm,, free from distractions. An example quoted says the mind requires something to hold on to be free from the clutter other thoughts. Great musicians, artists, and even a sniper require totality of the mind to be focused.
    The intricate patterns and symbolic designs of Zentagle is a form of meditation. One cannot but come out with such creative designs without the mind in meditation.
    Great work of art Deepika.I kept gazing at the z entangle.for some time, and was mesmerised.
    It really made me calm, with some meditative music playing in the back ground.
    I wish you Godspeed in your gift of creative art .

    1. Zen in Japanese means a form of meditation. So you are absolutely right when you say it’s a form of meditation. I have observed, when I am agitated, I am not able to work on any of it.
      Thanks so much for your appreciation and encouragement 🙏🙏

  3. Entangled conveys a a tied up…knotted up pattern… Just adding a “Z” to it makes it truly meditative…You have the knack and the blessings to bring in divinity into the lives of many people, of which we are also beneficiaries 🙂

  4. Lovely creations,Deepika. Not sure if these are the same that are available in bookstores, otherwise known as stress relievers. The stress relieving involves a task of coloring the given pattern which looks very much similar to those in your post. Enjoy, Deepika.
