This piece is inpired by the bright, jubilant colors of Holi. "HOLI" is the Indian festival of colors, a day when people rejoice and smear and throw colors on each other. Holi officially ushers in the spring season and is known as the "Festival of love".
My memories of the Holi festival include walking aroung the neighborhood streets smearing colors on friends and neighbors. By mid day there would be puddles of colored water on the sides of lanes and in peoples' front yards. The puddles of brilliantly colored water is what truly inspired this piece. This is one of a trip of paintings along with the second one in shades of blue and green and another in shades of purple, blue and green. If you would like to purchase all three just message me and I will give you a discount on the price:)
I dream in color! I have been fascinated with color from an early age and have always surrounded myself with it. An education and career in the architecture and interior design industry gave me a deeper understanding of color and the positive effects a good color palette can have on the inhabitants of any space. A few years back I started painting with acrylics and ventured into mixed media art. My paintings are explorations of various media and textures and show my unrestrained obsession with color. I paint whatever catches my fancy, sometimes a color scheme will compel me to start a painting and at other times an image from nature will. Being born and raised in India, I have the advantage of having soaked in its rich and multi-colored culture and heritage and that very often comes through in my creations. In short, my art is a classic example of "East meets West". Most of my works are richly textured and vividly colored, making them a treat for the senses. I very often start a painting with just a color palette in mind and let my creative energy take charge of the canvas. I have participated in several group shows around the San Francisco bay area and many of my pieces are in collections all over the globe. Thank you so much for stopping by! -Devika
