Poetry in Geometry

leave a comment »

Visual artist Madan Meena has exhibited his work extensively in various galleries across the world. Portraying the rich and vibrant colors of Rajasthan his work uses geometry with elements of nature like moon, rain and flowers. His abstract style transforms the circle into subtle poetic images that are extremely endearing.

Colours of Life

with 2 comments

Finding inspiration from mundane and random things in daily life, Leena Thadani is an abstract artist who transforms ordinary to extraordinary through the movement of colours on her canvas. She loves colours and creates beautiful paintings that can really make a room come alive. She believes that painting is a form of meditation and each of her painting takes her into a totally different world.

You will notice symbols from various ancient civilizations in Leena’s paintings. This amazing combination of primitive art with modern abstract style is definitely something to look out for.

Aarohi Singh is a self taught artist who blows magic into day to day common objects like kettles, chairs, tables and convert them into fabulous works of art. She uses rural Indian visuals to create modern, functional and unique furniture. Her Khiladi Table totally blew my mind, it is a coffee table which can be used to play snakes & ladders and chess. If you lift the cover on top you even have a carrom board hidden inside…absolutely amazing.
