Alpana Rai

Artist bio

Alpana is a Melbourne based Self-taught Abstract artist who loves colour which is reflected in her bright cheerful paintings. Being an Australian with an Indian heritage gives her the vast background of the best of both worlds inspiring her, which she incorporates in her work proudly. She enjoys the challenge of finding interesting ways to incorporate and manipulate them to create complex, textured pieces with depth and a sense of mystery. She looks for original and unusual ways to translate the images in her head onto the canvas. She uses a variety of tools to bring in different textures and visual interest and typically creates free form layers without planning, finishing with intentional markings. She works intuitively, bringing forth each piece in a ‘flow on’ effect, letting each stroke guide her to the next. She has done B.tech in electronics and communications has chosen to pursue her passion of art using acrylic and mixed media. She loves painting with acrylic as the paintings.

I create art because...

My art gives me satisfaction , The feelings which I can't convey with words I can tell through my paintings and colours. Creating art is a way of expressing myself and my thoughts .My abstracts are moody and expressive, they are more concerned with colour, line, form, and texture than subject matter.

I am different to most artists because...

My art have some part of me in my every painting .My Paintings are not based on reality; instead they are reflections of the moods and emotions I’m feeling at the time. I don’t pre-plan my abstract works; instead, I allow them to happen organically.

When you look at my art, the thing I want you to feel is...

I look for original and unusual ways to translate the images in my head onto the canvas, giving them an ‘element of surprise’ that draws people in. I would love for people to feel the emotions which I was Feeling at the time of Painting when they see my work.

The thing I most want to say to non-artists is...

For me abstract art is an interpretation of life in different colours. I hope you find your own emotions in my paintings.

I believe art is an important part of our lives because...

art makes community more beautiful it helps us heal, grow and improve ourselves.
