Dubai is hub of best international talent; Artist Athira Nanda of Kerala-India is an example.
Artist Athira Nanda from Kerala – India is winner of many gold medals, national awards and scholarship Award Winner for visual Arts by Government of India who lives in Dubai with her husband and enjoying her career as a successful Artist. Her paintings have been picked up by art lovers throughout the world and her art work is exhibited in art galleries across UAE.
Speaking to Athira, “Nature has inspired me” says the young artist with visionary thoughts. Strong Observation of my surrounding gives me the base line for my new painting and does reflects in my art work. “My mother is my motivation” says Athira. Abstract painting with mix media is also an art specialized by her.
It might look strange but no artist has inspired Athira to be an artist except their art work. At the age of 3 her talent was recognized by the family and the bedroom walls became canvas to the child. She has won dozens of awards and painting competitions on state and national level.
Athira has a very rare talent of using dark bold color in the center of her painting and very bright light colors on the corners, which is reflection of “One family, one planet”
Her time in Dubai inspired her to create works that are symbolic of the richness and harmony of various cultures living together. Athira began her professional career in Dubai in corporate designing and now she is full time artist.
Athira Nanda has her own website and thousands of followers on social media.
