Veenita S. Chendvankar
Nature, fantasy and colour, in all its extraordinary hues, tints and tones, play a significant role in VeenitaChendvankar’s art. A self-confessed dreamer, the Goa-based artist’s acrylics on canvas are magical floating worlds – a free associative collage of her fantasies, memories, sense-impressions and the outpourings of her inner world. The art is purely instinctive and intuitive, needing no intellectual interpretation and analysis. Folk art forms like Madhubani and Warli, heavily influence Chenvankar’s works. She gives these indigenous aesthetics a stylized twist to suit her contemporary sensibilities.
