Shyamala Venkatesh

ArtSmiley Artist of The Month for August – Shyamala Venkatesh

August 31, 2017 By ArtSmiley in Artist of the month

Shyamala Venkatesh was born in Kandy, Sri Lanka. She has not had formal education in art but has inherited the artistic genes from her mother and brother who are skilled in fabric painting and charcoal respectively. She paints in diverse range of styles including landscapes, seascapes, flowers, horses, Indian village scenes. She also expresses her skills by painting the quintessential divine figures of gods like Buddha and Ganesha. She keeps exploring for the style, subject and medium.

She has started painting portraits and truly enjoyed capturing faces and their expressions. She loves the splash of vibrant earth colours in depicting the play of shadows, the gentle sun rays, the flow of garments, and believe that a painting should not only brighten up a room, but also a person’s soul. She always had a penchant for art and it developed into a passionate hobby over the past few years.
