THE ART & THE ARTIST
Nanditha is a Kochi-based mural artist, passionate about taking Kerala’s traditional mural painting art to new levels and new times. 15 dedicated years in mural art and 1000’s of well-appreciated works ensure her niche space in the mural world. She has participated in a lot of exhibitions held in different parts of India.
Very much fond of drawing and painting since childhood, Nanditha later became enthusiastic about the rich and unique mural paintings in Kerala temples, museums, and galleries. She got trained in traditional mural art too. Vast and in-depth reading and study as well as impeccable talent gave her enough arms and ammunition to protect and take forward the traditionally and culturally precious art form.
In order to create, she draws images and themes from her inner soul. She has been acquiring deep knowledge in ancient art, culture, epics and Indian/Hindu epics, and mythology. The excitement and experience she nurtured throughout these years and earned from her journeys along the length and breadth of India to observe the ancient wall paintings make her works a true reflection of Indian mural art and heritage. While deep-rooted in tradition and culture, she brings her own touch and imagination too into the works.
She has a special love towards Kerala mural paintings using natural colouring materials and at the same time, she does create vibrant murals with acrylic paints on canvas.
With her knowledge of the traditional systems of mural painting as well as her modern-day thoughts and imagination, Nanditha successfully developed two streams in murals. One is the pure form depicting Gods and mythical subjects and stories; while the other is portraying the contemporary characters and concepts, especially women-oriented.
She creates mural works on walls and canvasses of any size. What makes murals unique is always their technique and colours used. For traditional mural paintings, only authentic naturals colours are used which is brewed from certain plants and specifically selected minerals/rocks. To meet the specific needs of modern times, she works with acrylic paints too. Nanditha’s works are testimony to her dedication, talent, knowledge and imagination.
