  • Chandna Batra


As a self-taught artist, it has taken years of persistence to perfect my style and I feel the reward is in the journey. My preferred medium is oil as it best suits my painting style. The loose and fluid nature of oils grant me flexibility along with depth of colour and intensity. Singular, bold colours inspire me, moreover, working with oil paints enables me to create the layers leading to the vibrant shades I adore. They are perfect for blending into a dazzling array of contrasting tones and feel best able to capture the desired drama and emotion to be portrayed. Over the years I have painted Landscape, Architectural, Figurative and Still life. My current body of work, A calling from the Mother Land! is inspired by the art and architecture of the Rajput Clan, in particular the women of 12th-20th Century India. It is a path that has led me to explore the essence of Hindu culture of that period and given an appreciation of the artists of the Kings courts and their challenges.
