Mona Das Adhikary
My art reflects the color of ancient India. With the beautiful arrangement of color combinations and fine touches, I am truly able to bring Ancient Indian art the justice it deserves. My color purity and graceful curves enhance the beautiful Madhubani, Santala, Warli, and Gonda painting styles.
I have always been a “maker”. I have made children, clothing, paintings, jewelry and more. Color seems to talk to me. I find it a transcendental experience to create using primarily bright colors. Looking at the natural world I become reflective and joyful in a calm and centered way. Using paint, cameras, and stones to create allows me to lose track of time and enter a place of connection with a higher part of myself.
In the real world I have been a supermarket cashier, cab driver, and a massage therapist/ teacher. I have children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and x husbands. I am now retired and able to spend more time with nature and discovering what else I may want to create.
I hope these images brighten your day,
