About Priyanka Poogalia:
Life is an amalgamation of shades of experience, colors of imagination and impressions of our action and reaction.
My work at NGO, dedicated to the cause of women left lasting impressions in my life. I chose canvas and brush to express my experiences of life, its celebrations and struggles.
Nothing represents spectrum of life wider than womanhood. Essences of all expressions – Love, Hate, Dedication, and Deceit – that a woman represent, makes the soul of my art work. In-depth knowledge of fabric and textures, acquired as a textile graduate coupled with subject as deep as woman has positioned me to showcase depth in my paintings. Deeper reflection at my work will reveal subtle nuances and provide insight into soul of the painting.
My forte is contemporary figurative and abstract art. My favorite medium for my paintings is charcoal on handmade paper and acrylic on canvas. I truly believe, when charcoal takes form of art it magically transforms into diamond.
