Hi! I’m Nirali, a self-taught London based artist. As a kid I spent more time playing with paint and henna than studying. Despite numerous efforts by my parents to guide me towards many more conventional paths, I rekindled my love for art three years ago after a trip to Thailand, and here we are! (I’m sure if you’re reading this then by now you will be fully aware of my obsession with elephants).
I believe in mess; nothing is perfect and that is what art is, imperfection. A lot of my artwork is inspired by exactly that. I believe that everything has two sides and a lot of time is spent never having explored what is underneath the surface. Painting with oil and acrylics lets me experiment with colour and create vibrant pieces whilst using ink pen allows me to focus on detail and precision. I enjoy experimenting with all mediums and working on various surface areas.
All my work is hand painted/illustrated and a lot of time and effort goes into making sure each piece is unique. If you have any questions or are interested in anything please do get in touch, I’d love to hear from you! Any suggestions or collaborations are also welcomed.
