I’m so excited to welcome Lavanya Challa to Oasis Accents. Lavanya is a ray of sunshine and her artwork is an explosion of color, full of joy and love.
“Lavanya finds opportunities to recreate herself every time she sits at the canvas. Each frame captures and relives the most tender and beautiful experiences of her personal life. Color brings her joy. Painting professionally now, at first seeking inspiration in nature and then expanding to visually illustrating emotions. Her art represents the drama in life through color.
Lavanya’s art draws inspiration from the ability to find freedom from expectations. In her own childhood, Lavanya found bursts of art even in her mother’s molecular biology lab. As a trained architect, college days were filled with sketches of building forms; historic, contemporary and imagined. Art by Joan Mitchell, Kandinsky, Rothko, Van Gogh and Monet, continues to awe her.0
Lavanya has lived in Hyderabad and Bengaluru (India), Princeton and Dallas (USA). Her varied life experiences allow her to experiment, while enjoying the process of discovery and jubilation of the final outcome. Several years of strokes, has led to this moment of bringing to life a canvas with her imaginative play of color and joy. Finding relationships between colors, emotions and nature, Lavanya wants to move people, one painting at a time.”
