A self-taught artist, Srinidhi Dabriwal likes to create vibrant, colorful paintings that seem to leap out from your enchanted dreams. Her mission is to create “Happy Art" – art work that brings a gleam in your eye and a smile to your face. Srinidhi says, ”For me, art is a stress-buster. I enter a different world of colors. In tough times, painting for a few hours gives me peace and mental strength to face the day. In my paintings, I use several motifs, to create a lively, pulsating and energetic feel. As a child, I was surrounded with books with my grandfather being a bibliomaniac and an avid rare book collector. I have seen some amazing books by artists such as John Gould and Audubon. This is probably the reason why I like to enjoy painting animals in an imaginative jungle.” Srinidhi is based in Hyderabad and loves to work with mixed media.
