'Namaste' meaning Greetings: Namaste I

  • The painting “Namaste” meaning Greetings is inspired by the ancient traditional South Indian mandala art called Kolam. Kolam is a form of geometric art made with dots, lines, loops, and curves. It is a sign to welcome people into the home, a tribute to harmonious co-existence, and thought to bring prosperity.  


    My mandala paintings are hand drawn and painted with zero size brush with meticulous precision and intricacy. The colors and texture are inspired by Indian Kanchipuram Silk, a type of woven silk fabric, which is an inherent part of several traditional and religious Indian ceremonies, especially weddings.  


    The painting Namaste I highlights the meaning and significance of traditional geometric art, Kolam and the prominence of Kanchipuram textile art of India.
