Ella prakash

A lifelong fascination with painting shapes the work of Ella Prakash. The Indian, Bahrain-based Artist & Founder of Ella Art Gallery & Ambassador for Arts of India in Bahrain. Her permanent collection is in Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Art- Las Vegas, her work is demonstrating that while the art market continues to gain momentum, the recent works form a decided and intensely concentrated body of work, never before has Ella Prakash focused so closely on the medium of painting, which seems almost like a liberation, opening up the potential to give the issue of form and background, space, areas and lines a new level of concentrated dynamism. With her current abstract series, Ella Prakash challenges herself to unlearn the pattern of control she seeks in representation; thus, reinventing the language of anatomy, chiaroscuro, and storytelling. Her paintings are distinctive for their bold brush strokes and vibrant colors.

Story behind her work

In reviewing her artistic concepts, Ella Prakash explains the meaning behind her series: "When you start painting you always will have a base idea of what your finished work should be, but more importantly allow yourself to prepare as many as alterations of your base idea. Simply because once your mind has decided to steer your thoughts, you start to unravel emotions and strokes that you never thought you could express". In regards to her colorful compositions, she mentions:"My spirit is mirrored in my work. I believe that every work of art must carry a message."
