An Indian Artist in London..

Caroline Jariwala, the artist of these intense paintings, is inspired by her Indian heritage and portrays the themes of culture, ritual and custom through a celebration of female form. Her paintings describe a fusion of visual imagery drawn from Indian Gujarati traditional arts with Hindu and Christian iconography.

Caroline along with being a painter, also leads art projects in schools, galleries and community venues as a teacher and an community artist.

I specially liked Caroline's portraiture of Indian women in brightly colored sarees, performing traditional household chores. It is also interesting to see her artistic journey through the different forms of paintings and iconography over the last some years...
