May 2023’s Featured Artist
Veda Saravanan has always been self-taught and experimental with her color palette. She doesn’t hesitate to let her colors speak to her and bring brightness to her different forms of art. Veda loves to see the surprise element in the outcome of using different colors and designs. Traveling has really impacted the different ways she uses colors and culture in her work. She has been traveling since a young age and continues to do so as a passion towards her art. Her distinctive style and cultural upbringing allowed her to become the artist that she is today. She has been all over the world and it continues to inspire her work.
As for sculpting, she likes to mold day to day movements and expressions. She focuses on masks and small figurines of humans. Facial expressions have always inspired her because she feels like the smallest expression can speak volumes.
This series is called “A Woman’s Touch of Serenity”. I have always been inspired by the strong, smart, and brave woman who surround me. My mother, sister, daughters, and myself are my immediate inspirations. We have many hidden strengths, talents, and skills most of which are overlooked and overshadowed by a woman’s societal expectation.
I enjoy creating the different forms of woman and elaborating their natural curves that form to create different body shapes while still having it be an abstract piece instead of a realism.
