"I am infinitely inspired by nature. My work embraces color, a free spirit and the beauty of imperfection "
Born in Malawi, Africa, to Indian parents, Sonal Nathwani grew up in England and now lives and work in Vienna, Austria. This exposure to a multitude of cultures throughout her life reflects in her work, being a blend of Asian and European influences and sensibilities.
Sonal has a unique way to deal with composition and flowers as a subject, which usually is the main theme in her artistry. With her harmonious color palette and sense of understanding for the essence and dynamic of a natural object, she gives life to vibrant sceneries.
The lines and patterns complement each other in an unforced way, there are no definitive focus points in the paintings, instead you encounter a wholeness built up with sensitive brush strokes and smooth transitions.
