Ella prakash

Born and based in Bahrain Indian artist Ella Prakash, founder of Ella art Gallery & Ella Impressions, fashion accessories, she is an Ambassador to Bahrain for Arts of India, an acclaimed artist for feminine-figurative-modern-contemporary art, she showcases positively the liberal art thought process of a highly opinionated artist, she is best known for her inventive techniques and vibrant use of colors. She started her art career in 1984, with a lifelong fascination with painting. She focuses on the topic of discriminations and double standards faced within the walls of her society. Art for her has been a way to express her perception, dreams, and aspirations of women, she visually manages to incorporate all the elements of this topic and create an impact insincere positively.

She 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, she expresses her work through palette knife using vibrant colors, the end result is a direct and spontaneous gesture on canvas that in turn is based on insight gained in previous work and which gives these paintings their inescapable explosiveness, no doubt, that her expression and passion for painting inspire viewers to see, feel, and enjoy in their unique ways.
