FREE-HAND TEXTURED PAINT DEMONSTRATION with BALA THIAGARAJAN
CLICK THE BELOW LINK TO REGISTER:
On Feb. 10, 2021, the Homer Township Public Library and the Lemont Artists Guild present artist, Bala Thiagarajan. Bala will demonstrate how she paints her free-hand textured acrylic paintings and her incorporation of Indian folk art forms. She has been painting in the style of henna body art by piping acrylic paint using piping bags and squeeze bottles for more than 10 years. More recently, she has been working on Gond paintings - a form of tribal folk art from India that she does with her textured painting technique. These paintings are done with precise patterns that are repeated consistently to create signature motifs influenced by nature & culture. Her demonstration will include how she brings her own style to these paintings.
Bala is a self-taught artist with a PhD in Biology. After spending 10 years in academia, she started her art career and has now sold more than 700 original paintings to collectors in the past 9 years. She participates in 20 or so juried art fairs in the United States every year and has won awards for her work both at juried shows and local art guilds, including the Elmhurst Artists Guild. She is excited for new inspiration in her new home, now living in Texas. You can see her works and learn more about her at www.artbybala.com.
