Avani Patel was born and raised in India until the age of 11. Patel completed B.A. from Penn State University and received an M.F.A. in painting and drawing at Tyler School of Arts.
Her work comes from various music and the performances and is defined towards a direction of both eastern and western culture influences. She is constantly learning new ways to create paintings and characters to become more alive like human forms and joyful that will draw the viewers to an imaginative place.
Patel’s idea of painting is that it is a performance with music that creates a whole new language of abstract harmony, as a means of expressing music in visual form. The inspiration of Indian performance and various music selections inspire a language of expression, rhythm, and abstract figures which form pattern on my canvases. The idea is to interpret the content of the music and express it via visual images; to create an environment of joy and passion conveying a feeling of dance and festivity while using the psyches imagination.
Avani Patel was a former studio artist in the chashama Workspace Program.
