Vibha Nanda is a professional artist working in acrylic, oil, encaustic and ceramic sculpture.
—”It’s no longer technique, it’s working from the soul”
Vibha has been exclusively pursuing her artistic career since 2005 with continual education in Europe, the Middle East and The United States. She has exhibited In New York, Providence and Doha, Qatar, living currently in United Kingdom.
Observation of her artistic evolution over the years as a full time artist illuminates her journey from process, technique and practice to her current state — barrier-free meditation through art.
—On her encaustic works
Vibha discovered encaustics in 2013 as medium that combined her love of shape and color and added in a layer organic complexity. This process was further deepened when she was introduced to the encaustic monotype process. The immediacy of the monotype process with its quick actions and near magical effects awoke a new sensibility and passion in the artist.
—On her paintings
Vibha with her contemporary sensibility and honing in of traditional technique creates refined and exciting modern artworks. Her expressions with shape and colour interacting with material explores what it is to be both strong and feminine, abstract and impressionistic, muted and vibrant; ultimately grounded in tradition while traversing contemporary thought.
—On her sculpture
Working with clay is when Vibha returns to her most grounded state. “I lose my chaos in the clay,” she said. This sentiment is reflected in her structural process that has always exhibited a strong element of abstraction.
