Talent knows no age. Shambhavi is an example of this. Shambhavi Chadha a 17 year old art prodigy displayed her prowess in oil colours at Lost in Nature, the solo exhibition by the young talent at Experimental Art Gallery, Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, in the Capital. The exhibition began on December 30 and will go on until January 3.
Her love for nature depicts in the landscapes and compositions. The lilacs and pinks in one of her works, along with a lily pond are somewhat reflective of Monet’s expressionism. She takes a vantage perspective and sees nature at its best behavior.
The sky, the waters are mostly calm, though their varying moods are quite evident. She has grasped the aesthetics well and doesn’t let monotony set in any of her paintings; she sneaks in a warm color. Her creations are well saturated and retain the freshness and deftness of the natural settings that she takes her inspiration from.
The young student of Sanskriti School, New Delhi started painting since the age of 11 and in oil colours over the last 4 years, a medium in which she has acquired deep interest and knowledge.
The response was enormously positive and during the two days long exhibition she received tremendous attention from viewers and critics and they all applauded her with astute comments. In the Lost in Nature series Shambhavi seems heading in the right direction with firm grip on brush and clarity in choosing the colours.
