Nikita Mohindra is a British Indian Artist specialising in beach, seascapes and travel art. Her work is committed to exploring depth through colour, texture and the intricacies of water. Through this, she is able to amplify vibrant energies through seascapes and women in their natural habitat.
Nikita’s latest collection of work, which transmutes her fascination of anatomy and travelling experiences into modern art, is being exhibited by the trendy Ad Lib Gallery, situated in Wimbledon Village on Church Street. Art Below, who provide platforms for emerging artists, will be publishing her work on a poster in Pimlico station, this January 2024.
In the Summer of 2024, Nikita will be travelling to Sardinia as a resident artist; home to beautiful Italian coastlines and sandy beaches, where she will be painting live for the Cala Sinzias Resort as well as visiting various boutique hotels in Costa Smeralda. Working from real-life settings, Nikita hopes to interpret Italian landscapes through personal experience and authenticity.
Nikita completed her art training in figurative painting and abstraction at the Art Academy London to further refine her style and conformation. She possesses a particular interest in Interior Styling and how this relates to her work.
Her artistic approach is largely influenced by the likes of Tamara De Lempicka, Georgia O’Keeffe and Damien Hirst. Her nuanced and expressive approach seeks to explore the mystery and movement of water. The ethereal colour palette is employed to represent the transiency of waves.
Channeling her emotions into both her colour palette and work, Nikita lends wisdom to the large and expressive brush strokes that act as a reflection of her travelling experiences. They serve as a tool to demonstrate powerful other-worldly energies. Her use of juxtaposition of light and dark, coupled with textural abstraction, are employed as boundaries to represent cosmic forces and the world as limitless.
When not working from her home studio in London, Nikita travels frequently in search of inspiration, translating her experiences through vibrant perspectives on art, born through a fascination of vivid colour placement and articulate mark-making.
