Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that Kajal Zaveri has been chosen for the gallery’s Artist Showcase for the month of July, 2016.
Kajal Zaveri is a San Francisco - Bay Area based artist, originally from India, who now since the last many years, calls California home. She is primarily a self-taught artist and specializes in abstract and semi abstract oil paintings. With an MBA in finance she worked in various corporate positions for a long time, until she took the plunge into pursuing her true passion and switched careers to become a full time artist, since the last 5 years.
Her painting style is a mix of abstract and semi abstract portrayals in rich, lush colors. Her work is colorful, free flowing, and expressive and falls in the realm of Abstract Realism, where she lets her observations, encounters and memories of places and experiences, act as a point of departure for abstracting for a more representational and modern composition.
Her art comes from a happy and positive place. She is inspired by her personal life story of growing up in colorful and vibrant India, her various international travels, and her life now in beautiful California. The colors and styling of her pieces evoke a sense of gratitude, joy, amazement, and wonderment that she feels every day and aspires to share with her viewer. The subject matter in her current body of work is largely inspired by nature; this could be the boundless horizons or the wide uninterrupted landscapes, the beauty of the changing seasons, coastal towns, rolling hills, wildflowers blooming proudly by the side of a busy road, and many such wonderful, special encounters. She also loves going through travel and Photography magazines to get a flavor of the different cultures and colors of the world.
She tries to share this story of something familiar and known, with a fresh, modern rendering, yet keeping it abstract enough for modern sensibilities. Since the viewer doesn’t know of her particular point of inspiration, it is her hope that when they view her work, it ignites their own fond memories of special places and times, and entice nostalgia and dreaminess and a sense of commonness and shared experiences.
She is fortunate enough to have her work well received in the short time that she has been working as a full time artist. Her work is currently featured on the home decor store chain, Williams Sonoma Home, and various other online galleries. Her art can also be found extensively in private collections throughout the United States and Internationally.
