Chitra Ramanathan | Unique Colorful Paintings
Chitra Ramanathan’s paintings arrived on the art scene in 1995 when various art galleries on Broadway, New York City invited the artist to exhibit in solo and group exhibitions. Her work was noticed by art critics including Manhattan Arts that praised the works’ unique style and rendering of colors true to Chitra Ramanathan’s roots as a child artist growing up in India.

Her numerous originals have been acquired by individual and businesses including corporate commissions.

During her student years, she spent an extensive period of time studying art in Paris, France. The experience paved the way for her future abstract paintings that compare the emotion of happiness as cyclical and fleeting to ephemeral garden blooms. Combined with an expressionistic style, the concept is influenced by the Impressionist Movement particularly Claude Monet’s paintings which make Chitra Ramanathan’s work unique.

Chitra’s ongoing goal and dialogue with her audiences is achieved through treating her canvases to fresh bright colors and intricately interwoven texture materials which are executed with rapid brush strokes. The results exude freshness, and have provided pleasure for viewers and owners of her paintings who have deemed them suitable for all venues. Many of her individual paintings are created in expansive scale or as multi-paneled works which makes them attractive for displays in all venues including large spaces such as lobby areas of public spaces.

Working processes:

The artist’s working process, including large installations evolves continually with each developing piece being infused with new art materials. The luminous surfaces are treated with primarily acrylic mediums or mixed media, often dense with collaged imagery and cutting-edge techniques learned through educational avenues such as art conferences. Her experience serving as committee member (Committee for Diversity Practices, 2007-2010 and Services to Artists, 2003-2006) of the College Arts Association, New York, and professional artist residencies at organizations in France and Italy in recent years have been compelling factors.
