Priyadarshini Ohol is known for her innovative, bold, contemporary art that combines techniques, styles, media, tools, textures to affect the viewer. She combines dichotomies. Impressionism with expression, fluid art with brush/knife work, abstractions of landscapes, chaos with minimalism, exploring and playing with the material properties of canvas, paint, colour, texture, light, and space.

She grew up through challenging socioeconomic conditions in Thane – a suburb of Bombay, India. Priyadarshini often feels emotions, experiences, people, words as if they are colours and vice versa. As a child, she would draw something for her favorite teacher every day before school ended, until she ran out of colours. Asking for anything, let alone colours wasn’t an option, so she left them behind as she went through a subsidized convent school, supported her Mechanical Engineering degree through modelling, ran a couple of businesses, changed things as an activist and almost entered politics while gradually moving back towards the arts by taking acting lessons in Delhi.

Tragedy struck in the form of a ski accident in the Kashmir Himalayas. So she took time out for surgery & recuperation. The natural abundant Himalayan surroundings in Dharamshala added to her life experiences and opened a new approach. Previously, time spent on the back allowed her to gaze and study the skies with a different perspective than the norm. She consumes to create, collecting experiences and piece impressions in her mind palace, building mental pictures until she reaches a need for expression.

About The Collection

By mid-2016, the artist, seeking a free and creative environment, was painting prolifically in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh. The abundant Himalayan region catalyzed emotional freedom and innovation which reflects in her art. This collection showcases the progression from the landscape and impressionistic works such as abstract skyscapes and floral abstracts to complete abstract expressionism.
