Artist Profile

Aparna Davé

Aparna completed her five year Diploma in Commercial Arts at the Sophia Polytechnic College in Mumbai, India 1981.

Her artistic education was in a combination of fine arts and graphic design. Primarily her studies were in colour, figure study, photography, design and advertising.

In her final year, Aparna was awarded the Best Advertising Campaign for her year.

In 1983, Aparna migrated to Australia and continued her education at the School of Visual Arts in Sydney. She attained her Diploma in Graphic Design specialising in colour, design, illustration, photography, finished art and layout.

Throughout the 80s Aparna continued to paint, and during this time developed a passion in the use of oils, and now has an abiding interest in exploring oil painting on canvas.

Her technique focuses on strong colour and flow, layering using oils, and uncovering to discover texture.

The artists expression is centered on abstract symbols portrayed through the exploration of colour, texture, movement and flow. The emotions derived from these combinations are truly captivating.
