About the Artist
Born in 1985 in Goa, Veenita Sadguru Chendvankar was deeply impacted by the traditional art forms she grew up with. She pursued her higher studies from the Goa College of Fine Arts in 2008. Her artwork mainly revolves around the synthesis of Nature and Fantasy in the broadest and purest sense of the term. Adopting an experimental art style, she incorporates every shade, hue and tint to splash her universe onto paper.
