Yellow Balloon. Acrylic & Marker 36" x 24", 2002
Introducing Avani Patel. I was nosing around on Re-Title, a great site to explore for artists, and came across the unbridled joy of Avani Patel’s work. If this drizzly day in nyc (or your dreary apartment for that matter) is getting you down, these drawings just might cheer you up.


Smile. Acrylic 32' x 36', 2002
Taking inspiration from the patterns, colors, music and dances she experienced as a child in India, Patel paints large arrangements of colorful and rhythmic figures, as well as collections of “characters” --sometimes on small, individual pieces of paper, and other times writ large.


Funny Face. Acrylic & Marker on Paper 4" x 4", 2002


Green Dancers. Acrylic 6' x 8', 2002


Untitled. Acrylic & Marker 4" X 4", 2003
The gestures and expression in these drawings and paintings bring to mind someone working in time to music… and it turns out, this is exactly her intent. “ The idea is to interpret the content of the music and express it via visual images; to create an environment of joy and passion conveying a feeling of dance and festivity while using the psyche’s imagination.”


Rice. Acrylic on rice paper, 2002


Red Kite. Acrylic & Marker on Paper 36" X 24", 2002
