Hi! I’m Shyama (rhymes with llama and the Y is silent). My background is in oil painting and graphic design, but after a decade of working in the graphic and interactive design fields, I’ve focused my practice on figurative art.
Primarily I work as an independent visual artist. I’m based in Brooklyn, and I’ve also lived in Austin, San Francisco, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, and many different places in Texas. Oils are my preferred medium, but I also work digitally on the iPad Pro which gives me the same look with the advantage of being able to create seamless patterns and looping animations.
