Born in the cosmopolitan city of Mumbai (Bombay, India), Anjana Mhatre finds inspiration from the rich culture, colours and diversity from where she grew up. Now, living in the countryside of Ottawa, Anjana draws from both cultures to inspire and create.
Using vivid colours and mixed mediums, Anjana explores the emotions of past and present on canvas, reflected in movement and tone. With faint hints of land and sky, she is particularly fascinated with the natural ecosystem. Anjana works on blending both natural and urban settings, creating complex abstract renderings of her environment and emotions.
