About the Artist

Mrinalini is an internationally known artist recognised for her exclusive, abstracted flower paintings. Inspired and fascinated by her love of flowers, she has been painting since childhood.

While exploring the theme of ‘greater clarity through contrast’, Mrinalini blends floral expressions with contrasting black and white geometric patterns, creating harmonised mosaics with a contemporary artistic flavour.

Her work symbolises her belief that while individual human beings are essentially unique, in essence we are all interconnected. This recurring narrative of oneness has been reinforced by her extensive travels across continents over the past four decades.

Mrinalini’s paintings bring a vibrant perspective to her celebration of joie de vivre and natural beauty. She has exhibited her works in several countries and currently lives in New Delhi.

Artist's Statement

I have loved to paint since I was a child. And have always loved flowers and nature.

I began a more serious pursuit of my passion by painting colourful birds in watercolours in the early 1990s. That naturally led me to painting beautiful flowers in a botanical style.

Over the last thirty years I have researched and studied extensively the varying styles and techniques of the masters and artists who specialize in painting flowers, nature and other subjects of interest to me.

As a professional artist for the last twenty years, I have experimented with painting flowers and their abstractions in all kinds of different mediums - from watercolours, oils, acrylics, pen and ink, mixed media - and now back to watercolours again!

I have come "Full "

Fine art painting is an evolving and dynamic creative pursuit. As such, my work has developed and evolved into a free and independent style that is an eclectic mix of all that I love and enjoy!

My travels around the world - as the wife of a diplomat - have helped to influence my artistic style and further hone my skill as an artist. It has given me wonderful opportunities to embrace and reflect some subtle elements of the art and culture of the numerous countries I have lived in and was privileged to call my home.

Grateful to be an artist, I continue to feed my passion for painting what is beautiful and that which feeds my spirit. I paint what always fires my imagination, inspires me, brings me joy and what I love.

I’m happy and confident to bring in contrasting elements along with bold black and white geometrical patterns into my artwork. I’m also happy to experiment with new artistic elements and dramatic colours - all the while adhering to an overall sense of balance, symmetry, harmony, beauty and aesthetics.

In recent times, I have been inspired to bring in some more decorative elements by painting pots and vases - along with my signature flowers - in what I group as my "Pot Series". This series also includes a celebration of my passion for painting blue and white chinoiserie!

I feel our work here is never done, never finished and neither are we... life is always coming "Full ."
