Vinatha is an Indian-born British artist based in London, England. Being immersed in two cultures has influenced all aspects of her life, including her creative side. This can be seen in her choice of colors and her layering of paint, which adds texture and makes her work unique and personal. She works with acrylic and mixed media, employing techniques such as impasto and sgraffito. Vinatha is passionate that her work should depict the beauty of the natural world and foster the desire to preserve it for future generations. She equates abstract art to a beautiful piece of music – eliciting emotions, memories, thoughts and feelings which is specific and personal and different for every individual.
Outside of art Vinatha is a practicing physician. She has a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) and a Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP). Her work in the medical field involves gathering information from different sources and converging to a single diagnosis. Conversely, when painting Reddy starts from a central focus point and diverges outward to wherever her imagination takes her. This reversal process allows her to relieve the stressors of her demanding role and enter an imaginary world of her own making.
Vinatha has exhibited her artwork in several art fairs in London, Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition 2022 and at Agora Gallery, New York City. She was able to donate 57 of her paintings to raise money for a local charity in London, England to help people struggling financially during the Covid pandemic. Vinatha’s art work has been bought by art collectors in Chicago, New York, Houston, Raleigh, Hyderabad, London, Dublin.
I draw inspiration from the beauty I see on our amazing Planet Earth: the flora, the fauna, the colors and shapes of the natural environment. Having grown up in South India and lived half of my life in the UK, I depict subjects and use a chromatic range that express the complexity of my bicultural identity, enriched by my personal experience as a world traveler, physician, and woman. A holy ritual by the Ganges river, a rose garden, a muggy winter afternoon, or the wild flames of a fire exert equal fascination over me. I marvel at the wonders that surround me and let feelings of passion, gratitude, love or sadness filter through the canvas onto the eye of the beholder.
