    Dear Art Collector, Thank you for stopping by!

    Artist Bio

    Geeta Yerra was born and raised in India. With a master's degree in social work and a post graduate diploma in HRD, she has worked for the lowest levels of society and multinational corporations and has acquired a lot of varied experience.  Art was always her inner calling. She stayed in England for two years in 2011 – 2013 and during her stay in the beautiful Buckinghamshire she joined local art club and there she decided to become a full-time artist. She happily adapts and belongs to the place and culture where she lives and that is visible in her art.

    She has travelled to Europe and north America and keeps travelling to the USA almost every year. Her out of country experience is visible in her art in the form of landscapes or souvenir art of the places visited.

    Geeta, a self-taught artist is based and operates out of Bhubaneswar, India. Her paintings are realistic as well as conceptual. Her concept art is mostly in oil or acrylics and the realistic art is in watercolors.

    She had participated in several group exhibitions in UK during 2011 – 2013

    Had a solo exhibition in India in 2017

    Her art is in private collection of collectors from the USA, UK and India.


    Artist Statement

    Being self-taught, I started out painting watercolor still life or landscapes but my inclination was to express real life or my thoughts. My art is my diary.

    I do concepts that make me happy. Generally passing ideas or current events inspire me to create my artwork and there is always an interesting true story behind each work of mine and so it will add to art history or the thoughts that influence contemporary world that we live in!

    Oil is a slow drying medium and so I try to capture an event or an idea in all its glory with paying much attention to the artistic nuances. Using a traditional method of creating with layers of paint, I emphasize on the texture and color.

    I hope the viewer will enjoy watching the stories that I have created, the era and events, also would pause to reflect about the concept at a deeper level.
