Kanthi Reddi Whitten: Painting, Studio 324
My paintings are a reflection of the things I adore and feel passionate about. Typical themes that inspire me include people and portraits, nature, fashion, abstract patterns, and photography. Depending on my mood, my style ranges from realistic to surreal and whimsical–sometimes all in the same piece.
One thing that is apparent about my art: color motivates me, especially the jewel tones. I create contrast and drama in my compositions by using striking color. Patterning, repetition, and intricate details are also prevalent in my work–whether it be organic shapes or exotic, opulent designs. I am also known to experiment with texture; my pieces have a combination of smooth airbrushed qualities and rough impasto effects. I always aspire to incorporate highly dreamlike connotations into my work.
I specialize in oil and acrylic paintings, although I also create using pencil, pastel, and other mediums. Please contact me if you are interested in a commissioned painting, portrait, or drawing.
