Sonal Johar is a Dubai based Indian artist who works on traditional art techniques of India. A self taught artist with an interest in traditional motifs and patterns, an eye for detail and love for bold colors, she has created life size murals in Lippan art and given a fresh modern look to Madhubani art. Influenced by the local culture of Dubai, she is now working with the Islamic patterns of Tezhip art and presented it on canvas. With her creative ideas, she has developed her own unique style and technique, and given a refreshing dimension to Lippan and Madhubani art. The balance and harmony in her designs are a sort of meditative. Her purpose she says is to “evoke the senses of the onlooker and drive them towards serenity”.
I may not speak, but my heart speaks through my art. Sonal has exhibited at The Power of the Line, 13th - 20th November 2019 at Studio Seven Art Gallery, Dubai.
