My name is Rupal and I’m a mixed media visual abstract artist based in Atlanta, GA. The different passages of my life have influence on my creative work. It keeps my imagination curious and multifaceted. Colors and textures of gemstones, and veining in natural stones, are a strong inspiration for my artwork. I am also influenced by global textiles and patterns found in both vintage and new designs. I enjoy working with all manner of mediums and my starting point for each creation is a scribble here and a blob there made from crayon, charcoal, ink, and pencil. Then I begin my many layers by adding, scratching, scraping and sanding with acrylic, collage, oil sticks and more. My goal with each piece in the beginning stages is to play and have fun without the result in mind. Slowly the work emerges as each layer is added or taken away.
