  • Biography





    I am Veena Merchant, a Melbourne based visual artist working with a range of mediums and techniques. My works combine abstract, geometric and natural forms to create richly coloured compositions. Informed by both my Indian heritage and by my keen observations of nature and places, my painting reveals a wealth of personal experience and creative insights. Memories, experiences, impressions and perceptions all get filtered through my mind to be transformed into an highly individual body of work. 




    The works presented for this show are all from my current body of works . They are landscapes , seen as a bird’s eye view.  I enjoy the play of colours and textures, presented as abstract but strong compositions. 

     The medium :  watercolour on YUPO®️ paper.  

    YUPO®️ is a synthetic paper from the USA which is virtually indestructible, ultra white,  tree free, and completely non absorbent.
