Artist Veena Advani creates abstract paintings exploring themes of relationship, identity and the natural world. Her signature style – mixed media with hand embroidery – reflects her experience as a fabric designer for New York fashion houses.
It gives me such pleasure to extend my decades-long collaboration with these gifted artisans, who have translated my vision to couture embroideries and now to intricately enhanced canvases.
Veena has collaborated on bespoke designs for brands including Pamella Roland, Marchesa, Isaac Mizrahi and Lanvin.
Each painting weaves together Veena’s passion for classical art and artisan techniques, breathing new life into raw metallic beading materials and embroidery. The artworks depict trees, birds or abstract forms influenced by nature and her experiences in the fashion world.
Veena focuses on creating a modern response to traditional craft practice. Through process and materials, she tells timeless stories, via needle and thread, bead and brush.
