Vaidegi Rajagopalan

I am Vaidegi and I have recently moved to Melbourne along with my husband and son. Art has been a part of my life from childhood. I worked in IT industry in India for 6 years. After that, with the support from my family I followed my passion for art and was blessed to be trained by artist R. Rajendran (Dessin Academy, Chennai). I have exhibited my paintings as part of a group show "Infinite Expressions" held at Lalit Kala Academi, Chennai.

I am much interested in portraiture, realistic art works and Indian Folk arts such as Kalamkari, Kerala Mural, Madhubani, Patachitra and Mughal Paintings . I am trying out my hands on modern semi abstract paintings as well. I work in Oil and Acrylic mediums. As of now, I am trying out various techniques to create paintings with the photographs that I have taken here. I would like to take up commission paintings as well.
