Strokes Art Gallery, of Priyanka Nemuri is a place where one can experience art in its true form.
Priyanka is a certified artist. She has been trained in fine art for 5 years from PICASSO ART COACHING CENTER under the guidance of late Mr. Mohd. Aliuddin, protege of renowned artist the late M.F. Hussain.
Art took an important role early in her life right from her childhood and it grew on to become her profession. With the help of her husband Sai Venkat Ramana, she started Priyanka’s School of Art. It’s been 18 years since then and no looking back!
She got her hands dirty in various art forms, but canvas is where her heart lies!
She specialises in mediums pertaining to canvas. Her subjects are vast, varied and enlivened by colours.
She also enjoys making replicas of old masters like William Blake, Renoir and Constable.
With these and many more, she has made many clients happy with her beautiful customised paintings to suit the living as well as commercial spaces. True to her passion, she has forayed into the world of art as a trainer and a freelancer.
“Irrespective of the rigmarole and hectic schedules, a piece of art at our dwelling brightens the atmosphere and brings peace to the heart”.
Albert Pinkham Ryder, one of the earliest modern American painters, expressed his views of an artist:
Painting as an art form dates back to drawings on the walls of prehistoric cave dwellings. Today, it is considered a ritual, devotion and decoration. Our gallery helps the artists invent their own visual language and strives to experiment with new forms and unconventional materials and techniques.
Over the past, we have exhibited our artwork of the replicas of masters, nature’s bounty. Our paintings adorn the private collections of many homes and corporate locations in metropolitan cities across India.
We also provide an opportunity for learners at our institute, Priyanka’s School of Art, located at the same address.
We endeavour to bring out the skill and talent in our students and to recognise those who have the spirit and zeal to learn. We take pride in encouraging new ideas and imagination. Students at our institute are provided with various courses wherein they can choose their line of interest guided by proficient teaching.
To encourage students, we constantly hold exhibitions, among which “potpourri” was one. It was held in 2009 bringing together lady artists between the ages of eighteen to seventy-five.
Later, there was “Aakrithi”, exhibition of lights. Colourful, designer diyas, painted pots and other articles were on display and also for sale.
