Meena Subramaniam

Meena Subramaniam is a self-taught artist whose paintings of a botanical nature depict the regional biodiversity of avian species and regional flora. Her works feature the entire range of hill and mountain flora in biodiversity ‘hotspots’ such as the Western Ghats and the Northeast. Her life-size paintings rely on close observation and naturalistic portrayal of the floral world, and focus on the identifiable botanical species in their natural habitat. She works with acrylic on canvas because it is flexible and lends well to the signature trompel’œil effects that have come to characterise her works.
