Jayasri Burman


The imagery in Jayasri Burman’s work has a dream-like and lyrical quality with a unique sensitivity which, although inspired by the Indian folk element, retains a quality of refreshing candor and reflective honesty, that is as original as it is endearing. She manages very successfully to weave the aesthetically engaging design element of the folk idiom into the intricate patterns of her canvas, without losing the natural charm and naiveté of her work, which is uniquely her own. She has had several solo shows, including Lila, 2014; Fables & Folklore, 2010; Sacred Feminine, 2006 and with Art Musings. She has participated in landmark exhibitions all over the world. Her works can be found in important museum and private collections. The artist lives and works in New Delhi.
