Alfiya Inamdar Wall Art Gallery

Alfiya Inamdar

Alfiya Inamdar is a self-taught artist from India, currently residing in New Zealand with her husband and an extremely spoilt cat. A graduate in Architecture; it is during this period of study that she rekindled her passion for painting and art history. Studying the work of Vincent Van Gogh compelled her to pick up a brush and paint again and she considers him her inspiration and teacher. Growing up, Alfiya spent many summers with her grandmother in the lush and bright countryside. Being surrounded by scenic landscapes is what led to her love of nature and this connection has had a deep influence on her work. Alfiya is always experimenting with new genres, mediums, and styles but she always has a special place in her heart for landscapes and the representational style of art. Having moved to New Zealand in 2017, the artist now draws inspiration from the natural beauty of glacier-carved mountains, thermal springs, lakes, and beaches, along with the unique flora and fauna found in the country. Alfiya is a versatile artist and works with Inks, acrylics, oils, pastels and watercolors. Her color palette varies from dark reds, blacks and blues to bright pinks and whites. ‘Painting what she loves and loving what she paints’, would best describe her.
