Alpana Mittal “Tejaswini” is a versatile artist who’s artwork revolves around modernization of traditional themes including, ancient Indian romanticism, folklores and legends.
Born into an art loving family, Alpana was exposed to art and its appreciation from early childhood. She chose “Fine Arts” as her major and has a M.F.A. from CCS University, India. She also has an “Arts Management” diploma from New York University. Alpana lives and works in Jersey City.
In these artworks she has taken a play toy for children and created mature artwork from it. All of these artworks have been created based on the visions from her dreams.
Hence, she has appropriately named the series as “Dream Reflections”. This series uses fractals with a flavor of decorative patterns used for community and religious meetings across Asia, ranging from Tibetan Mandalas to Rangoli, the floor decoration art of south Asia.
Alpana has displayed her art work globally in exhibitions and galleries and has been widely acclaimed for her multifaceted style.
Her traditional painting depicting “Krishna” was judged “Best in show” in Hudson County Art Exhibition 2013. Several of her art pieces are in private collections in Asia as well as North America.
