Malavika Reddy's Hindu gods reinvented in psychedelic art

An image of Durga by Malavika Reddy
INDIA---Malavika Reddy is on a break after having completed her graduation at The Maharaja Sayajirao University, Baroda. Through a kaleidoscope of vibrant hues, she presents images of Durga, Krishna, Balaram, Subhadra, Panchmukh Ganesha and Shiva among others. The fine detailing lends a three-dimensional quality to some of the images. The artist is an ardent follower of Isha yoga and meditation and wanted to use Gods and Goddesses to arrive at that meditative quality of art. “This isn’t really the Goan psychedelic art but my interpretation of it,” she says.
