About Mrs. Pramila Giria
Born in Rajasthan and brought up in Tamil Nadu, Pramila Giria’s art was heavily influenced by the best of both cultures. The vibrancy of her art is a complete celebration of life. Ranging from flora, fauna, spirituality, still life, landscapes and portraits, her work reflects the aspects of her personality – peace, calm and serenity. Working with oils and acrylic medium she captures the heart of the theme through texture, richness of colour and illusion of light.
As blessed as one could be, her supporting family cheered and encouraged her passion and talent. Her sibling Pradeep, who recognised his sister’s special gift, encouraged her to enrol in a fine arts college and eventually arm herself with a degree in Fine arts from Stella Maris, Chennai.
Her journey as an artist was most rewarding when the accolades came calling. She won the second prize for participating in “A Photo Journey of Women Empowerment” and painting exhibition on “Female Foeticide Eradication Movement and Rural Development”.
In addition, she contributed to the society by donating her art to various organisations selflessly. Her husband Kamal on the other hand, made it a mission to bring her work to limelight and showcase her talent to the world.
