Artist Sri Deepika Ancha
Featured Artist Exhibition Scheduled Feb 19th - Mar 12th, 2022

Show Title: Indian Tribal Art
My name is Sri Deepika Ancha. I was born in India, where I completed all of my education including my M.B.A.
I believe that being an artist is something that one is born to do and cannot be forced. I’ve always had an eye for art but only realized that I am an artist just a few years ago. I used to paint and gift it to my friends and family. They always encouraged me to pursue my dreams. In the year 2021 I got a chance to display my artwork at ART SEE & SHOP at Town Center for their Asian Theme Art Exhibits Show. That was my first experience to show my work.
I started with fabric painting around 15yrs ago. I learnt oil painting from Julee, Ann Arbor Michigan.
My art includes Indian Tribal Art. Tribal / folk art includes madhubani, lippan, kolams, mandalas, warli, pichwai. Each method has been originated from different states in India. I work primarily in acrylics, oil, ink, epoxy compound and modeling paste. I currently work from my home.
Lippan is clay art. It is from Gujarat (state in India). It is mostly done by village women to decorate their home. Warli is from Maharashtra. It is believed to be one of the oldest art forms from history. This type of art consists of triangle shaped figures, both human and animal form. Village women decorate outer walls of their homes with this kind of painting. Each house tells a story. Pichwai is from Rajasthan. It is mainly about Indian deities. Kolams are from the southern part of India where women decorate the ground at the entrance of their homes.
