Promila Arora

Artist Promila Arora’s recent works reflect her fascination with architecture and the need to be free.

Like a meandering river that takes its own course, New-Delhi based artist Promila Arora’s paintings are seamlessly connected to each other. Today, her work mostly comprises of architectural paintings. Her latest show, Vignettes from the Sky explores the cityscape through glasses and mirrors. It emulates — both metaphorically and physically — an artist’s desire to be in two places simultaneously… in the open skies and the city. It is her insatiable desire to travel around the world and soak in the culture of the places that translates into this fascination with structures. For instance, Strife is a painting done after the bomb blast in Connaught Place; and the Runner Series has been inspired by the 2008 Olympics. Having done her masters in English from Delhi University and after working with Air India for 12 years, Promila decided to pursue her hobby of painting. She formally studied art at the Triveni Kala Sangam and over the course of eight years (2006 till date) has immersed herself in this vocation. In the past, she’s showcased her work at the 83rd Annual All India Art Exhibition (2012), Common String, India Habitat Centre (2011) and Timeless Moments, Art Gallery Gurgaon (November 2010) among others.
