An affinity for the traditional art forms of her country, India, coupled with a desire for exploring contemporary global themes and modern mediums informs the work of Barnali Bagchi. Her style centers on the creative use of lines, curls and curves, developed around wide ranging themes. A feature of her art is the use and modern interpretation of the signature styles and rich motifs of Indian art, mainly from the “Alpona” form of her native Bengal. A traditional fine artist by training, Barnali is self-taught in the field of digital art where she puts her training to good use even in the non-traditional themes she takes up. Born in a small town in India called Jamshedpur, into a family rich in artistic gifts, Barnali feels lucky to have inherited a passion for creativity. She gave up a career with Indian IT giant Infosys to pursue her talent for art and now calls Dubai home along with her journalist husband. Barnali is also known as Moonbeam1212 in the digital art world.
She lost her rescued best pal and her baby, her beloved tom cat Rajkumar Krishna Bagchi, to Feline Corona Virus/FIP on the 24th January 2017. Not a day shall pass when she will not miss his company and his loving touch.
