About Saroja La Colorista
Saroja has travelled extensively and is inspired by different landscapes and cultures. She lived many years in India, where she started painting full-time with oils and a palette knife on canvas. She has also lived and worked many years in Majorca, where she is called ‘La Colorista’, due to her inspired colour work.
Already very young she won prices in painting and drawing. Saroja studied art in Holland (portrait at the academy of fine arts in Maastricht) and in India (at the school of art and creativity in Poona), but is predominantly self-taught.
She has developed her very own style, colour play and technique in abstract landscapes, seascapes, clouds and cosmic vibrations, creating certain feelings and atmospheres. Some are very vibrant, emotional, with strong colours, others are just very quiet monochromes with shades of one tone, Her paintings vary from very small to very big and as akin to music, expressing inner emotion without representing the real world.
Abstraction going into Impressionism or Impressionism going into Expressionism.
Saroja had many exhibitions in different countries and her paintings are represented in many different private collections of art in India, France, Holland, South Korea, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Australia, USA, UK, Norway, Spain and Portugal.
