Back to artists

Neelu Patel, from Ahmedabad is a trendsetter with each of her artifacts crafted from Papier Mache. She is known for bringing life to used newspaper through which she uniquely crafts marvelous paintings. These are complimented with her proficiency in color blending and superficial effects.

Her mastery in converting waste paper into eccentric art pieces makes her a most eminent artist. With her inclination towards “saving our environment”, she is the first of her kind to portray how art can be an eco-friendly matter.

This phenomenal artist has made several pieces of art over the years and has exhibited the same at many prestigious exhibitions both in India and the international market. She strongly believes that, “if a country is given carbon credit for low emission, then why can't an individual also be accredited ?” This is a clear evidence of a unique approach she holds toward artwork.

Neelu Patel says. ''Inspiration arises within a fraction of a second and even you don't know, that your existence is going to dissolve in the beautiful outcome of it. That is inspiration to me and it struck me instantly when I thought of nurturing the idea through papier-mache''. 

She has received numerous felicitations from the government of Gujarat and a national award from the government of India, which marks her forte in creating innovative, environment-friendly paintings.

The exhibition celebrates Neelu's art and investigates what prompted her to tackle the serious issue of environment preservation, what has been accomplished by her in the past and what future plans she holds.
