A collection of
original still life paintings.
Inspired from the mundane including household, food and fabric folds which during the time of quarantine took equal status to our much other treasured posessions.
Hi! I am Parmeet Arora Bori, an Indian born mixed media Artist/ Illustrator, who loves indulging in nostalgia - the comfort & protection of my joys of childhood and
re connecting with what I am passionate about as an individual. After graduating from University of Arts, London focussing in Fashion Design in 2005, I have been working as a Surface Pattern Designer for a high street supplier in UK.
After losing my mom to cancer in 2015 and becoming a mother myself within consecutive years, I started painting & illustrating art which creates a sense of repose, growth, recollection and belonging for me and the viewer. I am constantly relooking at my environment while appreciating a sense of belonging.
Watercolours, Gouache and Acrylics are my favourite mediums to work on. I take inspiration from the energy of people, textiles, and the meditative qualities of nature.
FUN FACT ABOUT ME
I get tingles in my palms whenever I come across folk Islamic/ Mughal/ Punjabi patterns.
