Gayathri Seetharaman’s love for painting, photography, and travelling, and in the process connecting with her roots growing up in India, among the colorful sights, sounds, and traditions has made her a self-taught artist.
Drawing inspirations from the folk-cultures of India, where nature is depicted in bright colors and patterns, her ideas are a fusion of different art styles from around the world, bringing contrasting ideas harmoniously together. Her vivid compositions are a visual journey.
Living and working out of St Louis, Missouri, she has her work juried and displayed at Missouri History Museum, University City, Manchester Justice Center, St Louis Artists Guild, Intersect Art Center, Art St Louis, Webster Arts, Soulard Art Gallery, Cultural Center of Cape Cod, Maypop Arts, Buttonwood Art Gallery, Stone Soup Gallery, Manchester Arts, Framations Art Gallery, Kavanagh Art Gallery, Envision Arts, Contemporary Art Room Gallery, County Library, Wildhorse Elementary Wall Murals, and live painting auction at Wall-Ball.
She is a teaching artist at the Rockwood-Parkway community and has taught workshops at St Louis Art Museum, St Louis Children’s Museum, volunteers at RAC, and Bal Vihar of St. Louis, and had jugged art competitions.
