Subodh Maheshwari

“My paintings give me space to feel and express my visual delight in color, shape and form.”
Award-winning artist Subodh was born in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, North India. While earning her Masters in Fine Arts at the University of California, Irvine, she won the prestigious Regional Fellowship Award.
Subodh has participated in many national and international shows including Seoul, South Korea’s 1988 Olympics fourth Cosmopolitan Exhibition. Her paintings have received awards in a variety of categories, and hang in many public and private collections worldwide.
Her artwork accented by Hindi and Sanskrit passages is a fusion of Eastern symbolism and Western composition influenced by Rajasthani and Mogul art. Highly individual in style, her work is described as diverse, emotional, mysterious, personal and humorous.
A respected and experienced art educator since 1986, she taught art for over five years at the University of California, Irvine, and continues to provide art instruction at Riverside Community College, CA. She is active in the California art and education communities, judges art shows, provides lectures, conducts art demonstrations/workshops, creative Indian cooking, and Hindi Language classes to students of all ages.
“I specialize in lifting and exercising your soul, body and mind through art and creativity.”
More of her recent exhibitions as a featured/Solo artist include the Solo Show ArtExpo New York, NY and her “Vision of Earth” show at the Center Art Gallery, Anaheim, CA. Her latest group show was at the South Nevada Fine Art Museum, NV. Currently, Subodh’s creative work is published by World Wide Art Books, “Important World Artists Vol. I”, and in “International Contemporary Masters” Volume VI, VII and VIII, and will also be included in Volume IX in 2015.
