About the Artist
Aneela Fazal is a self taught contemporary artist whose modern compositions use color, texture and energetic brushstrokes to evoke emotion in the viewer. Her art possesses a vibrant and powerful energy, created with a carefully balanced pairing of strong and loose impressionistic painting styles. Her art has taken her all around the world with shows in Barcelona, Florence, Monte Carlo, France, Oxford and a yearly show in New York. Aneela’s recent body of work is called “Outside the lines”. The color palette for this series consists of colors that are opposites on the color wheel. The idea behind this is to look beyond perfection and to break some rules.
Aneela’s daughter is the inspiration behind “Outside the lines”. Aneela noticed her daughter’s ability to look at imperfections in a way that allowed the imagination to take over, and captured this in her artwork. Just like her color palette for this series, Aneela and her daughter are complete opposites. For example, Aneela likes to stay very organized and has a systematic way of thinking, while her daughter has taught her to look outside of the box and break some rules. The medium Aneela is using is Fluid Ink. As it comes in contact with the canvas it has a mind of its own and as an artist Aneela loves this unpredictability.
Aneela aims to draw people to her art and hopes her pieces evoke a sense of joy. Growing up as a kid, Aneela was always the one who wanted to spend hours in her room painting. Aneela could always find a reason to paint and create art, and that has been a constant throughout her life as an artist.
