42HUES.COM - Sumithra Bhakthavatsalam's Art


I am a painter based in Seattle, WA. Being a very visual person, I view art as a means of giving ideas and events a physical form, a form that lives and speaks, long after the ideas are transformed and the events forgotten, through life's many meanderings.

I also enjoy capturing subjects in various moods, through pastels and paint, and this has added some photo-realistic works to my repertoire, a collection of portraits done from photographs, and modified somewhat to produce my rendition of the personae.

As a painter, I consider my job to be to help people connect with truths within and without through art. Rather than art being for its own sake, I take the position that art's purpose and value are realized in the universe of the creator and the engaged patron.
