Artist of the Week: Riecha Kapoor

I am fascinated by the landscape of the body. It inspires me to depict my life drawings as metaphorical portraits. I have a range of subject matter which I use to enhance and challenge my creativity. I am a gestural mark maker and love to experiment with mixed media such as charcoal and ink and am equally at home with the more traditional medium of oils.

My long term attendance of life classes has developed a passion to run and teach my own life drawing sessions to nurture others in their artistic expression. This has progressed my character no end and has become a powerful tool of empowerment.
