Devika Menon is a 24-year old self-taught artist and Illustrator who makes figurative art that tells a story. Her works explore community, spirituality, and what it is like to love your body as a woman of colour. Devika mainly works digitally, but also paints with oils and acrylics. She also makes traditional Kerala mural paintings, and has recently started to paint in the Rajasthani miniature Painting style. She doesn’t like restricting herself to a particular “style”, and explores a variety of techniques to communicate a unique narrative.
Originally from Kerala, she grew up in the Middle East in Bahrain and Dubai. Her work is influenced by her South-Indian heritage, her Middle-Eastern upbringing, and nature.
