Shantala Palat is a Delhi based, new generation contemporary artist whose work has recently gained popularity after participating in series of international and national exhibitions and winning the prestigious Nippon art award (2011) from School of Art Institute of Chicago, USA. In 2013, she had her first solo exhibition at Hamra Centre, City of West Torrens Auditorium Gallery, Adelaide, Australia. Shantala’s artworks were appreciated for their vibrant and vivid colours and the interesting ability to beautify the negative and positive spaces of the interlocked figures and for portraying the curious nature of the modern human being.
Shantala Palat’s paintings fascinate the art lovers across the world for the use of simple symmetry to create unusual and fantastical creatures such as birds or elephants that finally transforms into a modern man trapped in various social situations. As the images emerged, strange personalities overtook each one of them. The process was planned with months of preparatory sketches prior to the painting and the results were magical and intriguing even to the artist herself.

The main theme in Shantala’s paintings is about the everchanging shades of our personality. and what it does to us. Human nature is a curious creation. It waxes, wanes & erupts. It is fleeting and yet endearing. It is our eternal makeup for a lifetime.
Shantala’s artwork uses water-based media like acrylics, watercolours and colour pencils to enhance the bright and colourful palette of the works as if animating life on paper.
