Alpa Palkhiwala completed a course in fine arts and Bachelor of Arts with history. She had some experience as a graphic designer in a few leading firms and gained good essence of relevant ingredients and techniques. Then she started her art journey and had her 1st show of artwork in 2006. Her subsequent solo shows were held in 2012, 2015 and 2022 and she had participated in several group art shows held in Mumbai, Bhopal, Noida, Kolkata and Chicago – USA etc. Her works in renowned art galleries in these exhibitions received good public response and appreciations from the present art world. Her works are in proud collection of several art collectors in India and abroad.
Her present series has been inspired by spiritual art by pairing and amalgamation of artistic mind, body and breath that renders energy and peace to the creator of the artwork. She has illuminated this energy in the artwork with layer work and earthy colours. She has created and presented the Transcendental Universe series in dark hues of black and grey colours created on raw canvas with acrylic colours, ink and charcoal to achieve the finish like that of an etching print. Which was created by hand. It is marvellous and mesmerising in its own way. She has complimented the elements of Indian mythology with Padmasana and studied Jain Manuscript while creating this series. She got invaluable guidance about thematic peculiarities and techniques from Mr. Vrindavan Solanki – a well known/ renowned artist of the past era. She has adorned the Padmasana Series with Kundalini Chakra, Siddhachal, Samovasarana, the insights of enlightenment, bliss of solitude, vibrations of Dhyan, The Silent explosion to Om to Nirvana and many more visual motifs. All these expressions of meditative calmness and the ensuing innate cosmic energy within oneself which can be experienced with practice, exaltation and awakening of the self-realisation a prominent place in her works. She has also created and presented the Conquer yourself Series with an emphasis on simple lines, forms, space, unstructured shapes and apt colours along with the earthy colours via their artistic/ aesthetic tonal rhythm and harmony in the relevant perspectives of visual arts.
