SHIN­ING STAR

Adorn - - GOINGS ON -

Atruly creative spirit, Delhi-based Neha Dani de­signs art pieces en­crusted with gems. The young de­signer took her flam­boy­ant sculp­tural cre­ations to el­e­gant new heights at the ac­claimed in­ter­na­tional fair PAD Paris (Art + De­sign) this April – rep­re­sented by Karry Gallery. Ex­hibit­ing at PAD for the first time, she un­veiled her strik­ing cre­ations to an in­spir­ing re­sponse from col­lec­tors and jew­ellery con­nois­seurs alike. Neha, who delved into art’s fas­ci­nat­ing ter­ri­tory, ad­mits to be­ing con­tin­u­ally in­spired by the works of Vin­cent Van Gogh, Monet, E’mile Galle and cre­at­ing her own “pieces of art form with a stir in them, mak­ing them feel al­most alive.” Founder of Karry Gallery, Karry Ber­reby had been fol­low­ing Neha’s work for a while. This in­ter­est sparked creative con­ver­sa­tions, re­sult­ing in the gallery rep­re­sent­ing the de­signer at this year’s fair. “Show­cas­ing at PAD Paris among artists of to­day’s con­tem­po­rary pe­riod, who ex­pressed them­selves through var­i­ous medi­ums, was not only an ex­hil­a­rat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence but also truly in­spir­ing. Be­ing fea­tured in Art Daily again was an en­cour­ag­ing ac­knowl­edge­ment of my work. I have al­ways worked on each piece to stand out as an in­di­vid­ual art ob­ject and it was hugely ful­fill­ing to see that hap­pen at the show,” says Neha.

Named a JCK Ris­ing Star in 2014, the de­signer has been on the radar of many a jewel col­lec­tor. The PAD fair has em­bold­ened the de­signer; un­will­ing to con­fine her work to a ge­o­graph­i­cal bound­ary, Neha has set her sights on sim­i­lar note­wor­thy art and de­sign shows in far cor­ners of the globe.
