About The Artist ...

Rasika Reddy

Rasika Reddy is an artist based in Summit, New Jersey. She was born in India and was educated in India and England. She decided to pursue her passion for art while living in England. Drawing from her own background she tries to create a visual language that is evocative of an eastern culture. She believes that visual art is an under utilised medium for understanding other cultures. The amalgamation of the various cultures over the centuries has become the main subject of her paintings. She uses many layers of different cultural images, and icons to portray a coming together of different worlds.
