Biography

Indira finds that her portraits of women enrich our culture's appreciation of the unique strengths of women. Indira has observed sometimes that a woman's devotion to the well-being of other family members can limit that woman's opportunities to express her own innermost emotions, her own sorrows, and her own feelings. The woman's emotions and feelings continue to develop from within; and over a lifetime, they can build extraordinary inner strength and character in a woman. When Indira adopts such a woman as a subject for a portrait, Indira wants the portrait to reveal all the vibrant reservoir of the woman's unspoken emotions, feelings and strength of character.  As described by Jim Kent Director of Abstractexpression: “One word describes Indira Servaia’s stylized portraits of women – ravishing.  These jewel-like works are contemporary icons, capturing each subject’s strengths, vulnerabilities, and individuality.”

 To explain the striking style of Indira's colors and strokes, one could look to the global span of the multiple cultures from which Indira draws. A native of India , Indira arrived in the United States in 2005. Primarily a self-taught, inner-directed artist, she also has studied art in India and in the USA with artists of diverse styles and techniques. Also, much of her style is inspired by the French Fauvist paintings. But these influences are insufficient in explain why her portraits make you feel as if you really know the woman's depth of personality and being.

She has won awards in India, showed her paintings at various galleries in

India, NJ and Philadelphia. Attended workshops at Philadelphia, India and  NJ and is a member of Rancocas Valley Plein Air Painter.  She is also a member of Center for the Arts and Willingboro Art Alliances. She has private collections in India and in USA.
