I am Priya Malhotra, and art is my life. Growing up, I loved creating art in my spare time. However, I was never encouraged to continue exploring my artistic side. I worked in the travel industry for many years. I got married, moved away from home and welcomed our children. I became a full-time mom during the formative years of my children’s lives. As I got ready to enter the work force, I could no longer ignore my artistic leanings and saw this as an opportunity waiting to be explored. This is what led to the creation of Your Art City. At that time I did not have any expectations. As time went on, my art got more and more recognized and I evolved myself to what my brand is today. I then came to the realization that I want my art to represent me – as an artist! This was the genesis of Priya Malhotra Art.
I am a contemporary mixed media artist creating luxury art. I use resin along with a mix of luxurious texture points like crystals, semi precious stones, gems etc to create high end wall art and functional art pieces. I create a wide range of items like tables, trays, initial letters to cheese boards and coasters.
My brain constantly works on creative mode…..either creating art or thinking about the steps of the next project or how to present my art in a creative way! I am never bored (well, except if I am sitting in a math class). I lose track of time when I step in my studio. I wish to be able to do this for the rest of my life.
