Describe your early memories of your emerging talent as an artist?: 
Anjali is a reclusive artist working from Mumbai (Bombay) who has been articulating her sensibility with paper, paint and canvas. She believes that art, like language or music, is a medium of communication whereby the artist attempts to express her reaction to the world - nature, people, events, emotions, memories and situations. Something in each of these experiences strikes the artist as significant, poignant, moving, curious or in some way worthy of note or observation. She interprets such an aspect of reality or phenomenon and presents it through a medium or form that will best convey that significance or meaning to the viewer. If this dialogue happens, then the creation is complete. She paints in an impressionist, modern realist, expressionist style. Her works offer understated comment, tongue in cheek observations, nostalgic ruminations or then, sometimes, quirky, ironic asides. She explores an aesthetic that interprets personal expression in its social context and presents a perspective that suggests such a construction. She has been a witness to the sad history of Mumbai metropolis and most of her paintings reflect her exploration of this relation with her land and its people.
