Born in 1943, Anu Naik completed a diploma in Fine Arts from Sir J.J. School of Arts, Mumbai in 1964. She is considered to be one of the finest painters of traditional Indian Paintings. Her medium for her works is oil on canvas.
The artist has always admired the human form and has a special knack for painting the rustic rural life of India. She finds it extremely interesting to capture moods and movements of her subjects and she goes far beyond what is usually evident. Her use of muted colors along with her use of typical Indian traditional colors in her palettes adds to the beauty of her paintings, whichclearly reflect Indian traditions and culture. Her figurative compositions are a paean to contemplative and serene prose.
She has had exhibitions in New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Breman (Germany), London, Spain, Bhutan, Norway and Sweden.
