Nirupa Naik


Nirupa Naik born in the picturesque village of Savoi Verem has been deeply influenced by her surroundings of hills, trees and ponds which all form part of nature.
This breath of clear fresh air untouched by the city fumes seen very heavily in her earlier works still form the ways of her canvases today. Her recent creations show the appearance of the human figure.
She has participated in major art exhibitions at various Art Galleries since 1976. Her talent was rewarded early by an invitation by the Lalit Kala Academy, Delhi for an international artists' camp, held in Goa.
A graduate from the University of Bombay, Nirupa Naik is presently working as a designer at the Design & Development centre, Govt of Goa.
