I am Chaya, a contemporary artist based in the Surrey United Kingdom. Born in Sri Lanka to a family with respected publicists with a background in Batik Art, which partly influenced my artistic abilities. Since the age of 9, I used to watch and help my aunty decorate clothes with batik arts and I was inspired by those batik arts. As a business management graduate at the University of Sunderland, I have taken many different jobs to make ends meet. But she's never stopped working on my artwork. In 2018 I have made a bold change in my life and career to pursue my passion for arts. I'm working with acrylic, oil and mixed media. I'm using vibrant colours, brushstrokes and different techniques to translate different characters and angles into a canvas.

My parents bought me my first oil painting set when I was 12 years old and since then have been hooked on painting. I am self taught, but learnt a lot from studying some of my favourite old masters such as Canaletto, Vehemer, Constable. I have been a professional artist for 28 years, have exhibited in London and Cyprus and my work is in private collections in London, New York, Canada and Europe. My work has featured in a number of magazine publications and on Cyprus national TV. As well as working on commissioned pieces, I love teaching art in my studio. Mediums I use are oil, watercolour, acrylic and acrylic ink. Although I can paint any subject, my main interests are buildings, particularly cityscapes and people. Inspiration is from my travels and I have been known to travel to a particular place whilst a work is in progress to gather more details rather than just rely on a photographic reference to complete the work. Most of my commissions are portraiture and architecture and although my style is realism, my aim is not to replicate a photographic image. My watercolour painting technique is quite unique as I tend to paint several layers to produce bold, strong colour which is not normally associated with watercolour painting.

Im an artist originally from a town near Venice in Italy.. i come from a very creative family in general, but from my early teens graffiti, hip-hop culture and the underground scene really shape the artist i became, and i think the influence of this time of my life is very present in my works nowadays.. I ve gotten curious about tattoos at the same time, back then wasn't common to see many tattooed people like now, so i was fascinated by this form of art even though people weren't open minded about them at all...and surely that was made me curious, it felt like you were different from the mass.. At the age of 19 i moved to London seeking my path into tattooing because all my favourite artists were based there and that is where i wanted to be to learn this craft.. 10-12 years later i ve done countless miles to attend international events and expos,i vistited Australia and Melbourne for few years and won some awards at some major international expos,and saw many beautiful places around the world sharing my art and getting my art on a worldwide level.. So being tattooing the centre of my life for over a decade i feel the need to go back to my roots also, my illustrations and my other ideas that aren't related to tattoos.. I enjoy portraits of dogs or any pet an animals, but also very loose and abstract pieces where maybe the tattoo style is related.. My biggest passion is to paint with watercolour or mex-media, but i always had a passion for coffee and bring that into my paintings mixed with a black biro pen to bring that black out.. So i m happy to share my art and my coffee paintings on this platform as it is a technique i feel it's really part of who i am and will allow me to create unique custom works, also with coffee and biro that are 2 everyday items we use, but can really break that barrier of where we normally put them or use them for .. hope you enjoy my art and i m happy to discuss any idea..

I am a London based artist who specialises in portraiture but have taken on various other projects that expand my portfolio. I play into my self-taught background with a liberal use of texture and vibrancy in my portrait paintings. I love experimenting with the tactile nature of original art and am constantly looking for ways to develop and grow as an artist. I can have as much creative input as you seem fit and love to be involved from concept to completion - whether it's a portrait painting or a hand-painted mural. With experience working on highly specific jobs, from campervan conversions to restaurant murals - no request is out of the question!

The Thinking Man

Pick me for these projects:

Sketching performances in front of a live audience is such a great thing to do, I can enjoy the music, engage with it by drawing simultaneously, and by the time the show is over the audience will have seen a blank sheet of A3 paper transformed into the scene they have just witnessed - using only pencils. Magic! My portraiture work is hand-painted in acrylic on linen board, everything passes through my own lense to become colourful interpretations of spontaneous photos with a strong sense of composition and volume that bring the subject to life. There are no last minute changes to this process so I will keep you updated throughout. Illustrations require a good dialogue between artist and client - there will be 2 rough drafts and the opportunity to modify the final piece before the final artwork is sent in its digital form because I really want to get it right for you. ...
If you look around you now, you will see words and symbols, and not everyone can use both effectively. Using my artistic skills to help people express themselves is what I find rewarding. If you can put it into words, I can paint the picture - or the portrait. Or design the illustration you need for your project, or inspire an audience by sketching a performance live before their eyes, or fill your window with a temporary whitewash that doubles as art.

A great experience from start to finish! Shannon did a super job of taking our vague initial theme and ideas and developing it into a really fun and personalised concept. The work itself was completed quickly, on-time and without mess or fuss - and the completed mural looks great! Very highly recommended.

Ola was incredible from start to finish. Her designs were totally on brief. She was very happy to come to me to do the work and worked diligently and very hard. The work is exquisite and perfect for what I needed. Thank you so much Ola

Neha was a professional throughout the process. She provide her deliverables on time. She was willing to working within the constraints of the location (she had to work behind hoardings due to mall regulations!!). The final artwork was appreciated by everyone who came across it.

I would tell anybody who is looking for a professional, friendly, and extremely talented sign writer to contact Erno. Thanks to his years of experience the journey from concept to execution was simple and worry-free. Communication was excellent and the results are amazing. Well done!
