Sweta has sprayed her beautiful art all over the windows at The Nutcracker every Christmas since we set up 5 years ago. What customers love most about the stunning art is the depth and detail of the work – most would almost assume it was on a canvas! The paintings are fun and festive but also bold and plush. She changed the inspiration behind them every year but ensured it always reflected the true spirit of The Nutcracker! Thank you Sweta for adding the festive cheer to our restaurant every Christmas – we can’t wait to see what you have planned next.
Sweta Shah is a naturally gifted painter who unflinchingly digs deep to develop her craft. She has studied with me for over 5 years. Sweta is hard-working and curious and open to new approaches. Sweta’s paintings embody her energy, deep thought, and a good sense of design. Her painting process is courageous. She pushes the work to find new forms of expression satisfying her need to say something in the work. It has been a pleasure to work with her.
When a visual elicits a varied range of emotions the art has silently communicated. Sweta has effortlessly used the current situation to remind us of all that we take for granted. The piece brings an emotion of joy and contentment, yet stirs a subtle fear that change can take away that and more. Embrace goes beyond brush strokes to reach emotions that may not be at the forefront. Artistically a brilliant communication.
Sweta is one of my oldest and dearest friends, but oddly enough, that is not what draws me to her art. If you knew Sweta, you would know that she is a perfectionist, working meticulously on her self to get every detail falling perfectly in its place. Her art, however, is such an interestingly complimentary contrast: it is so pure, yet filled with techniques that are complex, the narrative is raw, yet the layers are many and there is so much equilibrium through her vivid mix of colours. I really enjoy being with her art, it is true and spending time around it brings that out in me too!
Sweta is a bold and courageous painter who is not afraid of destroying the painting that seemed beautifully done already for fellow artists like myself. From there she creates a whole new painting that is even richer and stronger that draws and freezes the viewer’s eyes and mind.
Combining startling ferocity with a delicacy of vision, Sweta’s art is courageous, vibrant, and honest. Her powerful portraits and figures pulse with energy, commanding respect. In her paintings, beauty is intimately linked to power
