NZ Art Show Online

Anita Madhav


Welcome to my art world.
For those of you who may not know me, I'm Anita Madhav. I have been exhibiting at the NZ Art Show since the very beginning, and have been exhibiting as a solo panel artist since 2014.
I'm a self-taught artist and work as a full-time artist out of my home studio, The Art Box. I have been creating art of many different forms since my early childhood, and painting and exhibiting over the past 20 years.
For those who visit me at the art show, you would have seen my artwork evolve over time and observed how I like to exhibit new styles of work every year. It is truly rewarding for me when people visit my exhibit and comment on the changes they see. My initial art inspiration began from playing with colours and textures, which then took me down an abstract path which has now led into a strong kiwiana presence in my work. Over the past eighteen months, I have been delving into vibrant colours and painting flowers, but nothing can pull me away from my passion of NZ birds, particularly my favorite – the tui. My love for the tui's is evident in many of my works and with it, I'm sure you will fall in love with them too.
My interest in exhibiting work came from my involvement in coordinating the very successful ACG Strathallan College (Karaka) exhibition from 2003-2011. This gave me the opportunity to meet other talented artists and find the passion for my own art. I continue to be involved in numerous group and solo exhibitions around the country and my artwork is sold around NZ in selected galleries.
I live in rural Manukau and absolutely enjoy living amongst a beautiful, picturesque environment of the surrounding rolling hills and my garden – another piece of art I’ve created with my family.
When I’m not painting, I supply my prints, greeting cards, acrylic photo blocks and other gift products to selected stores around NZ. One of my main gallery/gift stores being the former Artport at the International Airport which enabled my kiwiana-inspired works to make their way to every corner of the world.
Creating art is my form of relaxation, with every stroke of my brush and the continuing skills I learn along the way bring a heartfelt satisfaction to myself and the purchaser of my artwork.
Enjoy my exhibition! Feel free to video call me to see my art up closer. Selected prints and commissions are available.
