Jyoti Hattarki

Jyoti Hattarki

Jyoti Hattarki completed her Master’s degree in Fine Arts from the Gulbarga University in Karnataka, and was awarded the Gold Medal from the University in 1995. She has held several joint shows with her partner, Shantkumar Hattarki, in Mumbai and in Bangalore.

An extremely sensitive artist, her figures are expressive with a lot of character and are uniquely characterized with long noses and small foreheads painted in a contrasting colour to the face. There is tremendous detail in gestures, attire and facial expressions in her paintings and an inherent sweetness in all her artworks that depict couples.
