Shan Re

“For me art is an attempt to bypass the physical world and discover the boundless energy in the universe . It is a journey into my true authentic self and finding the rhythm of life.”

Style: Expressionism

Medium: Acrylic on Canvas

“listening to the quite voice within me ..
exploring infinite dimensions within myself..
standing on the thresh hold of new experience...
I have been painting
the Canvas of my life ..
drop by drop ..word by word..
to unwrap my own destiny..
Passion flows through me
Like a stream of colour
In the flames of passion
I create breathtakingly
beautiful masterpieces
From the deep sea of mystery,
Somewhere between
Memories and fantasies
Between echoes of silence
and hope .. I am intoxicated
and addicted to the power creativity ..
my inner fire is what keeps me going “

About Shan Re


Shan Re is one of the most versatile artists from India. Shan lives and works in Bangalore. The intensity and frequency of her creative output is enormous. Intuitively moving between mediums, Shan has continuously evolved, experimenting and exploring a wide array of subjects and genres. Shan’s art involves various disciplines from drawing, painting, poetry and sculpture to installations. Her paintings are a spontaneous flow of powerful feelings and emotions. Nature is a metaphor in her paintings, and she works in many layers towards a balanced harmony. As a true artist she sees life as an abundant opportunity to explore infinite dimensions within herself. We all have several energies within us that shape our personal rhythm to achieve higher consciousness. Color, she says, is her vital force through which she communicate with her viewers. She creates her own personal colours of bliss with a strong statement of positivity, hope and spirituality . Even though her language is abstract she hopes that that the viewer will simply fall in love with her visual expression and the healing power of her colour palette. She is a dynamic and prolific artist who is actively involved with many fundraising art shows and auctions. Her works are found in prominent public and private collections.
