Hemali Vadalia

Hemali Vadalia liked to paint but had never taken it seriously as a career option of choice. She was working as a programmer in the IT industry. After spending two and a half years in the IT sector, she happened to visit a painting exhibition by Vasudeo Kamath with her school teacher at Nehru Centre.

She was mesmerized by the play of light and the shades in his paintings. That’s when she decided to consider arts seriously. She did her masters in design animation and film design from the Industrial Design Centre, IIT Bombay, which exposed her to all kinds of different media in illustration and animation.

When starting work on a new assignment, the first question she tackles is what the project is supposed to convey. “If I am doing it for myself, then I don’t think much, I just go with the flow. And enjoy the process of creating it. If it is water-colours, I like to see the way colours get mixed to create a new shade. If it is clay, I like to create textures and shape the clay. If it is commissioned work, I make sure that the choice of medium appeals to the target age group. Detailing is very important to me, whatever be the medium,”she says.

People and characters inspire her the most. She says her interest lies entirely in figurative illustrations and in the opportunity of exploring different characters.

She is inspired by the work of Gustav Klimt and Monet. Among contemporary artists, she is influenced by Vasudeo Kamath, Jon J Muth and also Carlos Meira for his paper cutout work. “Animators like Michael Dudok de Wit, Caroline Leaf, Lotte Reiniger to name a few and Illustrations in ‘Calvin and Hobbes’ by Bill Waterson are my favourites,” she adds.

New places inspire her, seeing things that she has never seen before. Otherwise a library/ book store is good enough for inspiration. She says, “I visit art galleries and go for long walks without really thinking too much. Many a times, bright pleasant sunshine and a small trek is good enough for inspiration and it helps to dig out old inspirations and ideas. I do take photographs that I use as a reference for painting/ illustrations.”
