Riya Chandiramani was born in Hong Kong in 1994. Surrounded by Indian art and constant encouragement to express her creativity, Riya associates her childhood with drawing, coloring and painting. Her love for art truly cultivated in high school while preparing for her A-Level in Art and Design. This experience necessitated a thorough, well-researched thought process behind the inspiration and planning of a series of pieces pertaining to a common theme or subject matter. Riya started to recognize art as a language and aimed to use her pieces as mode of communicating messages, whether about her identity, visions, or insights on the world and its people. She is currently pursuing a B.A. in Communication with minors in Fine Art and Chinese at the University of Pennsylvania.
