The Strié is a popular form of faux painting using glaze and paint brushes to create a soft natural striped texture. When I read about it, I instantly fell in love with it and wanted to try it right away... but paint what...?? ..Incidentally "strei" in Hindi means women, I somehow wanted to put both these words and meanings into one painting and call my collection "Strei- the women"......
Take a look..
I have highlighted two aspects in these paintings. One is the "sindoor" and "bindi", popularly significant with married women in India. and the other being the chandelier earrings... because we are so famous for all our bling bling... :)
I have plans of making a entire collection with different Indian accessories along with incorporating Strei in it. Hope you all liked it...xoxo.
