About Jemisha Maadhavji

I am a figurative painter based in Leicester, U.K. I explore individuals from different cultural backgrounds, personalities and genders through symbolism and narrative. I am in search for beauty. My paintings are a contrast between realism and expressionism from thick textured paint to smooth delicate painting.
