Ribaka Nikam is a young achiever; a young painter, sculptor and ceramist, who uses every form that best suits her creations, that when finished, have a life and story of their own. Bright hues and open emotions in her paintings herald positivity and the layers aver to deeper thoughts and nuances of the artist’s mindscape.

Her muse is an in depth study of the Child Buddha, whose visage she uses as a representation of physical form. At places, the visage becomes a metaphor for life’s processes. In any case, it depicts various ‘moods’ that influence and abide by everyday routines, pleasure and pain alike.

Ribaka introduces a decorative element in her paintings, where she layers the visage with intricate storytelling, in miniature format; with calligraphy at places; while at others, with random patterns that bring the painting alive, uplifting it and the spirits of the viewer.

Ribaka’s paintings are full of intrigue, as each work of art unfolds with a distinctive tale, engaging the viewer and keeping him occupied with the form, colour and rendition, long after he has moved away from it physically.

A thoroughly enjoyable, must-see exhibition.
