Jaya Duvvuri grew up in Southern India and is a resident of Jersey City, NJ. Her practice draws from the memories and culture of India, the inspiration of Japanese aesthetics, and the influence of Western modernism.
I grew up in India and made New York my other home, and art has been one constant amidst all the changes. I like to paint with water-based medium and explore the many expressions of it, either through traditional watercolor techniques or Sumi-e.
Living life is an art in itself, and art helps me to notice the ordinary in everyday life.
I am grateful to many wonderful teachers and especially to my Sumi-e sensei Koho Yamamoto.
“If you wish, my art would be that of living: each second, each breath is a work which is inscribed nowhere, which is neither visual nor cerebral.” - Marcel Duchamp
