Reflections by Osheen Siva
Osheen Siva’s first piece for #Startgoa 2019 has been created as an ode to the strength and vibrancy of Goan women. Made in the characteristic style of the artist, the mural is set in a retro-futuristic landscape, encouraging its spectators to reflect on the theme of ‘the future is now.' Siva, whose body of work prominently explores gender and its intersection with society, has made her piece in Goa using bright colours, featuring two sisters as its main protagonists.
The mural’s colour palette and kaleidoscopic design are directly informed by the vibrant and bold aesthetics the artist observed in attires worn by women in the city. Prominently using neon green, pink and yellow, it builds on the parallels of colour Siva observed in Goan women’s dresses and the colour spectrum she usually makes use of in her practice.
