Despite her being born and raised in Hong Kong, Riya Chandiramani has a strong connection to her Indian heritage—surrounded by Indian art all her life. Expressing her creativity from a young age, Riya associated her childhood with drawing, colouring and painting, cultivating her passion for art while studying Art and Design. Riya started to recognise art as a language, using her artwork as a mode of communicating messages, whether about her identity, visions, or insights on the world and its people. Completing her studies in communications and fine art at the University of Pennsylvania, Riya is also designing and illustrating children’s books.
