I am Janaki Injety, a self taught contemporary artist. Painting has been my passion since my childhood. I create Paintings that are built on my strong aesthetic sense as well as my interest in the changing world of today. I started drawing at the age of three. My Parents and my uncle Mr. Konada Sri Hari Rao noticed the zeal for Art and encouraged me to participate in Painting contests from Primary School Level.
I won several painting contests at school level, college level and also at University Level. My Paintings are featured in many exhibitions and Art festivals. Some of Paintings are in private collections in India and Abroad. I am also a freelance illustrator for some of the local and online magazines. I often use contemporary ideas combined with strong traditional techniques. As a subsistence hunter, I collect the materials for my work from the every day life I face and the burning problems in the society.
I feel that “Paintings are the unspoken emotions captured on Canvas” I take the subject for my paintings from the rural nativity,human emotions and feelings. I Depict in the emotions, feeling or the theme of the paintings through the colors I choose. I Don’t draw eyes and lips in my paintings as I try to express that through the colors. Coming to my educational background, I received my Masters degree in Computers from Acharya Nagarjuna University, Andhra Pradesh and I am now working as a Senior Software Testing Engineer in an MNC in Hyderabad. I have also done BFA painting and MFA Painting from Karnataka State Open University, Mysore. With brush on one hand and bytes on the other, enjoying my work and doing paintings simultaneously. I continue to explore new ways to share my cultural traditions. I live in Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh with my parents.
