The landscapes of Radhika Bianchi do not represent the land of a single nation or region. Instead, they reflect Bianchi’s cultural background and her many travels: she was born and raised in Calcutta, India; spent her adolescence in Los Angeles, California; and now lives in Santiago, Chile. Bianchi has lived in several other countries, including England and Mexico, and her father is Italian and her mother is Chilean. As a result, Bianchi considers herself a citizen of the world, having experienced many different cultures and histories. Her appreciation of life and the opportunity to discover its rich beauty is echoed in her calm, detailed landscapes. No matter what country Bianchi is in, she feels at home in nature, paying attention to its minute features. She channels the colors of India into her acrylic paintings, gleaning immense influence from Indian traditional art and mythology, in addition to the art of the Renaissance, Baroque, and Impressionist eras.

Bianchi’s paintings immortalize the ever-shrinking natural beauty of our planet. Since she has witnessed first-hand many of Earth’s natural wonders, she is uniquely positioned to honor them in her artwork, and aims to remind us to do our part to protect our planet’s sweeping landscapes. Her interpretations of nature communicate a sense of universal belonging, reminding the viewer that no matter where they are, they are allowed to take a step back and feel at home.

From Calcutta to Los Angeles and finally, Santiago, I have spent most of my life in urban environments. Despite the vast distances and cultural differences, all three cities are lands plastered in concrete overcast with the perpetual yellowgray of smog. As a child, I suffered from lung disease and the occasional retreat into nature would breathe new life into me, which is still true today, as an adult. I find comfort and strength in the sturdy tree trunks, joy in rushing rivers, peace in the rustling of trees in the wind, vitality in the flash and clash of thunderstorms. Through art, I immortalize a moment in nature; whether it be the droplets of water resting on the waxy surface of a leaf or the vastness of a forest landscape viewed from atop a hill. The challenge is in capturing the diverse patterns and textures in paint, and I rise to it using a variety of brush shapes and sizes and different techniques ranging from pointillism to impressionism to careful blending. I love the wide range of colors I can use when painting landscapes and plants, and I’m especially fond of using purples and dark blues for shadows. However I approach a painting, it always requires patience and a willingness to learn, and I feel that I have grown by the end of each project. In this way, I can soothe my own soul and hopefully, the souls of those who see my artwork. For
