Prof. Jyoti Nagpal
MA French Literature – Boston College
Professor (Hony.) Amity School of Fine Arts
Adviser, Amity Art Foundation
Educated in USA, France and India, Jyoti completed her graduate studies in Romance Languages majoring in French Literature, Culture and Civilization from Boston College, Massachusetts.
Being a keen student of French language, literature and culture, Jyoti taught French for more than twenty years in Chandigarh, Kashmir and Delhi, before she finally took up painting as a full time activity.
Widely travelled in Europe, North America, Africa, South East Asia & the Middle East, Jyoti has keenly observed the richness and diversity of nature, and found in these the inspiration for much of her work.
Jyoti was introduced to the 'art world' by His Excellency K. R. Narayanan, the President of India and the contemporary artist, architect and sculptor of international fame Padma Vibhushan Satish Gujral.
Inspired by the nineteenth and twentieth century impressionists, Jyoti chose the medium of oil painting as an art form and mastered the difficult technique of 'wet on wet' to express her fascination with nature. In this endeavour, Jyoti has brilliantly broken away from the conventional rules and restrictions of traditional oil painting while, at the same time remaining faithful to nature. For her, "A painting, like a poem, is the expression of an idea in a condensed form. It offers a different interpretation to different individuals and is a unique experience for the artist and the viewer alike."
Jyoti, which means light, is truly an 'artist of light'. She infuses her work with brilliance so that the canvas seems to glow from within. Light bounces off her canvas to create different moods. Seen in varying intensity of light, the mood of each painting changes magically from diffused & mysterious twilight to sparkling daylight.
