Kiran Ahluwalia was born in the UK and grew up in Tanzania. She now lives in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi. Kiran is a photographer and a graphic designer – both facets of art that she is passionate about. She has an amazing eye for the right frame, and she captures the essence of a moment through the lens of her camera. Kiran creates fabulous stories through her photographs, which she then enhances by playing with light, shadows, hues and colours to create the desired effect. The bright colours that characterize her photographs are reminiscent of the Indian Ocean. These same vibrant colours are reflective of the colours of the positive chakras as found in Indian thought-centres of spiritual power. Kiran’s images and her creative use of colour have been spectacularly portrayed on designer scarves and sarongs, on men’s pocket handkerchiefs, on canvases, and as home decor and gift items. Kiran’s work is on show at Talisman from the 14th of March.
