Deepa Harkishore Koshaley is an abstract painter and landscape architect born in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India in 1980. In 2005, she re-oriented in America, landing in Dallas, Texas, where she still works and lives. Highly productive and spontaneous, her work delights in bright color and meditations on the happiest and most aspirational aspects of our being. Her creative activity is shaped by a rootedness in Hindu’s symbolism, music, and mythology—as well as an engagement with the West’s mostly-secular conversation with painterly abstraction.
She holds a master’s in landscape architecture with additional studies in Visual Communication from the University of Texas at Arlington, and a bachelor’s in architecture from Pune University in Maharashtra, India. She is a honorary grant receipt by the Mesquite Art Council. Her work has won a number of awards and has a place in the collections of corporate offices throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Area. Her paintings have been exhibited at Irving Arts Center, Mary Tomas Gallery, the Mesquite Arts Center, the South Dallas Cultural Center, Gallery 8680, the Other Art Fair, the Irving Art Association, and the Lincoln Experience Center, among others. She earned an artist’s residency at Serendipity Labs in Frisco, Texas, and has won profiles in D Magazine, Dallas Yoga Magazine, Irving Community Television Network, and other platforms. She’s taken leadership roles with the Texas Visual Arts Association, the Dallas Art Dealers Association, the Irving Arts Association, and the Visual Arts Guild of Frisco. An RYT 500 yoga teacher, she’s also assumed leadership roles with The Art of Living Foundation. She is currently working at One River School Frisco (Art + Design) as a director.
Koshaley is holding a yoga and art workshop November 3, and an art and mediation workshop November 6 respectively. To purchase tickets, click below:
