Born in 1951, Anjani Reddy is considered a doyen amongst the Hyderabad artists. She graduated in Painting at the College of Fine Arts and Architecture (now JNAFAU), Hyderabad, and has numerous accolades to her credit including the AIFACS Award, New Delhi in 1997. Since 1977, Anjani has held several group and solo shows of her works across India and in UK, USA, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok, Jakarta, Germany & Sweden.
Anjani’s blend of images, design and tones lets her bring out graceful female figures, amidst lush, natural, environments. Reddy’s compositions often seem to have elements from fantasy and just pure imagination.
The artist spent twenty-five years teaching at her alma mater, Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture and Fine Arts University. She is now retired and devotes her time to painting.
