About

Selva Veeriah is a self-taught contemporary abstract artist who left a career in law to pursue his passion for painting. He is of Malaysian-Indian heritage and currently lives and works in Melbourne. Selva has participated in a total of ten group and solo shows in the last five years. The body of work - which comprises paintings, poems and musings - is about an inward journey. His signature style combines basic shapes, flat colours, and lyrical lines to delicately balance naivety and understated sophistication. No two pieces are alike, and yet all the artworks have a common thread: colourful and playful.
