About

Selva Veeriah is a Melbourne based artist who left a career in law to pursue his passion for painting. He is of Malaysian-Indian heritage. His work, which comprises paintings, poems and musings, is about an inward journey towards self-discovery.  Selva's distinctive painting style employs basic geometric shapes and naivety. The artworks reveal unusual but lyrical arrangements of colours, shapes, and lines that calm the mind.
