Alyina Zaidi

Alyina (b 1995) is a London based artist from New Delhi and Srinagar. She has recently graduated from Royal College of Art with an MA in Painting. She paints scenes of a fictional, fantasy world she has created. Her paintings reflect her cross cultural background — she has lived in India, the USA, and now is planted in the UK. She loves Kota, Uniara, Mughal, and Safavid miniatures and looks to them for inspiration almost every day. The colours in her paintings are mostly influenced by colours found in these miniatures, by memories, and by the environments around her.

Alyina's work has been included in Tomorrow 2021 White Cube, London, MAPA Fine Art, The Hague, and Bowes Parris in London, among others. She holds an MA Painting from the Royal College Of Art, London (2021). Shivering Trees, Curling Flames is her first time exhibiting in Belgium.
