Alyina (b. 1995) is a London-based visual artist from New Delhi, India. She is currently finishing her MA in painting at Royal College of Art. She paints magical paintings. Some of these are magical landscapes partly drawn from memories of Kashmir and Delhi, partly from imagination, and partly from dreams. Some of her paintings are meant to function as magical talismans of a sort -- imbued with protective or destructive properties.
She works by building up thin layers of paint to create her vibrant strange worlds. She works on a range of surfaces including paper, board, plexiglass, and canvas. Her works range from the very small to the very large.
