Welcome to Mukta's Art

Kaneohe, HI


I was born in a small town in India, at the border of the northwestern desert state of Haryana and Rajasthan. At an early age, the vibrant colors and sweet melodies of nature and nomadic gypsies, called Banjaras, influenced her inner being and outer world. Her own Banjara existence yearned for stability, at least in her inner being, which is nonexistent in the outer world for obvious reasons of inherent uncertainty, being the very nature of our physical material world that we are made of.

So Munaluna Art was born out of the need to create symmetry out of asymmetry, harmony out of disharmony and order out of chaos in the explosively violent world where life itself has become an industrial commodity to satisfy the lust of the consumer, capitalistic world overpowered by the greed, anger and fear, created by the survival instinct of our reptilian brains. Her art is an effort to perceive and recreate higher dimensions of our spiritual world that is lost in the mist of lower dimensions of materialistic individuality (humanity), which is exploding like a cancer since it tries to engulf everything in its way, including itself.

Maybe this effort would reach out to the depths of compassion and understanding of the human spirit that is searching for itself so it can heal and grow again and create a world that is full of awe-inspiring beauty and laughter.

Art has been part of me since I was born. I have always been aware of being blessed with it. However, I only started taking formal classes at Windward Community College in Hawaii for the past few years only. I have an undergraduate degree in chemistry from a university in India and I graduated with a doctorate in chemistry from University of Hawaii in 1997. I also worked as a research scientist at MER Corporation Tucson, Arizona and Australian National University, Canberra between 1998-2001. I taught chemistry/biochemistry at Windward Community College between 2003-2006. At present, I am teaching chemistry/biochemistry (part-time) at Hawaii Pacific University while pursuing my art education at Windward Community College concurrently. Lately, I am enjoying sculpting as well.

My other interests are henna art, reading, writing poetry, cooking, hiking, traveling, yoga, martial arts (Silat), vipassana Meditation, homeopathy, ayurvedic medicine and art Therapy (alternate healing techniques) and neurochemistry.
