Artist Nitasha Jaini creates paintings about the world around her. She is a city bred educated empowered woman who has chosen the path to be an artist against family pressure. Living in the millennium city of Gurgoan, the skyline of the environment around her, inhabits her art. The works use the male form to express the subtle undertones of urban lifestyle. Her artworks are currently displayed at a solo exhibition titled, “Flower Butterfly Swan”, at Café on 3, Holiday Inn, Mayur Vihar, Phase – I from Nov 1st till Dec 1st 2023.
About her work in 1995 eminent art critic Keshav Malik wrote, ‘Thank God for a woman painter who is not banking on her own gender but on the so-called opposite sex. This shows something close to objectivity or at least an intellectual curiosity’ Keshav Malik, Delhi Times.
Her canvases have a soft hue, a gentle merging such that the muted under tones express the hidden inner meaning of existence. Colour is applied in layers, the objects painted are the artist unique language.
1.White lotus- The painting has a white lotus on top , which is a symbol of Divinity. The stamped men in this work are the city males who are the work force, the force behind the corporate. They merge with the background and form another layer in this painting. her aesthetic sensibility is visible when she tries to play with elements of visual  pleasure while creating the art. Beauty plays an important role in her rendering, as paintings need to give joy  and aesthetic pleasure, even when they talk of serious absorbing issues.
2.The silver butterflies: are painted as a layer on the top edge of this dewy green painting. The gentleness of the colour is visible as it shows up the painted objects. The line drawing of the cybercity runs across the canvas becoming a backdrop against which the men go about their daily work. a celebration of the millennium city , this is a contemporary painting.
3. Bronze age in the city:
In a manicured city, the flowers are also manicured and have a specific place. The jungle elements are not encouraged in a cyber-city. The flowers in this work are thus stamped on, they are the same flower in a manicured row. They add an element of natural beauty to the canvas. The bronze colour adds a muted celebratory touch, giving the painting a joyous aesthetic appeal.
4. Lawyers statement: This acrylic paint on  paper painting is framed in a laser cut frame. The painting shows lawyers moving about, and the design like features encircle them creating a continuity in the painting. The central portion has a white single figure, which is blissful surrounded by blooming flowers. The work s a contrast between the central figure and the surrounding activity.
5.Skyline BPO :
The lotus in this painting ,signifies Divinity .The layers of the city are visible in this painting. Artist›s observations of the changes in a expanding city  have been drawn on this work .She has worked with muted pink , violent colors , and deep reds to create layers of meaning on this canvas. The Divine lotus shines on a layer of shimmering white, while the city pulsates with many layers within in itself.
