About ArtistMilburn Cherian had to depend on her comprehensive communication course from the National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad, for the basics of art and aesthetics. But before the NID course, she had done a course in textile history and design at the Sophia Polytechnic in Mumbai, which she says, "Was my launching pad into the world of art." Salvador Dali, master of Surrealism, Heironymous Bosch and the German Romantic Caspar David Fredrich have influenced her style. Although Cherian takes inspiration from nature, and reality, on canvas you find only an interpretation of that reality. She lives and works out of New Delhi.
