Keshani Douglas

“I love the noisy scratching sounds of my pastels on paper whilst painting and mark making. I sometimes feel compelled to use both hands simultaneously to paint in a vigorous fashion as I get drawn into the vacuum of colour, interpretation and expression.”

More about Keshani Douglas

We are very pleased to introduce to you Keshani Douglas.

Her work "Buddah Lounge Meditation" was selected for this year's Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and sold last week on the first day. A great accolade for a new artist and we're delighted to have her very latest work here at Talos in our Summer Exhibition.


Keshani Douglas is a Wiltshire based artist who was born in London.  Her focus lies in painting interesting locations and situations.


Having grown up in an artistic background Keshani is a self taught artist who has been lucky enough to understand art as second nature. She is greatly influenced by her late grandfather, Harold Philip Matthews who had been Head of Department of Painting at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts.


Keshani enjoys working in soft pastels, pencils and inks where she can focus on colour, movement and vibrancy for a more intense result in an impressionistic way with a sense of abstract. She also loves to work with oils as well as acrylic paints. It is important for her artwork to be bold and lively. “I don’t specialise in a particular subject matter with my painting. If I see something that I want to paint, then I do.”


Keshani is an international artist who works not only from her studio based in Wiltshire but also her studio based on the island of Gozo, near Malta where she travels frequently throughout the year. She is greatly inspired by the different locations because they provide different colours, shapes, textures, and light.
