About Parul

British Artist Parul Tolentino

 

Coming from a generation of convenience it's been important to re-define my connection to nature. I am driven by the importance of biodiversity and it’s state of constant flux to survive. 

In my work I draw on the strength of fluidity and the balance of complexity alongside open space. This exploration helps me to understand and navigate a life that is both beautiful and unrelenting.

Creating and appreciating art has brought me solace since childhood, now it is my way to derive purpose and seek peace. 

 

bio

The sound and smell of waves and the feeling of salt on the skin are reminiscent of Parul's favourite memories growing up living by the sea. She seeks out the coast at any chance and the ocean remains one of her biggest loves.

In 2018 she started painting daily after work to relax and then took a course on Sustainability at the Cambridge Institute of Sustainability leadership. 

Elevating her sustainable and ethical standards of consumption is a value she  works to incorporate into all aspects of her life.

Parul worked as a commercial jewellery designer & business owner for 15 years after studying at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, followed by a few years in retail consultancy sales. 

  

about sustainability

Each original painting is painted on high quality watercolour paper or 90% bamboo paper with high pigment paint with excellent colour fastness.

Every limited edition archival Giclee print is printed on *bamboo paper. 

*There is less water wasted in the cultivation of bamboo than traditional paper. Bamboo starts to regrow as soon as it is cut down and is naturally white, strong & soft so no chemicals are required to achieve this, making it a useful and sustainable natural product.
