Nuggehalli Badarina, Padmashree

Badarina Nuggehalli is an Indo-Canadian artist based in Vancouver, driven by a desire to capture the diverse emotions of people from various backgrounds through her art. Raised in India, she was instilled with values such as kindness, love, and humility. However, it was in Canada where she found the strength and courage to embrace her true self and appreciate the rich tapestry of cultures around her.

As a child, Badarina Nuggehalli realized that her art was often judged by society's standards and limitations. This realization initially led her to believe that art couldn't truly exist without freedom of expression, causing her to momentarily abandon her passion. However, in 2016, she rediscovered herself through her art, rekindling her confidence and determination.

After years of honing his style that blended his street life of painting famous icons, comic book characters and wildlife Porter has created a bold technique that is undoubtedly noticed as nothing other than “ That’s a Porter!”
