Artist Bio

Hari Lualhati is a full-time artist who is permanently based in Cape Town, South Africa. She prefers her latest artworks to be called “SOULWORKS” because they are a direct connection to her soul. Her figurative subject being accompanied by animals and nature shows that we are all connected. Hari’s soulworks harmoniously combine impressive realism with fine details, amazing expressionism with her techniques, and symbolism that unfolds a story behind the elements used. Her soulworks are mirrors of golden life lessons, Aha Moments, and realizations that the artist aims to preserve and share with others. These soulworks are not only a delight to the eyes, their messages immediately connect to the heart and leave an unforgettable experience.
