Dilara Niriella

About the Artist

Dilara Niriella's work seeks to infuse colour and fun into everyday life.

Through the captivating use of trop le oil techniques, she invites viewers into momentary distraction and whimsical journeys. Niriella captures familiar and easily recognisable toys and objects through her detailed paintings by manipulating colour, light, and texture leading the audience towards playful deception.

Niriella works from a studio in Castle Hill. She won the The Young Archies (2016) and The Mosman Youth Art Prize (2018). She enjoys exploring concepts such as, consumerism, identity and familiarity through her art practice.

Note: Trompe l'oeil literally means to trick or deceive the eye in French. In art, it refers to the technique of depicting an object so realistically that it appears to jump off a two-dimensional surface.
