Ramani Astro Art (Diana Petrulyte Rodriguez Urbizt


Vilma Diana (Petrulyte) Rodriguez Urbiztondo known by pseudonym Ramani. I was born in Lithuania which was part of the USSR at that time. I received my formal artistic and academic education in Lithuania starting at the age of 13. My studies began at Kaunas Art school, studying under Antanas Martinaitis and Alfonsas VilpiŔauskas. I continued my studies in Russia, Saint Petersburg (formerly Leningrad) studying painting in the tradition of Russian realism.

After my studies in Russia I moved to India and joined Lucknow Bhatkande Music University studying Indian classical dances, and Vedic philosophy.

I consider myself a cosmopolitan artist as I enjoy experiencing a diversity of cultural traditions of different countries around the world. I feel all those experiences enriched my art in so many ways, contributing to an eclectic variety of styles including 'Old Masters', 'Impressionism', 'Expressionism', abstract and my own unique style, 'Hippie Cubism' and large scale murals. My mediums include oil, acrylics, and pastels.
