ABOUT


Bula Barua is an award-winning, internationally acclaimed Fine Artist and a published author of short stories and poetry.  She has won several prestigious global and national awards for her ability to capture and communicate emotion and aesthetics through her beautiful artworks.  Her works are included in many private and public collections and galleries around the world.   Bula's works are very high in demand, as collectors wait in anticipation for her next piece.

Bula has created her own style of fine art, called Luxury Fine Art - Blown Glass on Canvas.  Those not yet familiar with her work will recognize an illustrious and ethereal energy bursting from her colorful paintings.  Layers of artist blown glass, precious gems, crushed minerals, 24-karat gold, Swarovski crystals, raw floral pigments and resin create an undeniable 3 dimensional effect.   Each of her paintings is stunning and changes with the angles and placement of the viewer.  Bula has the rare ability to create a feeling of space and expansion with her art, and to express an idea with a minimum of effort.  

For her mixed-media pieces, Bula does not create limited edition prints.  So, each piece is a rare one of a kind artwork and high in demand. Bula also paints with oils and watercolors and offers limited edition reproductions of 250 for each painting onto aluminum.  Her aluminum limited editions are dramatic and possess a great depth.

Bula's artworks have expanded far beyond the canvas.  Bula's fine artwork was featured on Converse shoes in Italy. In addition, Bula was commissioned to travel to Hanzhou, China to personally design the famed 5-star beauty spa, Adlina.  The spa featured 14 of Bula's Limited Edition Prints, as well as her personal interior art design and touch.   

After falling in love with the Tampa Bay Area, Bula’s next chapter brings her to the beautiful city of St. Petersburg, where she has opened her newest gallery location. THE BULA BARUA GALLERY is now located in the heart of St. Petersburg's art scene, just across from the Sun Dial.
