Science, Art, Litt, Science based Art & Science Communication
Networking Opportunity: meet Dr. Krishna Kumari Challa - a woman who deeply fell in love with science!
Of all the compliments she got till now, the best one, according to Dr. Krishna, is from an American scientist and a total stranger. He told her, "Krishna, you are a voice of reason in cacophony of self-confirmative opinion."
"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." John Quincy Adams
Dr. Krishna Kumari Challa did her M.Sc. in Life Sciences and Ph.D. in Microbiology. Her area of research is toxins produced by Microorganisms in food and how to control them and protect food from these Microbes and toxins. She published several peer-reviewed research papers in science. She is a self-taught artist who specializes in Art From Science. She is also a writer, a poet, a designer, a social activist and a network creator and do several other things. She is an international science-art consultant and reviewer. She explores the relationship between Art, Literature and Science while communicating science on her network, Sci-Art Lab. She wrote more than 600 articles on various subjects and at present writing books on the subject of sci-art and litt. interactions and science communication. Although she painted Nature in water colours in childhood, she has been actively creating art - especially science based one - since 2006.
She communicates science through art and literature and published a research paper on science-art too.
She did one solo exhibition, “Cosmic Show of Science”, in Hyderabad, India in 2008, group shows in Hyderabad, Kolkatta, Jodhpur, Goa and Jaipur in India in 2009, and a group show in Copenhagen (Denmark, Europe) in 2010.She participated in Izmir Biennial in May 2011 ( Turkey) and in a group show in Italy along with Italian artists in the first week of March, 2011. She exhibited her works in the first international science-art conference in Moscow in April, 2012.
While science is her first love, art and literature for Dr.Challa are life itself (Somebody asked Dr. Krishna a Q after reading this: And her reply was: 'Yes, I would give my life for my love!'). She firmly believes they should represent everything associated with life. As modern day life is closely intertwined with the culture of Science and Technology, she wants science too to be represented in the world of art and literature. She thinks science and art are two sides of the same coin. Exploring this relationship between art, literature and science is a beautiful experience of a fulfilled life!
Although Dr. Challa writes stories and poems too, she mainly writes on science, science - art - literature relationships for her network.
Communicating science is her main aim and non-negotiable passion!

Recently I was told about some "Geology based Art". 'Wonderful', I thought immediately after hearing about it and before viewing the art, 'How artists are contributing to understanding the world of science is really laudable'. Laudable? Only until I saw the actual art work. The moment I saw it my view changed!
Because I was expecting to see a work of art that makes science easy and more interesting. But all that I saw was an artist's point of view. Aesthetics and only beauty of Earth…Continue
My interview in the October issue of Interalia Magazine
An online magazine dedicated to the interactions between the arts, sciences and consciousness.
“Anything I do should be able to facilitate real progress of the human kind…That is why I consider following science and communicating it as the top most priorities in my life”. Artist, poet, scientist and writer, Krishna Kumari Challa, communicates science through art and literature. In this exclusive interview she discusses her…Continue
An artist said this recently: “Science always pushes for a rational explanation for our world, but eschews the notion that there may be two or more opposing ideas that could equally stand up to scrutiny, forcing us to choose and defend one idea over the rest. Art, on the other hand allows for —and even encourages—the clash and irresolution of conflicting thoughts, but often falls short of providing answers that exist in a greater context.
My view on this:
But, true scientists…Continue
One of my artist friends creates lots of art works. At least ten to fifteen in a month. Most of the works are landscapes and nature-related. It is as if some machine is working in her studio producing innumerable works in no time. And sells them cheap, attracting people and making lots of money in the process. She copies from photographs, pictures in news papers and magazines. She need not put much of an effort mentally. I am sure she can paint thousands of these things in her life…Continue
