Piyaali’s paintings are an abstraction exploring the realm of her emotional experience or reflections on her surroundings. Her preferred media are acrylic on canvas and India ink on paper.
The style of her artwork is inspired and influenced by her cultural roots to India and Rasa Art. She oscillates between geometric abstract to express her emotions, and the organic, emotional intuition of expressionism, often layered in the same work. The colors to evoke the mood or idea are layered in geometric forms first in the background are later juxtaposed with strong brush strokes forming abstract figures- a combination of geometric abstraction layered and emphasized with figurative expressionism.
