Biography

 

I am a visual artist who explores interdisciplinary genres in my art practice, such as painting, mixed media, photography, and sculptural installations.

 

The world of art, with its myriad expressions, fascinated me from a very young age to today. Over these years, I also received some accolades for my works, including my first group show in 2005 in Bangalore, India, where I had the privilege of showing my paintings along with some highly respected Indian artists.

Born in New Delhi, India, my early career spanned work with leading Indian and multi-national corporations across different cities in India and Singapore. In 2009, I decided to make a career change moving beyond my 18 years in the corporate world to pursue my inherent passion for art full time.

 

In the following years, I immersed myself in my art deeply, returning to school to study fine arts. In 2014, I graduated with a BA (Honors) in Fine Arts awarded by Goldsmiths, University of London, UK, in partnership with The LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore. Subsequently, I also spent time in The Art Students League of New York, NYC, under the mentorship of a master instructor and accomplished artist -Bruce Dorfman, as part of my continuing education in Arts. I received a prestigious Grant and scholarship for my work during this period. 

Since 2011, my works have been exhibited in various shows and art fairs across the US and internationally. Some notable ones are - Art on Paper 2019, New York City, Texas Contemporary Art Fair 2018, Houston, Affordable Art Fair (AAF), Singapore Edition, and 2015 Singapore LA ART SHOW 2018 at the LA Convention Centre, LA. 

 

In 2015, my husband and I moved to New York City to pursue our careers. I live and work in NYC.

Artist Statement

My work celebrates the innocuous, ephemeral beauty of the mundane and poetics of our everyday lives by looking at the world in unfamiliar, wondrous ways. Intrigue, chance, and spontaneity are crucial elements of my work, and I seek to translate the transactional nature of our existence into these experiential narratives. The eclectic experiences of living and working in various urban landscapes and cultures across the East and the West have vastly influenced my art practice. My cultural roots and memories inevitably find their way in this conscious and subconscious expression where I engage paints, digital images, rice paper, wax, and objects from everyday life in unconventional ways.
