ABOUT


Hello, I’m Amrita. I’m a contemporary artist and writer from London, currently living in Dallas, TX.

I am, by training, an Architect with a Masters Degree in Architecture from The University of Nottingham, UK. I have worked with architectural firms in Mumbai (VM & Associates), London (BDP), Kolkata (Agrawal & Agrawal) and Paris.

Art has always been a major part of my life --- one of the reasons I chose to go for architecture, in the first place. Following my career in architecture, I went for a Mixed Media Arts Residency, for a year in Nottingham Trent University. My artworks have been exhibited in shows in Mumbai (New & Wanting, 2014), Kolkata (Expressions, 2018), and London (The Annual Soho Contemporary Art Show, 2010).

As a writer, I have worked as a commissioned editor and book designer with publishing houses in UK and India, which has led me to work on my own books, which are currently works in progress. I have written fiction pieces for Bridge Eight and Hippocampus Magazine. My non-fiction pieces have appeared in publications like The Writing Cooperative, Huffington Post, Tripoto, The Bangalore Mirror, Honest Cooking, Grafitti and TechinAsia.


STATEMENT


Travel is the heart and soul of true enlightenment. My art is heavily inspired by my travels, the people I meet when I travel, the daily mundane and the artificially built environment that we have created around us. My abstract style merges fluid art, mark-making, and harsh brush strokes with ink detailing. It explores the beauty of wabi-sabi, the beauty of mistakes and randomness, all through vibrant colours. With all my pieces I try to hit the spot where discomfort meets unfinishedness.
