about artist

The contemporary Indian artist Shalina Vichitra was born in 1973. She completed her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts in 1996 from the College of Art, New Delhi. In 1998 she graduated with a Master’s degree in Fine Arts with a gold medal from the same institute. She is the recipient of the Sahitya Kala Parishad and the Swapan Biswas Award, both of which she received in 1996. She was also awarded the Human Resource Development Scholarship from the Government of India. Her main focus is cartography and she is particularly interested in how these maps are continuously redrawn in the modern world. Her works address the constructed spaces that we have created for ourselves and the constant struggle of the urban living situation. The artist herself states “I like to engage in constructing deconstructing, positioning - dis-positioning .... locating - dislocating, peeling layers and evolving these thoughts and associations give rise to an experiential space.”

She had her first group exhibition in 1999 titled ‘Aakriti’ at the Art Junction, New Delhi. Other important group exhibitions include ‘Emerging India’, The Royal College of Art, London in 2008. An important solo exhibition of hers was ‘Topographies of the Self’ at Anant Art Gallery, New Delhi in 2005. She also participated in the 10 Year Anniversary Exhibition of Gallerie Müller and Plate, Munich in 2008. Her most recent exhibition which drew a lot of critical acclaim was titled ‘A PLace to Which We Belong’ held at the Gallery Art Motif, Delhi in 2018. The artist currently lives and works in New Delhi.
