The brilliance of colors in her works is the striking feature in every Seema Kohli painting. The intricate, profound and expertly crafted brushwork that more often than not looks ethereal. Her brush excavates, discovers and brings into focus, sights and sounds of this world within a world, capturing creation in creation, unearthing the cycle of life from under the miscellany of living. And
it's from deep inside the womb that she gets her inspiration, as if she is an insider, giving us glimpses, stories and songs only she is witness to. In 2009, she received the prestigious Gold Award at the Florence Biennale for her video installation, Swayamsiddha-Myth, Mind and Movement. Important works of hers have found their way into public and private collections across the world, most recently at the Rubin Museum, New York; the New Delhi International Airport and the Indian Defense Ministry.
She has also received the Young FICCI Ladies Organisation Women Achiever’s Award and the Lalit Kala National Award for Women in 2008 - one of the highest honours an artist can receive in India.
Seema Kohli currently lives and works in New Delhi.
