About the Artist
Divyanshi (b.1993 | Uttar Pradesh, India ) is an Oil Painter and Interior Designer residing and working in Toronto, Ontario. Her paintings are born out of the collaboration between her and her rich Indian heritage. It's a visual narrative of the exchange that goes on between the two in the studio as she discovers collectibles from her inheritance. A concoction of simple objects that arise out of this connection offers a great variety of textures and materials that are elevated to a compelling narrative under a dramatic interplay of light and shadows.
At the center of it all, lies a unique and beautiful human experience that arises from what we are. It is a part of our souls and a bridge between the past and future. Through her artwork, the artist thus wishes to transport her audience back in time, opening a floodgate of memories of the forgotten past and yet create a coveted collectible for years to come. She hopes to encourage her audience to begin a journey inward, rekindling their relationship with their own heritage, one that is often ignored and lies beneath the thick dust of modern times but is nonetheless alive.
