About the Artist
Shilpa Nikam, born in 1970 has a BFA and MFA from Sir JJ School of Art, Mumbai, and has had several solos and group shows to her credit. A migrant from Jafrabad, Gujarat following a natural calamity which she and her family were unable to overcome, depicts an emotional rendition in her works sensitizing the trial and tribulations of the lives of people suffering a similar fate. Balancing abstract and figurative forms of narration, her steely grit and determination to tide over all odds inspire and breathes life into her works. As mediums, she has dabbled in canvas, paper, terracotta, and wood, creating magic with techniques such as pigment layering, cuts, dabs, and tears which are at times deliberate and at times unplanned.
