Megha Joshi, born 1973
Trained as a sculptor from the prestigious Faculty of Fine Arts, MS University Baroda, India, Joshi worked as a set designer and art director for film and television for 10 years when she quit at the peak of her career to return to her fine art practice in 2008.
Joshi’s uniqueness lies in her ability to express herself on various subjects, in a vast variety of media. She has worked with conventional materials such steel, fabric, bronze, rubber and most interestingly, everyday objects and materials used in Hindu ritualism. Drawings remain constant in her practice. Her works are strong yet experimental, as she does not believe in forced homogeneity in artworks.
She has been actively participating in shows in India and abroad and has been invited to art residencies in Budapest, Scotland, Japan and Iceland. Her work has been shown at the India Art Fair almost every year. Her most recent solo ‘I:Object’ was held in New Delhi. Her works are in the collection of galleries, institutions and collectors in India and abroad.She is based in Delhi NCR.
