Shreya Mehta is an award-winning fine artist who explores, in her vibrant and varied works, the social issues of identity, gender, power and spirituality. Her art has been exhibited across the globe, from the Indian Consulate in New York to the private collection of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In fact, Mehta secured her place at the Royal Academy of Art in Belgium as the first woman of Indian origin, graduating with none other than the prestigious V.R.I.K.A Award. Born in India, raised and trained in Belgium, and now living and working in New York, Mehta brings a global perspective and a positive touch to all her endeavors. She creates both representational and abstract works thus defying categorization through constant, energetic change and an inquisitive nature.
Classically trained and digitally competent, Mehta is ever folding new skills into her command of more tested mediums. Mehta works in charcoal, paint, wax, ink, glass and Photoshop, but is only defined by her openness, curiosity and creativity. Like her mixed-media toolbox, Mehta grapples with a swirling mix of personal issues universally known to many as the juxtaposition of Eastern and Western cultures through the forces of old, traditional ways in a progressive, global world. A practicing Jain, Mehta infuses a unique spirituality into her work, exploring her inner life and her external presence in her many roles.
