Saudamini Mishra

Artist Saudamini Mishra draws upon everyday things to create art.

Unlike abstract art, New Delhi-based artist Saudamini Mishra’s work is easy to connect with. Instead of grappling with themes that may seem unattached, Saudamini holds on to the tangible, thus creating a rapport with her art and the world that inhabits it. Her inspirations are as varied as the current socio-cultural scenario to human emotions and her work, a mix of intense colourful influences. She believes, “the magic hides under the veneer of what we know as mundane” and therefore, her paintings capture everyday visuals of universal themes of time and money. A recurrent theme is money — shown as either a basic necessity like food and water or as a luxury. But this self-taught artist wasn’t born with creative ambitions. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in history from Delhi University in 2008, she aspired to be a lecturer. However, she picked up a brush on a whim and found her calling. Even though she’s just kick-started her career, she has showcased her work in a group exhibition at the Alliance Francaise gallery in New Delhi (called Romanticists) with a continuation of the same at Gallery One, Gurgaon, among others.
