About Me

Shweta Bhadani Modi

Born on 22 July 1977 Gaya (Bihar)

I am an Artist with Master in Fine Arts (subjectivity and art, painting) from Birmingham City University. U.K. Printmaking from Visva-Bharati, Santiniketan . And South Delhi Polytechnic for Women. Have given my participations on National and International group shows. Got some awards and recognition too.

I enjoy working with colours, letterpress ink, graphite and markers, grease pencils to form the lines, embossed, textural and subtle quality. For aesthetic appearance I like to play with light and colours. The essence behind my art work is to enhance the shine within oneself and weave the fair growth for one another. The technique performance allows me to search the next step……… It has excitement, seriousness, affection, and guidance, connection, all right to say, feel and see. The subjects “body and environment’’, how to be, why to be, again feels me to paint on each plot. Plot-according to me, is the surface to build and structure them gleefully.
