Sharmila Samant

Samant's visually exciting work follows the major trends that define the globally evolving world from an Indian perspective, taking into account the formidable developments of the country over the last few decades. The history of textiles features heavily in her work, as she sees it as an indicator of global economical trends.

Samant has exhibited her work internationally, including at the Sydney Biennial, and has had recent solo exhibitions in Mumbai and Geneva.
