Meghna Patpatia is an independent artist who has studied painting from J. J. School of Art, Mumbai. Her display was up for viewing at the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival 2019 at Jehangir Art Gallery where an exhibition titled ‘Here Among the Disappearing’ was conducted.
The highlight of her work was the prominent surrealism; a dream of a perfect, ideal and united world with all species sharing space with each other and living in harmony. Surrealism is a 20th-century avant-garde movement that originated to express the unconscious. It is an experimental, aesthetic and unorthodox movement in art, culture and society. “The surrealism evident across all paintings is the core theme wherein there is a wish for a fertile land in the rapid rise of deforestation and global warming”, she expressed.
Her style in art is ink-based drawing on paper, which is then pasted on textile. She uses a slant orientation to draw perfectly fertile harmonized habitat for her subjects. Having also studied art restoration at the Prince of Wales Museum, she works with Architects & Art galleries on commissioned Artworks.
