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 artwork has been exhibited at the Indian Consulate in New York and collected by of Prime Minister Modi. Born in India, raised and trained in Belgium, she has a MA in Fine Arts from the Royal Academy of Arts, Antwerp. She is currently living and working in New York. Mehta brings a global perspective and a gentle, 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, Photoshop and glass. Like her mixed-media toolbox, Mehta grapples with a swirling mix of personal issues universally known to many – the juxtaposition of Eastern and Western cultures; the ever-changing power dynamics in gender roles; the forces of old, traditional ways in a progressive, global world; the challenges for women pulled in many directions. Inspired by Gandhi's quote, "be the change you wish to see in the world", she donates all the proceeds of her artwork to charity.
