Shambhavi (born 1966) is a painter, printmaker, and installation artist currently based in New Delhi, India. Her artistic practice includes a wide variety of processes and media. Her work is largely non-figurative and focuses on the relationship between man and nature, as well as the social and metaphysical condition of the agricultural worker.
Shambhavi’s work is grounded in her upbringing in Bihar, which she said “nurtured and evolved her creative language.” But her extensive travels abroad – she has taken part in several art projects in the Netherlands, South Africa, Singapore – helped to sharpen her interest in the relationship between nature and man. Shambhavi works in new media and video alongside the more traditional mediums of painting, printmaking and sculpture.
Her work has been exhibited in solo shows as well as selected group shows in India, Singapore, Austria (Vienna & Salzburg), South Africa (Durban & Cape Town), Australia (Melbourne & Brisbane), New York, and the Netherlands. Her work was recently added to the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Her work was also shown at the 2018 Kochi-Muziris Biennale.
