ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Shohini is a Denver (Colorado), USA based sculptor originally from India. She graduated from the renowned Sir J.J. School of Art, in Mumbai, India in 1993, where she continued as a Lecturer at her Alma Marta while pursuing her art. Since moving to the United States in 1998, She she has developed her style from years of experience of creating across two continents, balancing the Asian approach to artistic aesthetics and the Western world of art called Humanism, which—at its most basic—places renewed values on intrinsic human anatomic knowledge, and the experience of this world. Sculpting and drawing from her multiple environments has nurtured and developed a unique global sentiment of humanity which is portrayed in her art with an eclectic approach to her body of work, form and sculpture. Her Art work is often described as being figurative, a stylistic representation of everyday fun, moving and powerful.
I love creating in 3-Dimension and believe in bringing art outside the white walls of a gallery and into public spaces, creating a sense of community pride.
My sculptures can be best described as figurative, stylistic representation of moments in life, a zeitgeist of my surroundings. I see the human body as a metaphor for the language of the soul, the illustration of our uniqueness as a human race, our quest to build families, communities and societies that define our existence. Time and time again History proves that public art has been a very effective tool towards city development and community pride, increasing the intrinsic value of its surroundings, spiritually and physically.
