About The Artist
Born in 1960 Delhi. Seema Kohli studied philosophy followed by a Diploma in Applied Arts. She trained in Lithographs working with Devraj Dakoji and subsequently learnt painting from Rameshwar Broota at Triveni replique montre suisse and had a brief residency at Bharat Bhavan, Bhopal. Conceptually her art explores and plays around themes such as procreation and feminine concerns as well as recycling and natural phenomena. Her colourful swarming work in layers of dense drawing and painting covers the whole surface in a strange blend of the floating figures mainly women often appearing in semi-anthropomorphic forms accompanied by birds, animals, flowers, fish, sun, moon, meandering rivers and other forms, encompassing the origins and proliferation of life and the universe. Seema Kohli has held several solo and group shows of her work in various Indian cities and around the world as well as a solo in London. She lives in Delhi and works from her studio at home.
