Jayshree shah is a Mumbai based visual artist. After spending many years in a leading advertising agency as an art director, her passion for fine arts led her to pursue her graduation in fine arts at Rachna Sansad College. While studying she realized, art is all about self- discovery and nothing else but food of the soul. As a self-observer she started creating utopian subjects within binary perspectives. As the protagonist, she manifests various roles in search of “who am I.”
Her work is a self-expression of surrealistic vocabulary and builds into polar narrations, in the hope to intrigue the viewer to bring in his/her own narrative formations. Her ‘figurative evocative’ art has resulted in the wonderfully harmonious conflicts. The execution emerges from paradoxical expression like, placing the mannequin against mysterious infinite background to the mythological symbolic elements. Each contributing towards a distinct identity, yet synthesizing towards a new story.
