Saloni Shah is a multi-disciplinary artist who uses the versatility of patterns as a custom language to craft an intricate narration.
Born in Mumbai, India, Shah spent her early childhood in the UK before traveling to the US for further studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Her artwork serves as a reflection of this journey, seeking to introduce accounts from one place to another while simultaneously excavating their convoluted historical relations. A significant facet of her work is discerning the role of the viewer and herself in these narratives via the act of layering in the form of interactive elements. Through addressing the crippling stereotypes and dismissed histories, Shah, owing to detailed research and experimentation, aspires to depict her culture in a respectful manner that expresses contemporary perspectives which contrast from the farfetched labels.
