Art by Seema KohliSeema Kohli is a multidisciplinary contemporary Indian artist who explores themes of femininity, beauty and spirituality. One of the most celebrated artists in India today, her creative expression spans original paintings, murals, installations, ceramics, prints, performances and sculptures. Each medium is a unique articulation of her style, and over time she has brought a synergy of her sensibilities to her art.

Art by Seema Kohli is particularly noted for dreamlike scenes where women celebrate their elegance and sensuality. Each of these paintings is not only richly layered with many stories and motifs rooted in Indian mythology, including the tree of life and Hindu deities, but also illuminated with silver leaf and 24 carat gold details.

“I am a mirror,” Seema Kohli says. “When I paint, what you see is not what I have created, but what you want to see. I am both myth and reality. Pick the one you want, but remember that the mirror distorts, and so the myth might be reality and the reality might be myth.”

Seema Kohli received a Philosophy degree with honors from Miranda House and a diploma in Applied Arts from South Delhi Polytechnic for Women. Her works are currently on display at the Museum of Sacred Art in Brussels, and she has previously exhibited in Venice, Melbourne, London, New York, Dubai, Singapore and several cities in India.

Seema Kohli welcomes requests for commissioned paintings. If you like a painting that has sold, or if you have a particular space in mind, a custom painting can be made to your taste and specifications regarding size, color palette and other details.
