BIOGRAPHY


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. In 2019, she was the subject of a major solo exhibition at the Museum of Sacred Art in Brussels. Seema has previously exhibited in Venice, Melbourne, London, New York, Dubai, Singapore and several cities in India. Her work is also featured in the collections of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Kochi Museum of Arts, National Gallery Of Modern Art in Bangalore and Rubin Museum of Art in New York.

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. You are welcome to buy her paintings online or view them at our gallery in Palo Alto (San Francisco Bay Area). All artworks are hand signed by the artist and include a certificate of authenticity.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


What is a serigraph?

Serigraphs are a type of high quality, limited edition screen print made on high quality paper in collaboration with the artist. A different ‘screen’ or stencil is created for each color, and then ink is pushed through the corresponding stencil onto the paper. This printing process is repeated multiple times, using a separate stencil for each color. A single serigraphic print can have as many as 25 colors or more. Each print is then numbered and signed by the artist.

Are the artworks signed?

Yes, all paintings and prints are hand signed by the artist and come with a certificate of authenticity.

Is shipping available worldwide?

Yes, we offer both domestic and international shipping, and all fees are on actuals. We frequently ship throughout the US as well as to Europe, Africa and Asia.

How are the artworks shipped?

All works including paintings, prints and sculptures are professionally packed. Smaller paintings can be shipped flat, and larger paintings can be unstretched and rolled in a tube. Prints are shipped rolled in a tube. Each shipment is covered by transit insurance.

Are exchanges accepted?

Yes, we do offer exchanges for paintings purchased by remote clients who are based in the United States. Paintings must be returned in the same perfect condition in order to be eligible for exchange. Please refer to our FAQ page for more details on our exchange policy.

Are the artworks framed?

No, neither the paintings nor serigraphs are sold framed. While it is not necessary to frame a canvas, it can be a stylistic choice and help integrate the painting with the existing decor. Meanwhile, works on paper must always be framed to properly protect them from warping and discoloration. You can read more advice about framing on our blog.
