Born on March 12, 1998.
Akshata is a creative personality exploring Visual Art, independent empirical research in human visual perception and psychology, illustration and writing, who lives and works in Mumbai, India. She completed her BFA in Painting with excellence from Sir J. J. School of Art, Mumbai.
She uses Art to enrich her sense of reality and the world around her. Since a young age, she has been intrigued by people’s personalities, behaviour and how they perceive things around them. She loves painting portraits.
Throughout her explorations, her work has now evolved into more of an autobiographical ‘journal’ consisting of her take on the possibilities of human perception through varied media. She also looks forward to sufficing her visual explorations with sound/music and inquiring on audio-visual perceptions through the same, in the latent future.
She keeps exploring different media from recycled paper pulp, fiber, hand embroidery, recycled fabric, and paper/fabric collage, to the digital renditions of her explorations.
Some of her undergraduate works were exhibited in a group show ‘Habitat’ curated by Sonal Motla, at Hirji Jehangir Gallery, Jehangir Art Gallery in Kala Ghoda Art Festival, 2020 in Mumbai.
Also, one of her initial works was featured in an online activity feature, ‘Mirror Image’ by the Jehangir Nicholson Art Foundation, Mumbai for 'Akbar Padamsee: A Tribute' exhibition, on 18 May 2020 on the account of International Museum Day on their website.
Recently, she has been featured with her digital works under the pseudonym 'Kshatakshataksh' on a digital platform Homeostasis Lab, among many other artists around the world.
