Artist Sushma Shrivastava

Joined Craft Tatva: July 2021

Sushma was awarded a doctorate in the year 1996, for her 8 years of research on the ethnic textiles of the Malwa region in central India. She incorporated these printing techniques in her contemporary works for a solo painting show in 2002 at the Jehangir Art Gallery in Mumbai. For Sushma, art transcends the boundaries of a medium and she firmly believes in not playing to the gallery but letting the process of imagination drive her incredible work. Being a lecturer of fine arts, when she is not painting, she immerses herself in her other passion of teaching fine arts and textile design. She is also a member of jury for many competitions and also sits on the committee for art education by NCERT. Sushma lives in Bhopal ( India), a city steeped in art and culture. She is also dedicated to the cause of organ donation. Being a donor herself, she feels being able to give a lease of life to someone is the best thing to have happened to her.
