Nejal Mehta

b. 1992, India. Lives and works in Pune, India

Nejal Mehta recently graduated in 2020 from Barcelona Academy of Art with a degree in Classical Drawing and Painting. Nejal Mehta has exhibited in multiple group exhibitions in Spain. The spaces and environment that Nejal Mehta has been confined to have played a significant role in the creation of works. The paintings are a direct response to the artist’s surroundings, energies, frustration and motivations. Nejal explores the stillness and subtle elements of time slowing down, such as how light moves during the day, the decaying of leaves and sprouting of new buds; the way that things seem to take a new shape when our gaze shifts.
