“Unveiling myself, I express”
Aarrti Zaveri is a conceptual artist who is primarily inspired by Nature; it’s mysteries and complexities. Her ideas and concepts often derive from the study of change in the topography as a result of rapid growth and modernization. She expresses these in the form of Installations, sculptures, paintings, site specific art works and short film. Overtime her country and travel has become an important stimulus in her creative process. Aarrti’s artwork is a representation of what she feels and perceives while exploring different places and situations. Growing up in an industrial town she has lived between machines and nature. This dysfunctional relationship between the two is the route cause of her curiosities. Her journey is more of a visual creation rather than a deep philosophical conclusion.
Winner of Seychelles Biennale 2017, Aarti is the Vice-President of a Delhi based organization ‘TREES’ and is associated with “Global Nomadic Art Project” in collaboration with YATOO; a Korean art organization. She is also an active member of the Artist In Nature International Network (AININ). She recently completed a Senior Fellowship Research Project from Government of India.
