Sangeeta Bhagawati


Sangeeta Bhagawati is a London based printmaker from India. She makes linoprints with chinecollé, mono prints and etchings. She is inspired by her experience of growing up as a woman in a South Asian culture. The subjects of her prints are mostly women and she tries to channel the feelings of rebellion, strength and communion through her art on woman and body.

Sangeeta’s prints revolve around images of body. They evoke the relation of body with pleasure, loss, power as well as growth. These images, of bodies together as well as in isolation, hinges on the narrative potential of Sangeeta’s work – each print dwells on the possibility of multiple interpretation by the viewer. The aim is to encourage the viewers to feel the myriad emotions provoked by these carvings and mark makings on body.
