Contemporary Artist Rithika Merchant will join us from her Barcelona home to share with us her journey as an artist in the worlds of both art and fashion.
Rithika deals with creating mosaics of myths that question received histories that are available to us throughout culture. Her works are an exploration of epics and myths across geography.
Rithika received her Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from Parsons the New School for Design, New York (2008). She has exhibited extensively in India, France, Spain, Germany and the United States.
She has also collaborated with Chloé fashion house on multiple collections for which she was awarded the Vogue India Young Achiever of the Year Award at its Women of the Year Awards 2018, as well as being named one of Vogue Magazine’s Vogue World 100 Creative Voices. In 2021 Merchant was shortlisted for the Sovereign Asian Art Prize for her painting Saudade.
