Bharti Prajapati, born in 1962, studied Textile Design at the Sophia Polytechnic, Mumbai, and also at the National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad.
The people of Kutch, with their ethnic style and strong cultural roots have had a deep impact on Prajapati. The people and their vibrant lifestyle; the contrasts of the dry arid landscape with the vivid hues of the textiles inspired Prajapati to explore a wider canvas for her expressions. Her desire to translate her experience drew her towards painting.
Her exhibit with us is titled Nayika - Women in Indian Art, an oil on canvas made in 2021. It is a tribute to Amrita Sher Gil.
