Vyom Mehta

Artist bio:

Vyom's work evokes a diverse world of non-human presences, beings in continuing flux; through play and discovery, and shifts of power – in being, constant. Vyom carries the germs of his early apprenticeship with Lynda Bengalis in America in as much as his more recent work with the potters of Mandla, Madhya Pradesh and Molela, Rajasthan as part of a livelihoods programme administered by the Asian Heritage Foundation. Vyom recently completed a project with Goethe Institut Max Mueller Bhavan, Mumbai. His most recent exhibits include a showcase at Kasturbhai Lalbhai Museum of Art, Ahmedabad. Vyom is a trained sculptor from the Faculty of Fine Arts at M.S.U, Baroda. He has exhibited works at the India Art Fair Delhi, Jaipur Lit Fest, The guild and Nehru Center in Mumbai among others. As a sculptor, materials like metal, terracotta, cement and paper mâché often feature in his practice.
