Nitasha Jaini, born in 1963 Punjab, is an artist practicing in Delhi. Jaini’s paintings have a feminist narrative. Her central artistic concern is to change society’s mind-sets on the issue to gender inequality. Her art touches on social, as well as spiritual aspects of feminist discourse. She believes that women are becoming increasingly independent and financially secure. However, the masses do not seem to keep up with the changing times. She firmly believes that it is time for man to adjust and accommodate both at home and in the office.

Chandigarh based art critic Vandana Shukla describes Jaini’s art as “evolving and changing with time. After she returned from her brief sojourn in New Zealand in 2001, the overt physicality of her male figurations began to disappear, giving way to hordes of faceless and identical, prototype urban male figures. These prototype figures, produced as standard-size mechanical wares, became her artistic signatures to convey the conventional rat race and aspirations of the modern urban men. ”

I do paintings and installations that are characterized by traditional materials like acrylic on canvas and paper, stainless steel etc. All my work is based entirely on my life experiences, and there is a personal story behind each one of it. I try and explore the urban male through my work. It is essentially what 21st century Indian women wants to talk about, when she is talking about her counterpart, the male. Through my paintings, I try to communicate the fact that it's time, that Indian urban women are taken seriously and we listen to what they have to say!
