Revati Gangal (born 1981) grew up in Mumbai and earned her Masters in Fine Arts (specialising in portraiture) from the prestigious Sir J.J. School of Art. She currently lives in Pune after spending a few years in Dubai, Bengaluru and Mumbai.
Besides India, her paintings have been displayed at art galleries across the world’s major cities including Paris, London, Brussels, Dubai, Muscat, Doha and Manama.
"My paintings are a reflection of the various phases of my life from being a teenager to adult, from marriage to motherhood, and getting back to being a professional. My subjects deal with the impact of frequent uprootment and unsettlement, challenges of exclusion and rejection, disappointments and disagreements with respect to rediscovering the self. It’s not always the negatives but also the positive experiences of love, affection, compassion, belonging and learning contribute to the expression", says Revati.
