At first glance Pragati’s works are an eye-catching blend of vibrant colors, intricate motifs, flora and fauna and human figurines. On a closer look they emerge to be thought-provoking narratives with deeper meanings and influences from cultures around the world. Pragati was born in India in 1980 and has traveled all over the world with her family. This piqued her interest and has become a life-long journey to draw inspiration from the myriad cultures and traditions. She was tagged as exceptionally creative since childhood, and went on to get a Bachelors Degree in Architecture and a Masters Degree in Product Design, striking the right balance between raw talent and rigorous formal training.She is a globetrotter and a storyteller by nature. After finishing her formal education she lived in Europe and further explored the synergy between Art, Design & Architecture - so similar and yet so different! She is an artist by passion and a methodical innovator by education and she leverages this special array of skills, knowledge and passion in her exotic works - transparent layers of paint, coming alive with labyrinthine details, within the hem of aesthetics, creating visually appealing compositions. She divides her time between India and US to get the best of both worlds, and in her studio she blends various forms of fine arts, performing arts & design to create multi-sensory experiences that touch the viewer in positive and spiritual ways.Read More View Artist Profile
