Meera Sethi is an Indian-born, Toronto-raised artist whose multi-disciplinary practice explores the intersection of material culture and migration, and the construction of self. Her art references Indian dress iconography, contemporary fashion and popular culture.
In the colourful journeys that traverse her canvas, Meera’s graphic design background informs the two-dimensional elements that are a defining feature of her aesthetic. Minute detail is juxtaposed with unexpected scale; saturated colour combines with geometric abstraction.
Meera’s work has been featured in VOGUE India, CNNgo, MTV Desi and numerous other publications. She has exhibited her work internationally, and regularly travels to India to expand her research and practice.
Meera’s mural will appear on the south wall of 522 Church Street in August of 2013.
