Avni has completed her Masters in Printmaking from M.S.U, Faculty of Fine Arts (2016), and BFA from College of Art Delhi.
Avni’s artistic practice takes inspiration from subconscious moments and beliefs prevalent in Indian culture, rituals, habits, behaviours, and memories
Avni Bansal (b.1992) is an artist living between Delhi and Chandigarh. Her artistic practice takes inspiration from subconscious moments and beliefs prevalent in Indian culture, rituals, habits, behaviours, and memories. Her work attempts to deconstruct decorative and ornamental elements popularly witnessed in Indian homes and street cultures. Bansal’s works speak about the creation and interpretation of forms and the subsequent interpretation by viewers based on their subjective world-view and knowledge. The titles of her artworks are apt pointers to the image she wishes to engage and reconfigure.
Avni has exhibited her works in several shows such as the International Biennale of Small Graphics, Inter-Art Foundation, Romania, 2016; Stree Drishti - Contemporary Women Printmakers of India at Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Fine Art and Design, Poland, and Regional Museum Guadalajara, Mexico, 2019; 8th Sofia Print Triennale, Bulgaria 2020; IPCNY New York New Prints Show, 2020. She also received the National Award, 56th National Exhibition of Art, Lalit Kala Akademi in 2015. She has worked as a textile designer and Program Coordinator for Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi.
