About Me
Priyanka comes from Kolkata, India, also called the 'City of Joy' for its people and the passion with which they lead their lives. This passion has undoubtedly found its way into her own conception and expression of the colors of life through my art. A graduate of San Francisco Art Institute, Priyanka spends her time between Kolkata and California. She has been exhibiting her works in San Francisco, Silicon Valley and India since 2004. Some of her notable exhibits have been her solo exposition at the Academy of Fine Arts and Chitrakoot art gallery in Kolkata and shows at Stanford university, Togonon Gallery, Market Street Gallery and the Triton Museum in California. She has also been invited to participate in the Florence Biennale ‘09. She has received wide acclaim for her paintings and received reviews in the San Francisco Chronicle, Santa Clara weekly and Mountain View voice. Her works are mainly abstracts in acrylic, with a very rich use of color to express concepts rather than the use of form. Through her works, Priyanka attempts to bridge the cultural gaps between the eastern and western worlds that she inhabits and explore feminism and spirituality in the context of Indian society. Priyanka currently paints out of her studio in Mountain View, California.
