Teja Gavankar’s graphic and sculptural work addresses the complexities of public space and architecture. By appropriating pre-existing models, she detracts and subtly transforms her objects, all the while pushing against the limits of their materiality. Currently, the artist’s drawings seek to understand space through the study of shapes that convey the existing traces of the past and the memory of place.
Teja Gavankar received a Master’s in Visual Arts in Painting from the School of Fine Arts in Baroda, India. She also holds a certificate in Indian Aesthetics from Kalina University in Mumbai. Gavankar lives and works in Mumbai.
