Anvita Jain (b. 1981, Agra, India)
Anvita Jain's drawings and installations seek to evoke a sense of anxiety and congestion dealing with contradictions of the everyday and our times, often interjecting the idea of excess with notions of ID, the psychosexual and our animalistic nature. By inventing an imaginary world, it mines the depths of ambiguity that could draw the viewer into a mirror of complexities of their own consciousness. For the artist, it is a way to externalize personal distress with equal doses of comedy, absurdity and pathos.
Anvita Jain's work is in a number of private collections.
Education: MFA 2D Design, Cranbrook Academy of Art, 2012. BA Visual Communication, Birmingham Institute of Art & Design, 2006. BA Fashion and Technology, National Institute of Fashion Technology, 2002.
Anvita Jain was chosen a Winner in Round# 3 of 2012 Showcase Series.
