Lodhi Art Festival || Majili Art Forum || ‘Gracious Heritage’

About

Archana Dubey (born 30 December 1989) is an Indian self taught artist. Specialized in creating different products from waste plastic paired with concrete. Quitting her job gave her wings to turn her passion into profession. One can visualize her love for animals in her artwork. She also like to work with acrylic and black ink.

With other 14 artists she painted large public art mural. Mindful of the pockets of greenery embedded within Lodhi Colony’s landscape and Delhi at large, the artists created an artwork utilizing the trees in front of the wall to create a dream like image to speak about the city's heritage that exists in the form of nature. Drawn delicately onto the walls, Asian elephants emerge as a symbol of endangered species creating a giant yet soft presence within the piece.

For the collective, these elephants are a larger metaphor of our natural heritage that is slowly fading away due to urbanization and the increase in pollution levels. As a way to reminisce the lost richness of nature in our cities, the artists created this dream-like image emerging from the real trees that face the wall. Thus to project the grey area between what is present and what is slowly becoming absent.

Besides involving herself in Workshops, Exhibitions, she also keeps herself busy in providing creative skills blend with sustainability.

Her vision is based on an idea that gives a message to save environment and protect animals. 

She's available for both animal & art projects, and open for collaboration with like-minded artists, designers, cultural institutions, galleries, labels and publishers. You can get in touch over email or any other social platform.


She is based in New Delhi, India
