About the Artist
Shiv Shankar completed his BVA (Painting with a minor in Graphics) from the Faculty of Fine Arts, MSU, Baroda (2022). His work is about reaffirming his social identity in his locale with regard to social imposition, dominance, defamation, and the dream of an egalitarian society. The concepts of ‘nostalgia’ and ‘caste’ play a significant role in his practice, which explores his own community’s history of being vocal about issues in the hierarchical caste system. Shiv has exhibited in a number of group shows including Pristine, Priyasri Art Gallery at the Kamalnayan Bajaj Art Gallery, Mumbai (2022); Degree Show at the Faculty of Fine Arts, MSU, Baroda (2022); and Another Brick In The Wall – Preview Group Show, Fine Arts Gallery, Baroda (2022).
