'Blow Horn' Paintings, Multimedia Installations & Video by Puja Bahri.
Her repertoire includes paintings, digital and video art, and sculpture; in a semi realistic style and a mix of abstraction and figuration. Working in series and a mix and match of media, her art adorns a colourful look.
Innovating in spirit, Puja now works in new materials and different genres. She is currently working in a photo-realistic style and experiments with sculpture, digital and video art. A marked change is noticeable in her recourse.
There is an interesting mix of the urban and rural milieu in her art that represents a rich tapestry of images and ideas inspired by her encounters during exploratory photographic voyages. Contemporary Indian city-scape, where the old and the new, the poor and the rich co-exist is featured in her surrealist imagery overlaid with graphic markings. The thrust of her creativity has clearly traversed from a more painterly stance to a layered conceptual and digital media genre in this series, while the imagery rotates around her spontaneous response to the changing Indian metro-scapes and the daily struggles of its inhabitants.
Recipient of the Gold medal as First Prize at the VIII Biennale Internazionale Dell'Arte Contemporanea Di Firenze/ Florence Italy in 2011, for her stop motion video work titled MAAYAA in the video category, Puja Bahri’s work has also been featured at the Delhi International Arts Festival 2011 and 4th India Art fair 2012, amongst others.
