Bhavna Mehta, a wheelchair user, tells stories through art
March 26, 2018
Bhavna Mehta is an artist who uses various visual mediums to express herself.
Mehta was born in Ahmednagar in Maharashtra. She contracted polio at the age of seven years and has been a wheelchair user since.
When she was 22 years old, Bhavna moved to the United States. She has worked as a software engineer for top companies like Nokia and Motorola. Bhavna started taking art classes and trying out different mediums.
Bhavna soon realized that she liked paper cutting and has been using it to tell stories.
Her artwork is displayed in galleries and exhibitions. One of her exhibitions will soon be held at the prestigious Mesa College Art Gallery.
Bhavna is presently working on a show on Indians in America. The theme is Beyond Bollywood: Indian Americans Shape the Nation. It explores the contributions of people of Indian origin in the U.S.
Although she is no longer based in India, Bhavna's work is deeply rooted in Indian heritage.
