Biography

Shailee Mehta (b.1998, India) is a contemporary visual artist whose practice stems from an ongoing dialogue between the personal and the political through an extrapolation of memory and nostalgia into a larger context of history, mythology and contemporary society. Her work investigates conversations revolving familiarity, otherness, alienation, intimacy and awkwardness through mediums like painting, drawing and printmaking. She finds inspiration in fiction that spreads across cultures in various versions including superstitions, children’s stories and religious mythology, particularly that of India, where she was born and raised. Shailee lives and works in London, UK.
