Seema  can well be explained as a self-trained artist , a visual story teller whose exhaustive practice spans over three long decades embracing a variety of mediums including paintings, sculpture, video installation and performance art. She is a pro in the differentiated form of art called “Performance Art” where artistic expressions are depicted through the visuals of actual physical movements.

It is through her visual language of art that she tries to grasp the metaphysical truth of existence and the cosmic energy that is responsible for all creation. Her work is primarily a celebration of the female form and energy – the source of the twin forces of creation and destruction. Shakti, the divine cosmic energy manifested through female embodiment has been extensively explored and engaged with through Seema Kohli’s works.

Her works can be seen as public art at places like  Delhi Airport, Mumbai International / Domestic Airport, Manipal University, Hotel Leela Palace Delhi and many other prominent places. She has had 20 solo shows and has been a part of numerous national and international shows across famous art galleries in India, Venice, Hong Kong , Spain , China , Christies ( London) , Sotheby’s ( NY) etc . She received further acclaim for her creativity at the Florence Biennale , 2009 where she received a Gold Award for her video “Swayamsiddha – Myth, mind and Movement.” A recipient of Young FICCI Ladies Organization Women Achiever’s Award in 2010 and the Lalit Kala National Award for Women in 2008,  Seema lives and works in New Delhi, India.

An opportunity for connoisseurs to interact with Ms. Seema Kohli will present itself during her first ever talk show at Emami Chisel Art. Seema will be available in the gallery on 29th of March, 2016 from 4 PM onwards.
