Prachi Gothi's Education and Influences
Born and raised in Mumbai, Prachi completed her MA Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art & Design, London, 2010. Drawing inspiration from the mundane and her personal life experiences, Prachi taps into the complexities of fleeting human emotions. She seeks to freeze the ephemeral on canvas, laying bare deep feelings.
The artist primarily works with acrylic. Her colourful palette juxtaposes bright colours with hints of sombre tones, simultaneously highlighting a sense of disconnection and intimacy. Through painting forms in a state of flux, Prachi attempts to make the viewer enter into and navigate a unique space on the cusp of change.

Her artwork is in collections across India, the UK, the USA, Europe and Australia. She has also participated in auctions, such as Arts for India Auction, Kensington Palace, London, 2010.
