Labdhi Shah is a self-taught artist from Ahmedabad, India. She received her B.A. in Economics & Psychology from Fergusson College, Pune, India, and her M.A. in Psychology from Indira Gandhi National Open University. She has also completed the year-long Arts-Based Therapy certificate course at BAPU Trust, Pune. She specializes in finger-painted art works created from intuition without any reference or pre-sketch, distilling the purest expression of her emotion into her art. Art seeks to convey the truth of the human experience, in all its complexity. Her effort as an artist is to share the faith she has in the capacity of love, and to accept the uniqueness of every human being irrespective of race, color, gender, and culture. She works with a variety of media including watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, and ink, and enjoys the uniqueness of each medium.
Her work has been featured in art publications around the world, including Curious Publishing, Detester Magazine, Porridge Magazine, Postscript Magazine, Copper Magazine, The Lumiere Review, Visio Mag, and Up the Staircase Quarterly. Her work was recently on view at the juried exhibition: “Hope – Revolution” at the Stay Home Gallery in Paris, TN, USA, and at the virtual exhibitions, “Small Works”, and “Collective Impact” hosted by Ikouii in Atlanta, GA, and at virtual exhibitions hosted by Las Laguna Gallery (A Light in the darkness), and Student Art Spaces (Art in Adversity). Her recent participatory art installation on the theme of love, titled ‘Rainbow of emotions’ — ‘લાગણીઓ ‘ું મેઘધ’ુષ’, was featured at the Abhivyakti art festival, 2020.
