"My art explores the dynamic between imagination and what is visible. These portraits challenge viewers to contemplate how gender and racial biases shape our society. Through mixed media, I create visually striking identities that encourage reflection on the ways biases impact individuals. These are imaginary people shaped by their stories, emphasizing the idea that we are unique individuals beyond appearances. I use diverse media to challenge conventional notions of identity by celebrating diversity and cultural heritage. I incorporate elements of my own cultural heritage into the work, seeking to reclaim and celebrate the rich and vibrant traditions and histories of colonized people”.


As an artist, Nimisha aims to inspire viewers to work towards dismantling systems of inequality. Her art serves as a platform for change, amplifying marginalized voices and experiences. Ultimately, celebrating the resilience and triumphs of women and marginalized communities. Seeing people from the heart, not just the eyes, allowing us to appreciate their stories and experiences.


 Nimisha's works have been featured in publications and magazines such as Forbes, Maake magazine, Artmarket magazine and has exhibited in museums and galleries including the De Young Museum, UCSF Women's Hospital, Studio Shop Gallery, Gallery Route One, San Francisco International Airport, San Mateo City Hall, San Mateo Library, Oakland Asian Cultural Center, Museum of Northern California and Brown University.
