Nimisha Doongarwal - Contempurary Artist 

Identity

Nimisha Doongarwal is a mixed media artist and an engineer by day. Her conceptually layered pieces combine paint, photography, fabric and digital prints which explore varying relationships between past and popular culture, by referencing social issues such as racism, immigration and gender inequality. Each image tells a unique story, creating visual links between current and historical events in time. Through her work, her goal is to give a voice to social issues faced by women and people of color; to encourage viewers to embrace cultural diversity and step up for equality for all. Nimisha has been featured in publications such as Forbes and has exhibited in museums and galleries including the De Young Museum in San Francisco.
