NIMISHA DOONGARWAL  
 

Nimisha is originally from India. She came to the United States in 2007 for Masters in Computer Science. After finishing her Master's, she realized her true passion was art for self-expression.  Currently, she is doing MFA part-time and working as a full-time software engineer. Her art represents immigrant Identity by using cultural and colonial past.


Nimisha's recent mixed media artworks are grouped inventories of fragments: paintings, photographs, fabrics, and digital prints. The work explores the varying relationships between past and popular culture by referencing Indian and British history. Every image tells a unique story by creating visual links to history and reality. The portraits she creates have a new abstract identity, which emphasizes the cultural and traditional overlap, people around the world went through over the centuries. This overlap has made people extremely similar, irrespective of the varied physical appearances.

Through her works, she wants to encourage people to embrace cultural diversity and reduce prejudice against groups based on color, race, religion, appearance and so on. Her goal is to give a voice to social issues immigrants face around the world, though her art and advocate awareness. 

She is not constrained to one medium but her concept dictates the medium she uses for her artwork.

She has multiple collectors around USA and India.
