Durgesh Srivastava is a Fine Artist working from Manchester. Her artistic career has flourished in later life, following her BA (Hons) in Visual Arts and Culture from the University of Salford in 1995.
She has exhibited group/solo shows widely in Greater Manchester, Lodnon, North West England and India. Durgesh has received various grants and Commissions including funding from the Arts Council England, North West and the Museum & Art Gallery, Blackburn.
Durgesh’s prolific output of installation, graphic prints, etchings and large format paintings explores metaphysical notions of time, memory and the Universal, through the lens of her own experiences of love/happiness, loss/suffering, immigration and gaging. Her powerful and highly personal art works act as an inspiration and challenge to herself and her audience.
“The idea of a 70 plus Indian woman making and exhibiting art seriously does not fit the usual stereotypes that most spetuagenarian women have to deal with”.
