Puja Kshatriya is a merit scholar and a graduate from Delhi College of Art. She engages with the prismatic play of textures, surfaces, fragments and shapes. Her work is characterised by attention to detail combined with the spontaneous intermeshing of colours and textures.

Her mixed media works weave unspoken narratives about lives of people through their visage. She has had four solo shows of which “Pause and Play” by Artspeaks India at Shridharani Gallery, Triveni Kala Sangam, “Construct Deconstruct”, at Museum Art Gallery, Mumbai and a solo at Jehangir Art Gallery are important.
