About The Artist
With a gold medal in fine arts from Delhi College of Arts and with a master’s degree in Computer Animation from Sheridan College from Canada, Charuvi Agrawal is a practicing visual artist specializing in large scale interactive installations alongside making animation content through her own firm Charuvi Design Labs. Her work is an amalgamation of technology and art and typically creates a simulacrum which titillates all the senses. She did her first major exhibition in 2006 at the Visual Arts Gallery at the India Habitat Center with all works being sold out. Her installations adorn spaces in collector’s homes, museums, corporate offices and more. She is highly selective in her concepts and so works on few but large pieces, most of which are sold before she finishes them.
Recognized as one of the most artistic personalities on NDTV’s ‘The Creative Indians’, Charuvi loves to make the world her playground of experimentation. She is a double Limca Book of Records holder for a 25 feet sculpture made of 26,000 bells and for a series of miniature caricatures of contemporary politics figures and was facilitated in 2007 at the Incredible India 60 festival in New York by Coca-cola as one of the emerging 10 who would transform the global artistic landscape.
As an filmmaker and animator, her films have screened at over 50 film festivals including a few Oscar qualifying ones across the world that pulled her onto the International radar. She is currently working simultaneously on a few large installations, a couple of Virtual Reality films and mixed media art for upcoming exhibitions.
