Mamta Malhotra

Showcase Part-1 (Part-2 coming soon)

About the Artist: Mamta Malhotra spent her growing years in Kashmir, Poona, Gangtok and Bhutan, and currently lives in Varanasi. An architect by profession, she trained at the Triveni Kala Sangam in Delhi, under eminent artists like Rameshwar Broota, Shobha Broota and Pradip Saxena. She has designed residences, art galleries, art residencies, boutiques, and numerous interior and landscape design projects. She draws her inspiration from the city of Varanasi. Mamta received an honours certificate from the Royal Drawing Society in London. Her artwork is regularly featured in prominent publications in India and the USA. She has exhibited at the Visual Arts Gallery, a solo show at the Open Palm Court Gallery at the Habitat Centre, at the Triveni Kala Sangam annual exhibition, at the Art Laureate gallery, New Delhi, the Trump Tower, New Rochelle, USA, and other prestigious venues, including one due at the Jehangir Art Gallery in Mumbai soon.

Artist’s Statement: Kashi, the city of Lord Shankar, is timeless. The only ancient living city, Kashi or Varanasi or Benaras is said to have existed since the beginning of time, on the banks of holy river Ganga. It embodies Lord Shiv, the creation and destruction, salvation, myths and history, life and the afterlife – all addressed and solved in this city. Varanasi is a beacon of hope in these troubled times, as a testimonial to human resilience and faith. This order in the chaos is my inspiration. The urban landscape grew upon a thousands of years old architecture and technology, and yet seems beautifully relevant to today’s times. Mother, Ganga ‘Ma’ is central to everyone’s daily existence, even today. We seem to be slowly losing this symbiotic connection of simplicity, beauty and balance. Rooted to its traditions, its faith and signature sangfroid, we ponder how best to maintain our essence while embracing the future even as the city moves toward urbanization.

    The architecture in Mamta’s paintings is very evident. She had portrayed the different light, color and aura of the different times of the day – sundown, twilight, afternoon etc. with so much feeling.

    I absolutely love Mamta Malhotra’s paintings because they feature some of the oldest locations in the world in such a contemporary and striking way. The colours pop with a vivacity, one can’t help but be drawn to them. And each is different from the rest, so I’m always interested in having a look at all!
