Work Done

Shan Re is one of the most versatile artists in India having explored a wide array of subjects and genres such as abstract expressionism, minimalism, figuration and geometric abstraction in several group and solo exhibitions in Bangalore, New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco since the year 2000.

Shan’s strength lies in her ability to invoke human sentiment with minimal detailing, flowing colors and simple forms. In her figurative work, she often captures her subjects in a moment of contemplation, self-discovery or self-healing.

Her abstract works are exuberant and compelling - the boldness and harmony of lines and colors imply a sense of joie de vivre, a celebration of life.

Her Free Association Drawings triumphantly capture Shan’s spirit and essence. Through the process of Free Association Shan is able to tap into the energy within her soul to create these simple yet powerful drawings that often invoke within the viewer those elusive feelings of rapture, hope and even tranquility.

Shan Re's work is in important private and corporate collections in India, United States and Europe. She currently lives and works in Bangalore. She is always possessed by the idea of creativity and reinvents herself constantly.


Exhibited in Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, New York, London, Amsterdam, Berlin
