About Anoushka Mirchandani: Anoushka Mirchandani is a female artist living in San Francisco. Born and raised in Pune, India, Anoushka moved to the United States when she was 18 years old. Her artworks are informed both by her cultural upbringing in India, and her personal discoveries and growth in the United States.
Anoushka works across multiple media to create figurative artworks that embody the emotions of what it feels like to be a woman in society today. Her artworks are inspired by her patchwork identity; that of being Indian, being an immigrant, being an other, being an American, being a woman, and being an artist.
In 2017 and 2018, Anoushka was selected as a showcase visual artist for Kearny Street Workshop, the oldest Asian Pacific American multidisciplinary arts organization in the US. She was also selected to show her work at CA State Senator, Scott Wiener’s public offices, celebrating cultural diversity on the West Coast. She has shown her work in various galleries in San Francisco, and is in private collections across the U.S and India.
Anoushka’s debut solo show in San Francisco at Glass Rice opened on August 29th and is on view until September 26th.
