About the artist:
Bahaar Dhawan Rohatgi’s artistic practice is as multifaceted as her life. She practiced law in the most coveted law-firm of India before she chose to pursue her passion for art full time. She is a recipient of eight diplomas in the legal field and has authored over 20 legal articles during her practicing years.
Her work is a brilliant combination of law and freedom, mirroring her life, projecting knowledge and thought in every piece she creates. Her art functions as a tool to talk about social evils, women’s rights, terrorism and many such pressing matters. Through her various series such as the Interstellar series, the Nocturnal Series, and the Inner reflection Series, the artist has sought inspirations repeatedly from her life, dreams and hopes to portray subjects which are as moving for both her and the viewers.
Bahaar’s works have gone on to become part of some of the most reputable collections both in the country and internationally, including the royal family of Abu Dhabi, DLF, Hindustan Times, as well as many leading law offices. She has also actively pursued art law by pushing relentlessly for more affordable and transparent dealings in art. Bahaar has been the recipient of the prestigious SAARC an award for the best emerging artist in 2017. In the year 2018, she represented India in the Art Laguna Exhibition at Venice. Pernod Ricard sponsored and displayed Bahaar’s solo exhibition at The VIP Lounge of India Art fair.
