Oliva Saha

  • Biography

    Oliva Saha (1998), was born in Hooghly, West Bengal. Currently, she lives in Vadodara. She completed an MVA degree in 2023 in painting from MSU Baroda, Faculty of Fine Arts. She completed her BFA in painting from the Indian College of Arts and Draftsmanship, Rabindra-Bharati University.
    Her works are inspired by her life journey and many objects are represented as her womanhood. She grew up at times shying away from reality and the complexities of life, this escape emerges in gradual chapters in her artworks. They speak about her experiences of growing up experimenting with paper, making surfaces as a material dying, and staining as methods. I use watercolours, tea stain, flower colour, Alta dye, Indigo, etc.

    Oliva depicts herself in the artworks in the form of its emotion and existence and her memories fuel them. They are visual images of conversations with herself. Her works have an autobiographical quality to them functioning as day-to-day documentation, appearing like journal pages that reflect the childhood and coming-of-age experiences of a woman in an Indian domestic setting.
