Neelkanti Patekar, is a ceramic sculptor from Mumbai, India. A ‘Self Taught’ one. Sculpting comes very natural to her. Touching clay gives her immense satisfaction. She likes to work on Concepts, Expressions, Thoughts. Many of her sculptures touch upon social and political issues that we face in our modern day society, i.e. war, poverty, aging. Neelkanti uses the art of sculpting to express emotions, things we all feel and experience. It’s part of being human to feel joy, sadness, distress, relationship tensions. These are the things that we all experience and therefore can relate to on so many different levels.
Awards: 2015 Prafulla Dahanukar Art Foundation award for her work ‘WAR HUNGER’
