Born in 1993, Biraaj Dodiya is a Mumbai-based visual artist primarily working in painting and sculpture. She received her MFA from NYU in 2018, and a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2015. Forms and language around absence, uncertainty, and impermanence influence her work. Working within abstraction, her paintings are built through processes of repair and erasure, often evoking the nocturnal landscape and evoking questions of distance and temporality. Dodiya’s sculptural works often combine discarded objects, industrial material, personal relics and studio detritus.
