  • About

    Nalini Malani currently enjoys considerable international fame. Having trained at the distinguished J J School of Art in Bombay, Malani explores the political and postcolonial issues of urban and Third World poverty, decay, exploitation and violence. These complex and difficult themes are brought closer to home through her use of a narrative style and her innate interest in, and profound respect for, the human subject affected by this turmoil. In her 'Hieroglyph' series Malani creates a layering of images produced by techniques she calls 'cloning': monoprints photocopied and worked over in ink, charcoal, watercolour, pen and collage. Malani fashions a complex, layered image which alludes to the multifaceted urbanity of a small street in an area of Mumbai known as Lohar Chawl. She uses her practice to give vision to those stories which history often sweeps aside.
