Devi Seetharam


The daughter of diplomat parents, Devi has lived all around the world, before moving back to India in 2021, after a five-year stint in Australia. She is a painter, and primarily works with acrylic on canvas and uses reductive techniques to create grain, texture and form. Thematically, she explores the cultural psyche of the spaces she occupies. A graduate of LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore, she was shortlisted for the Mojarto, Incinerator and Darebin art prizes and featured by Kings Gallery, Melbourne. In India, she participated in a three person show at Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke in Mumbai in 2020; Lokame Tharavadu in Alappuzha in 2021 curated by Bose Krishnamachari; and the fifth edition of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale in Kochi in 2022.
