INTRODUCING SALT ARTIST Sneha Krishnan


Sneha Krishnan is a visual artist, designer and entrepreneur who spends her time between New York and India. Her works are an expression of a space where internal conflict and the external world integrate. Through this interaction, she hopes to unravel the different layers of human consciousness with a focus on the female lived experience. Sneha has a Bachelors in Design from National Institute of Fashion Technology, New Delhi and a Masters in Art Business from Sotheby’s Institute of Art, New York and currently resides in Goa, India. ​

In painting, Sneha finds a way to process the layers of human observation and its retention in the subconscious. In this wordless dance, she finds a true oneness. The large works on paper are made over the course of a few days, marks and motifs added each time Sneha walks by the painting, manifesting something observed during the day or dreamt of the night before. She finds charcoal holds memory- an ash representing the cusp of life and decay, a medium used across all her works. ​ In painting, Sneha finds a way to process the layers of human observation and its retention in the subconscious.

"They walked closer to the parts of them which were in pain, parts of them which ached to be healed by touch. They longed for a touch which could absorb the intensity of their suffering. They dreamt, as they ran their fingers through the thick wet paint, soft and dense like actual flesh, of absorbing all the pain and putting it in a place outside of their body. A place far away from human consciousness, a place perpetually out of reach, a place where all human suffering is held with utmost caution, never to reach us again." - Sneha Krishnan
