Her Story
Shohini Gupta is an independent artist and designer and mainly works with upcycled fabric and found objects. Presently, her practice involves upcycling used fabric, paper, scrap metal and found objects into wearable art, soft sculptures, textile art and installations along with drawings, paintings and murals.

She did her Bachelors in Fine Arts, specialising in Print Making from Kala Bhavana, Santiniketan. After finishing Art College she became a full time artist, taking up paintings, installations and performance art and later taught herself graphic and web design to enrich her artistic practice.
In 2012, she started her own handcrafted jewellery line SHOHINI and since then have been running her handmade enterprise on and off the internet.

Currently, Shohini has been creating a series of artworks, quilts and tapestries from upcycled fabric and other found objects incorporating the techniques that she has discovered as a jewellery maker over the years. The environment has played central role in her theme ever since she started exploring the world of upcycling as a designer, trying to create a sustainable brand.
