London-based British artist, Sheefali Asija finished her Masters in Fine Arts from Chelsea College of Arts in December 2019. She completed the Complete Atelier Program from 2012-2014 in New York at the Fine Arts Atelier of Union Square. She has exhibited her work in New York, Miami, LA, London, Paris and Vienna.
Sheefali Asija captures the sublimity of colossal pieces of technology—the Large Hadron Collider, Saturn V rockets, Tokamak nuclear fusion reactors—as a celebration of humanity’s collective achievements. Much like the sacred architecture of the past, these scientific feats have the power to inspire collective optimism and wonder. Sheefali draws on the aesthetics of machinery and translates their intricate designs to large-scale paintings that, upon first glance, recall the radial symmetry of Gothic rose windows or Buddhist mandalas. In the age of devastating climate change and post-truth politics, Sheefali urges us towards scientific education and global cooperation.
