Riya Chandiramani's paintings explore bold ideas in today's society with intricacy and wit. Ethnically Indian and born and raised in Hong Kong, the notion of East meets West is embedded into her work, a pastiche of traditional and popular cultural references. Riya's mission is to bridge ideas of the past with modern times, whilst challenging constructs and ideals that keep our civilization divided. Riya graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a BA in Communications, concentrating on gender; as well as minors in Fine Art and Chinese.
