Viraj Mithani is an interdisciplinary contemporary artist and educator. His work derives from historic artistic cultures and worldly traditions and his practice floats between painting, print and sculpture. They are morphed with dichotomies that include abstraction versus representation, traditional versus progressive, the epic versus the everyday, organic versus technological and are sporadically loaded with personal life anecdotes.
Hailing from Mumbai, India, with a traditional background in the arts, he graduated with a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2015). He also holds a diploma degree from Chelsea Camberwell Wimbledon College of Art and Design (CCW) of University of Arts London (2012). His selected exhibitions include: Clark House Initiative in Mumbai, Spudnik Press Cooperative in Chicago, Dalarnas Museum Falun in Sweden, Meken Smedjebacken in Sweden - Falun International Print Triennial, International Competition Lithography Litho – Kielce in Poland, Hammond Museum in New York, Williamsburg Art and Historical Centre in New York, Flushing Town Hall in New York, Sullivan Galleries and Gene Siskel Film Centre in Chicago.
Viraj has also been part of Artist-in-Residency programs at Spudnik Press Co-operative in Chicago, Vermont Studio Center in Jhonson, VT and Space 118 in Mumbai.
Viraj Mithani lives and works in Mumbai, India.
