Shaleeka Ahuja

New York-based artist Shaleeka Ahuja was born and raised in India. In her abstract paintings, she draws inspiration from historical buildings and events. In images that are at once ruined and flawless, she uses a special layering technique to establish visual depth and transport us to a bygone age. She also employs textured fingerprints in an allusion to  individual freedom.

Ahuja has exhibited in New York and California. She is also a skilled illustrator and is currently at work on a children’s book.
