Embracing Femininity Through Art ft. Sarbani Bhattacharya

Unstoppable Woman with Shailja Saraswati

Dec 9 2021 • 31 mins

Singapore-based artist Sarbani Bhattacharya is a highly regarded artist. Her paintings are popular with private collectors in Europe and Southeast Asia. But her purpose of painting goes beyond being part of collections and recognition.

As a painter, she is looking to “think, express and search the self” thus paving the way for self discovery. The subjects she chooses - Tree of Life, Mother & Child - are evocative and suggest ideas of fertility, growth and nurture and, perhaps, a spirituality that undergirds that relationship.

The drive to be symbiotic in all forms of existence is what makes her Unstoppable. In this episode, Sarbani joins Shailja for an impassioned discussion about art, femininity, and creative expression.
