Born in 1969 in London, Bharti moved to New Delhi in the early 1990s. Her work explores questions about contemporary life, class and consumerism in modern day India. In part inspired by artists such as Hieronymus Bosch, Goya and William Blake, Bharti references magical beasts, monsters and myth in her work. She uses the ‘bindi’, a dot indicative of the third eye worn by some Indian women on their foreheads, as a motif and building block in her work. Bharti has had solo shows around the world – from at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, the Nature Morte Gallery, New Delhi and the Jack Shainman Gallery, New York.
