Chetnaa’s art captures the complexities of our post-industrial cities, ones filled with contradictions and dystopia. Mostly done in black and white, the two extremes of the spectrum, these artworks depict the metroscape with utmost simplicity and minimalism. She notes her fascination ‘with light, its passage, and how it turns and twitches and continues to adhere to its path.’ The urban cityscape with all its complexities, love, and loss, finds representation in her art.
She was declared as the Emerging Artist of Year by Glenfiddich, and also won the AIFACS award for her drawings, and an honorary award by the SCZCC. As a voracious reader, Chetnaa believes that history is what builds our present and our future, and finds solace in both fiction and art history books.
