Ohida is an art practitioner/multi-media artist who explores art as a way to make sense of pressures of identity, through the intersections of gender and religion. Her observation of different cultures in India, growing up in rural Bengal, and moving to Delhi have nurtured her artistic expression. She has a fluid sensibility when it comes to her art, that translates into her works adhering to several mediums, that express a conquest over predominant cultural impacts.

Her work has noticeable elements of miniature styles of paintings, and she uses moving images that are embellished with elements she encounters in her vicinity, such as Islamic Architectural Patterns, Arabic Calligraphy, Decorative Motifs, and different cultural layers of society.  

Ohida's works tell a story through her dexterous use of film and painting that offer unskewed commentary on the social and political underpinnings of society. 

Ohida currently lives and works in Delhi. She completed her BFA from the Govt. College of Art and Craft, Calcutta and MFA from Faculty of Fine Arts, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi.
