Deshna Jain

This is Deshna Jain, born in Dhamtari, Chhattisgarh. I did my studies at Indira Kala Sangeet Vishwavidyalaya. I am a sculptor, painter and history lover! I seek rhythm and volume in my artworks with the thought of cultural differences and feminism. I make what I feel and what I want the world to feel about the subjects mentioned. My ultimate goal is to be able to get closer to art with my subjects and let everyone have an emotional experience with an artistic touch and dramatic rhythms.
