Jan 17 till 28 :: Art Exhibition: Annandi Merhai’s Bollywood – Images and Themes

The artist’s subjects and inspiration are drawn directly from the Bollywood films she loves. From portraits of film stars like Sushmita Sen and Arjun Rampal, to exploring the love stories, mother figures, gems and colourful bazaars that appear in many Bollywood films, Merhai presents a diverse cultural exploration through the lens of her artistic practice.

Merhai’s passion for art and fascination with anthropology and the Indian diaspora are combined in a substantial thematic body of work. Her work has been exhibited at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre, Canadian National Exhibition (as part of Masala Mehendi Masti) and the Art Gallery of Mississauga, and on campus in the Gales Gallery and the Eleanor Winters Gallery.
