About Me

Pragati Sharma Mohanty is a promising and fast evolving artist with many reputable shows and international recognitions in her bag. She is an industrial designer and an architect by profession. Being tagged artistic since early childhood, she continued to hone her artistic talents and went on to obtain her Masters in Product Design from the prestigious National Institute of Design, India.
Hailing from North India and having travelled and lived in many parts of the world, she understands and appreciates the beauty that is inherent in diverse cultures, tradition, art, and architecture. Her works are ethnic yet simplified and reflect her Indian roots. Pragati draws inspiration from her rich traditional esthetic values and then uses her unique visual interpretation to create an abstract medley to give a new meaning to her works.
