About the Artist

Suchitra Mattai lives and works in Denver, Colorado. She received an MFA in painting and drawing and an MA in South Asian Art, both from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. She has exhibited her work in New York City, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Minneapolis, Denver, Austin, Berlin, and Wales.

She inverts the familiar in order to complicate assumptions about gender and race.
