Aishwariya Chandrasekar is a visual and traditional artist whose acrylic paintings and pen & ink drawings explore concepts that drive her curiosity, such as human behavior, societies, and social change. By utilizing repetitive lines and shapes, she draws on ideas of fractals, intersections, composures, and emergences to form a multi-disciplinary approach to such explorations.
She has a BSc. in Psychology with a minor in Neuroscience, a BSc. in Business Management, and an MSc. in Social Anthropology. Her interdisciplinary background informs and contributes to her artistic practice.
Supported by Maryland Traditions Folklife Apprenticeship grants in 2010 and 2022, she has been trained by her mother, Shanthi Chandrasekar, in the traditional Indian art form of Kolams.
