Ananya is a 26-year old feminist Artist, Historian and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner based in London. She started painting seriously in November 2018 whilst being house-bound due to a brain injury (post-concussion syndrome). Using painting as a way to heal herself, Ananya is always looking for the next opportunity to translate political issues that matter to her into art. She primarily paints women of colour, using art to examine different gendered and racialised realities that shape their lived experiences. Her paintings depict women of colour as masters of their own narratives and histories, rather than muses or objects.
