"Mukin has an unmistakable feminist underpinning using language and humour to champion the role of the woman. Surbhi studies languages and linguistic anomalies, and brings to attention strange coincidences between languages and cultures, with the strong belief that everything is connected, and if we recognise our similarities, we can build a better future. For instance, the umbrella bears the words, “Vaanar” that means monkey in Sanskrit, but translates to “Wo(h) Man” in English, to stress the ubiquity of women and their importance, putting them at the root of everything.
Piece sold. Series Available

Surbhi Modi is a multi disciplinary artist who re interprets? and re imagines disparate materials into objects, sculptures, and installations. She revels in creating iconic pieces that are driven by rigorous research, deeply conceptual thoughts and a genuine love for the unusual.
The results are sculptures - where form fights function, the abstract and the figurative collide and where man-made materials meet natural elements to form objects that ride dangerously on the precipice of practicability. Some are functional, while others wear the artifice of functionality. These are tribal or baroque, decorative objects that question the purpose of art and ponder its futility. Surbhi lives and works in Delhi and London.
