ABOUT ME

I am Abhijna Vemuru Kasa, a Hyderabadi artist based in San Francisco, California. My work is inspired by feminism, womanhood, and mythology. I use mediums of painting, performance, fiber, and photography to reflect art for feminism and pose questions of femininity in the world. I finished my Bachelor of Fine arts in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a merit scholarship and Master of Fine arts at Royal College of Art, London. This helped me to expose my art process and subject matter to different perspectives. After becoming a mother, I started to take huge inspiration from motherhood in my expressions. I currently reside in the bay area, California working as a full-time artist and a mother.

"The artist's choice to paint the body, impose a narrative that explores the feminine in man, woman, plant, and animal, to commend the essence of the female, her myriad emotions, sensations and passions are more of a self-search" - Avani Rao Gandra Artist/Curator/Writer

"Felt so wonderful to meet Abhijna and am so lucky to get her book. While reading it, her paintings make deep sense and few lines are so intense that I can relate to myself." - Sirisha Mulupuru Entrepreneur/Influencer

"Abhijna picked the feminine quality as a metaphor in her works to express herself. The intermingled influences of the contemporary culture from her experiences in the US, and the culture from back home where she was raised." -Lakshmi Reddy Artist/Professor
