Currently on Exhibit

Ebb and Flow by Priya Handa

Painted Hummingbird by Priya Handa

Between the chaos of the world, and the order we attempt to create, Priya tries to find the in between and capture it as a visual. Primarily using paint, aerosols, or pencil. Priya is a visual artist born and raised in the Bay Area (Ohlone Land). She creates pieces working with local communities on large scale murals, to smaller pieces on canvases.  She hopes her pieces can be an intention, meditation, and offering to those that view, in hopes of taking them away from their everyday life.  Priya uses her work as a platform for social justice in her community. She has worked in different communities globally, from the Middle East to Mexico.
