Vaidehi Kinkhabwala is a Multidisciplinary Artist from India. She received her MFA in Studio Art from Montclair State University in 2010. She lives and works in New York City. Multicultural experiences shape her recent work. Bicultural experiences and struggle ensuing from transition to America has fundamentally shaped her recent work.
The Rooster Series is a set of metaphorical portraits of the men she has known in her life. Growing up in India, women have typically been the ones on display. They are oppressed and do not have a voice to express themselves fully. These portraits are my way of alternating the cultural dynamic she is so used to seeing, instead placing the men on exhibit.
The men represented in these portraits are unaware that they are being displayed.
