Nisha K. Sethi
Nisha Kaur Sethi is an artist/activist from Berkeley, California. As a woman of color who is deeply invested in uplifting her community, Nisha’s work serves as seeds for the resistance in which bright, bold lettering and images dance their way into the streets where they echo the chants and songs of the people. Modern and traditional techniques are woven together to create mixed media art focusing on social change. Found object art also plays an important role in Nisha’s ethos of creating sustainable work from recycled materials. Paper and wood are used to create collages and hand-painted signs on reclaimed materials; breathing new life into objects that have otherwise been discarded. Nisha is currently working as a Sign Painter, Graphic Designer, and Letterpress Artist - exploring both digital and analog practices. Her neon beveled letters pay homage to Indian Sign Painters while spelling out messages for a better, brighter future.
