Manvee Vaid on Indian Folk Art

For our November broadcast of APA Compass on KBOO 90.7 FM, I spoke to Manvee Vaid. Manvee is a practicing artist and curator of Indian Art based out of Chicago, Illinois. She experiments with various art media ranging from acrylic, oils, gold gilding and faux finishing to murals. She has a bachelors in fine arts from Sir JJ school of Arts, Mumbai India. Manvee is passionate about Indian folk art – an art form that is less known in the contemporary art scene. Her collection, which includes works from presidential award winners to up-and-coming artists, has been displayed at several universities including the University of Chicago. You can learn more about her work at her website and her blog.
