Deepikah RB

Deepikah R B (born 1985) is an interdisciplinary artist from India. Trained in Communication design from New Delhi, she uses painting and installation art to express issues related to gender, interconnectedness and ecology. Her project “Trial Room” tackles body dysmorphia and social conditioning, and was exhibited at Gender Bender 2018 and then at The Irregulars Art Fair in 2019. She was one of the three selected for virtual residency Fissure, curated by Shaleen Wadhwana by Pollinator which culminated as the project Sarv Satvik Rashtra | Atmanirbhar 2Q48 in January 2021. She was artist and organizer for the show “Aliens Aren’t Coming" that she also conceptualized in the summer of 2023. She is focusing on relationships between the human and non-human in her thesis at MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts at OCAD university, Toronto. Deepikah was also the recipient of the Ontario Graduate Scholarship in 2023.
