About

Rhea Gupte is a visual artist, poet, photographer, creative director, writer and consultant based in Goa, India.

Rhea was born in Mumbai and grew up with varied creative interests at a young age; writing poetry, dreaming up stories with fantastical worlds, exploring animation. Her practise is an amalgamation of her skill set in varied disciplines which stems from the joy of practising the creative process. Across her different bodies of work, human emotion and exploring its vulnerabilities and strengths forms a common thread. The aspect of having an emotional connection with the viewer, being a storyteller and starting a conversation are important to her work. Self-growth, self-care, an openness with personal struggles and changing societal perceptions deeply reflect in her creations. Generating minimal waste and living mindfully are values which inform her ideas as well as her way of life and resonate in her body of work. Rhea is a published poet and her artworks have been exhibited in group shows across the globe. Her work has been commissioned by various clients and publications in India and abroad.
