'RAGE, RAGE AGAINST THE DYING OF THE LIGHT'
Mumbai-based artist akshita gandhi uses lightboxes to express her inner sensibilities
Alpana Lath Sawai

Akshita Gandhi is a Mumbai-based artist who, having shown her exhibition ‘Let there be light’ in galleries abroad (New York, Miami) has brought her works home. Her artworks use mixed media and are accompanied by a sonnet that conveys her artistic intent.

Gandhi has created a concept of a lightbox to showcase her work because light, she says, speaks louder than the darkness surrounding it which rises in the forms of prejudice, hatred, racism, and misogyny. Thus, Gandhi perceives her effort as a vehicle of social change with an immersive quality. She says, “I wanted my pieces to serve as a constant reminder that real change needs to come from within, only then can we make this world a better place to live in.”
