Jayeeta Chatterjee

Jayeeta Chatterjee, born in 1995 in West Bengal, India, is an artist with a Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking from the Faculty of Fine Arts at Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, India, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Kala Bhavan, Visva Bharati, Santiniketan, West Bengal, India. Her artistic journey has been marked by several exhibitions, including her 2024 solo exhibition ‘An Eye Inside’ at Chemould Prescott Road, Mumbai, and the 2023 group exhibition ‘Continuum’ at Chemould Colab, Mumbai. Chatterjee’s work has been part of Immerse exhibition and residency in Mumbai, she was also part of Chemould Colab and Khoj Peers residency. She has also been honored at the Haugesund International Festival of Relief Printing in Norway.

Chatterjee’s practice is deeply influenced by her suburban upbringing and is characterized by a blend of printmaking, textiles, and embroidery. Her work explores the nuanced interplay between women’s external environments and their inner worlds, particularly within domestic spaces. Central to her art is the traditional Nakshi Kantha embroidery of Bengal, which she revitalizes with a contemporary twist by integrating it with woodcut print. This fusion allows her to weave the stories of middle-class homemakers, reflecting the socio-economic and cultural narratives of the region. Her focal point therefore resides in unveiling the often overlooked yet profoundly significant identity making of one’s self.  Currently based in Bangalore, India, Chatterjee continues to push the boundaries of printmaking and offering a fresh perspective on the traditional arts- crafts of her homeland.
