Rina Banerjee is an Indian-born, New York-based artist. Her work draws on her wealth of interests from fabrics, heritage textiles, fashion and historical architecture to explore diaspora and post-colonial moments. Banerjee was born in Kolkata in 1963, but moved to the USA with her family where she trained to be a polymer research chemist. She soon gave this up to dedicate her time to creating art. Her recent exhibitions include The Matter Within: New Contemporary Art Of India and Forever Foreign at The Haunch of Venison.
