Pallavi Bhargava


Pallavi completed her graphic design degree from Symbiosis Institute of Design, Pune. She picked up the paintbrush in class 8th and hasn’t left since then. In Pallavi’s own words - “I believe that art is like a fresh breath of air and a way of self- expression. My work is an expression of my thoughts, my different moods, and a way to help myself connect with people. After conducting 40+ workshops, the one thing I can assure you is that if you're holding a brush for the first time, it won't be the last. You will want to paint again and again.“
