Mamta Chitnis Sen

Artist Mamta Chitnis Sen “Art is something that I love connecting with, it is an extension of my works with words,” says Mamta Chitnis Sen, a journalist and an artist who claims she loves documenting social crises through art.

With an experience of over two decades in journalism having worked with reputed publications (Mid-Day, Society and The Sunday Guardian where she handled the political beat and Dignity Dialogue, India’s foremost magazine exclusively for the 50 plus age group as the Executive Editor) Mamta presently looks after Media Advocacy for Child Rights and You (CRY) –an NGO working for the rights of underprivileged children in India.

Having studied painting and ceramics from Sir J J School of Art, it was during her stint with JJ that she founded Canvas Clan a congregation of painters of various age groups and curated two group shows under the banner, namely Random Strokes and Resurrection Bihar, the latter to commemorate centenary celebrations of Bihar state in Mumbai. She was felicitated by the Bihar government for the same and was also appointed as a Consultant for the Bihar Government’s Bihar Foundation—where she handled Art and Culture.

The Art

Women have been an integral part of her work both in writing and in art. Her paintings highlighting the plight of women farmers in rural parts of India have been exhibited in India and abroad and have received an overwhelming response.

She was also associated with World Citizen Artists -- a forum of international artists, musicians and writers founded in Paris and was selected by WCA to create art for World Humanitarian Day and World Mandela Day. In 2015, Mamta was invited by the Mayor of Bressuire in France to showcase her paintings in the city’s 11th century castle followed by an exhibited in Copenhagen, Denmark in a group show. Her art has been published in international art journals and anthology such as Studio To Studio—The Artists’ Working Theory & Practice and Les Femmes Folles: The Women 2016. Mamta has hosted capacity training workshops for women from political parties as well as from the unorganized sector and has authored a paper on these experiences titled ‘Evolving Role of Women in Political Parties.’

Apart from the above, Mamta has been exhibiting her art in exhibitions in India and abroad in countries like France, Denmark, Germany and Lithuania. She participated in a residency in Vilnius, Lithuania hosted by Sanskritik Mandala from Lithuania. Her works are in private collections in countries such as South Africa, France and Morocco.
