Mequitta Ahuja talks through her process and influences with The Agora Culture.
Mequitta’s work has been exhibited throughout the U.S as well as in Paris, Brussels, Berlin, India and Dubai. In February, 2010, Mequitta was profiled as an “Artist to Watch” in ArtNews. Holland Cotter, art critic of the New York Times, in his “last chance” article on June 1, 2007, sighting Mequitta’s NY debut exhibition Encounters, stated “Referring to the artist’s African-American and East Indian background, the pictures turn marginality into a regal condition.” Mequitta is represented in Europe by Galerie Nathalie Obadia. She lives in Baltimore, MD.
