Niyamat Mehta (b. 1999) is a rising artist whose artistic vision has garnered significant attention within the art world. From being the youngest artist on display at the Palazzo Albrizzi in the 2022 Venice Biennale, to showcasing her work at the Kensington Town Hall in London, Arte Fiera di Valmadrera In Rome and more, Mehta is cementing her reputation in the art world. In an interview with Firenze Yes Please, she cited theatre contemporary form of Beethoven’s final String Quartets as inspirations for her work, which despite being written almost two centuries ago, baffle the most avant garde artists to this date. Immersed in the thriving galleries of London, Mehta draws from the interplay between consumerism and artistic expression, channelling elements of surrealism influenced by Leonora Carrington and Man Ray. While many of her most celebrated works are commentaries on the prevailing zeitgeist, Mehta received her training in the advanced pedagogical method of Robert Bodem called ‘drawing in space’. At sixteen, she was selected as a protégé to Master Sculptor Jason Arkles in Florence, Italy. Expanding her technique under Arkles, she made portraits from life using the sight size method of the Old Masters and went on to study as the youngest student at the prestigious Florence Academy of Art. Today, Mehta regularly lectures and conducts masterclasses at institutions including the London Fine Art Studio, Firenze Geko Art Studio and has her own private studio ‘Atelier Della Firenze’ in New Delhi.
