Poorvi Bhana

Bhana was born in Gauteng and grew up in Pretoria, where she first studied Art.  She makes frequent trips to India and has toured Europe and North America as an accomplished musician and dancer.  Inspired by her father, a leading sculptor in the community, she has elected to pursue a career in the Arts, admitting that her inspiration is drawn from both African and Indian culture.   
Since graduating from art school, Bhana has featured prominently in exhibitions, both as exhibitor and curator.  Creating pieces like Sankhya and Chandra Graha (2009),   she excelled and quickly gained the respect of her peers, as an artist.  Bhana was selected as a finalist at the Sasol New Signatures Art Competition (2009) and awarded a merit prize, later winning first prize for the piece, "Om asato ma sadgamaya, tamaso ma jyotirgamaya, mrityorma amritamgamaya" at the Thami Mnyele fine Art Competition.
Today, Bhana may be found at the TUT art campus, where she lectures part-time, inspiring art students in pursuit of their dreams, in her workshop creating commissioned pieces.
