"Care and Empathy."
Princess Pea is an anonymous Indian artist whose work investigates notions of gender identity and the self. Drawing from a variety of influences including literature, mythology, crafts, contemporary politics and society, she is best known for her deeply evocative and collaborative performances and sculptural practice. Representing strong feminist messages and made in collaboration with traditional Etikopakka artisans from coastal Andhra Pradesh, her series of miniature wooden sculptures have been widely popular and have contributed to the revival of the age-old toy making art form. Princess Pea’s work has been featured by leading platforms including India Art Fair, Art Dubai as well as galleries around the world. She currently lives and works in Gurugram, India.
