About Mansi Bavishi:
Mansi Bavishi is an artist, Jewelry designer from India residing and working in UAE since 2016. Mansi’s true passion is building bridges between the past and the present. She says: “My life today is about finding the beauty in simple subjects, capturing that beauty in a meaningful way, and displaying it with artistic intent.” In 2019, she founded the Lippan Art Studio, where she now specializes in cyanotype photographic prints and traditional lippan folk art – two areas where she has truly managed to make a name for herself. Mansi’s work is unique and sought-after by collectors because she is the only artist working exclusively with cyanotypes in the UAE. Mansi’s progression as a cyanotype artist has led to the development of modern techniques which are reflected in her commissioned works – frequently encompassing unique, personalized cyanotype portraits. Inspired by the rich cultural phenomenon of Expo 2020, she is currently working on developing 3D cyanotypes, scheduled to launch in 2023.SEE ALL EVENTS
