Savia Mahajan began her formal artistic training in her home city of Mumbai, at the L.S. Raheja School of Art. Though she trained as a painter, since 2010, Savia’s practice began moving away from the medium of painting, towards ceramics. The transition was the result of a “relinquishing of traditional art mediums (and) a deeper inquiry about practice.” She has since, worked extensively at a local pottery studio in Mumbai, which has given her the space to experiment and develop many of her ceramic processes and techniques.
These developments in Savia’s practice resulted in “Liminal” - her first solo exhibition at TARQin September, 2017. This was followed by a landmark group exhibition - “Mutable: Ceramics and Clay Art in India Since 1947”, curated by Dr. Annapurna Garimella and Sindhura D.M. at the Piramal Art Foundation, Mumbai.
Previously, Savia participated in an auction organized by Christie’s in Mumbai, in support of the NGO, The Akanksha Foundation (2003). In the same year, she was a part of two exhibitions – ‘Shakti’ and ‘Personal Gods’ at Gallery Beyond. She was also a part of Chawla Gallery’s annual art exhibition,curated by Shibani Chawla and hosted at The Habitat Centre, New Delhi. She also participated in Art Dubai 2006.
Savia will be participating in the Indian Ceramics Triennale, to be held in Jaipur in August this year.
Savia currently lives and works in Mumbai.
