Sheetal Agarwal


Sheetal S Agarwal is an internationally recognized documentary filmmaker and photographer. Born into a family of artists, she has won awards for best documentary at the Ann Arbor Film Festival and the Fort Lauderdale International film festival. Her research has focused on the impact of technology on the theory and practice of documentary films, and specifically on the nature of documentary. This drive towards truth through visual story telling lends itself strongly in her artwork as well.

Her work explores themes such as memories, representations of reality and reflections on the nature of historical truth. This can be seen through the uses of both photography, paint and resin to add and detract from the focus of various representational images.

Her exhibition history includes Singapore, Spain, Germany, New York, Hong Kong, and London.
