Piya Samant Bio
I am Piya Samant, a self-taught visual artist and art curator. Born and raised in India, I now reside and work out of my home studio in Massachusetts. I have several degrees in technology and management but none in art. After working in the tech world for well over a decade, I decided to pursue my career as a full-time artist and curator in 2014.
Oil is my first love; I enjoy working in graphite, charcoal, and acrylic as well. I've painted commissioned portraits of people and pets, explored painting flora and fauna, and am also currently focusing on landscapes painted in oil using palette knives. My artwork has been exhibited in local museums, galleries, and cafes.
