Artist Profile

Shan Re is a contemporary Indian artist and a master of abstraction with thought provoking mysterious layers and complex textures. She explores unknown and unseen dimensions invoking inexplicable emotions. Shan creates a magical language through her colours and textures.

Shan has explored various mediums like drawing, painting, installation and poetry. Her intense curiosity is the reason to evolve as a powerful abstract artist with an enigmatic representation of pious colours and hidden emotions.

She redefined her creative potential with a fashion partnership. She collaborated with a sustainable luxury fashion brand, Aranyani, to create two collections of single edition bags with her signature artwork which were show cased at the New York Fashion week.

Shan also organises art and wellness workshops to create awareness about the importance of mental health and psychological immunity. She strives to create awareness on mental health through visual arts and having a positive conversation about emotional well-being and highlighting the role of art as therapy.

She constantly believes in sharing her resources, time, knowledge. She recently published an adult colouring book called “Creative Meditation with Colours” to encourage people to start small, with colouring, to help cope with difficult situations.

Shan is associated with many fundraising charity auctions and supports

important causes. Shan says, “Helping charities has been a priority of mine and I have many fond memories. I feel fortunate to be an artist, to be able to support many causes even during my struggling days.”

Each painting of Shan can be considered as a complete poem in itself and it appears to be a sudden capture of a fleeting moment. Shan is a deep thinker and her spiritual exploration is reflected in her paintings.

Her narrative works have an immediate intellectual impact on viewers and stimulate an inner dialogue. Her process and philosophy make her works “timeless” - independent of time and space.


Her work has captured the interest of art connoisseurs across the world including London, Singapore, New York, Berlin, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Oslo.

Shan says... 


“Listening to the quite voice within me...

Exploring infinite dimensions within myself...

Standing on the thresh hold of new experience...

I have been painting 

The Canvas of my life...

Drop by drop...word by word..

To unwrap my own destiny...

Passion flows through me 

Like a stream of colour

In the flames of passion

I create breathtakingly 

Beautiful masterpieces 

From the deep sea of mystery

Somewhere between 

Memories and fantasies 

Between echoes of silence 

and  hope... I am intoxicated 

and addicted to the power creativity...

My inner fire is what keeps me going"
