Drishti Bhandari - Jewelry Artist

“I recognize, decontextualize, reconstruct.”

 

My work tends to focus on the environment, the evolution of man and his surroundings. I like to recapture what once belonged to man and nature. Some of my subjects are visually appealing and some are unconventional. It often tells a story and demonstrates how life extends beyond its own subjective limits.

Having a contemporary approach, I still try to stay true to my roots. By focusing on techniques and materials, I try to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way, like to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes physical and believes in the idea of function following form in a work.
