About the artists

Dimple B. Shah is a multidisciplinary artist from Bangalore, India, and based in Vadodara, Gujarat. Across her career, Shah has working in painting, printmaking, installation, video art and performance. With an intention to blend these media into an interdisciplinary language and a  developing practice spanning decades, her work has primarily found its focus through humanitarian issues.

Cole Ndelu is a conceptual portrait and fashion photographer based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Her work counters popularised representations of black people and of Africa by creating imagery in which black people are a central focus. Her work is a celebration of blackness and a reflection of the love of the artist for their kin.
