This aspect of her art has opened up multiple meanings as she is engaged with representing ideas of existence, mythology, cultural codes, and intricacies of psyche – both individual and cultural. The 1950’s art scene inspires Shefali’s paintings, predominantly from CoBrA and the Avant Garde movement, and her paintings are defined by a unique style of semi-abstract, naïve and spontaneous compositions of creatures, both human and animal . Story telling is important to Shefali as she believes the ability to tell them is an essential part of our being.
