Artist Bio:
​​​​​​​Born and raised in India, Piya Samant now lives and paints in the awe-inspiring New England region, USA. After pursuing a career in Technology, she picked up the brush again in 2014 and commenced her full-time art practice.
Piya’s paintings are characterized by colorful, light-filled canvases in a painterly style. Her work is exhibited in museums and galleries across USA. As a self-taught artist, Piya has learned art techniques by observing artworks of Master artists. She is represented by PXPContemporary and ArtsPlus galleries.
In 2022, Piya received a WCC/ Mass Cultural State grant to further her painting endeavors. 

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Artist Statement: 
'Beauty is fleeting and my desire to capture the beauty of life (be it human, flora or fauna) is irresistable. As an introvert, I connect with people's body language more than their words. Through painting I attempt to immortalize the beauty of my subjects in their entirety; not just their face and body but also their character. Floral stilllifes are a delight to paint because I am able to project emotions onto unsuspecting flowers through the play of light and strategically placed brushstrokes.'
