Meher Afroz was born in Lucknow, India and has been an artist and educator since the 1970s. She says, “I observe and interpret human emotions, expressions, values, and attitudes. My work is a journey concerned with the various phases of the evolution of man. My work also expresses my reaction to the present day “rat-race” which has proven to be a cultural and ideological loss. Meher Afroz has exhibited extensively in the country and abroad. She has been honored with several awards and her work is included in important collections.
