Tanujaa Rane (Profile)

Tanujaa Rane Hambardikar (Born 1976, Maharashtra, India)


About her work

A prolific and highly skilled printmaker, Tanuja Rane is well known amongst the younger generation of printmakers in India and is ferociously committed to her painstaking medium. Rane’s work is imbued with a highly personal touch in a very indirect way, as she brings in an element of depicting herself in whatever she images: be it an animal subject, still life or flora.
