Bharti Kher is an Indian contemporary artist, her work encompasses painting, sculpture and installation that often incorporate elements of her Indian heritage. She was born and studied in England, however upon travelling to India for an intended six months travelling after graduating, she has remained permanently living and working there ever since. 

For Kher, bindis play a pivotal role in her work. "The bindis now for me have become a material," she said. "I took the material, I repeated it again and again and again. I made it mine. I can use them like an alchemist would use or to create something that I don't really know what's going to happen with."
