Shweta Bist is a South Asian American lens-based artist born in New Delhi, India and currently working and living in New York. Inspired by personal narratives, her photographic work is an exploration of maternal subjectivity.

With an interest in psychology and philosophy, Shweta uses metaphors of color, poetry, and symbolisms from nature and art history to explore identity, memories, perception, and emotions from a maternal and feminist perspective.

In addition to exhibitions in the United States, Canada, and the UK, Shweta has made presentations at academic and art conferences on motherhood studies in the US and UK. She is an artist mentor with Spilt Milk Gallery, Edinburgh, and is a co-founder of Mother Creatrix Collective, a collective that supports the work of artist-mothers by creating exhibition opportunities for its members.
