Deviba Wala believes in the ability of art to foster connections. A self-described cultural nomad, Wala’s style of framing multi-tonal arrangements of linear forms in space gives an intriguing perspective of interconnectivity through space and time. Each linear formation is autonomous from the rest, and yet they project a foreboding presence of an inevitable interaction with the others that lead to questions of influence and identity. Collectively, they resemble network typologies.
