Yuvika Garg is a trained contemporary artist based in Dubai. She studied Psychology and Economics and worked in the banking sector. Simultaneously she pursued art courses and is trained by professionals. Relocating to Dubai she found the opportunity to explore her interest in art. She successfully attended an internship at Art Dubai 2011 and hasn’t looked back since.
Yuvika primarily works with acrylics using a palette knife and brushes on canvas. The role of an individual in modern life, their journey, her extensive travels and a state of trance are all things that inspire her. She enjoys portraying her art stories in an abstract technique and believes that a painting is about capturing the essence of moments in unique artistic style – her vibrant work does exactly that!
Having participated in various exhibitions locally and internationally, Yuvika exhibits regularly at World Art Dubai, Fabriano in Italy, DIAC and IWS. She is also associated with some social cause events like ‘Empowering Girls through Education’, ‘Home Without Borders’ and ‘Less in more’.
Yuvika shares her skills and knowledge with her students and they have won various contests. She relishes working with children and participated in an initiative called ‘Joining hands’.

Artist Statement :
Every blank sheet takes me into a new world which I explore through my brush strokes. Finally, every work has an art story to tell.
