Artist Bio

Amrita Sethi 

Amrita is an award-winning, golden visa holder and the first NFT artist in the Middle East. Born and raised in Kenya, a British citizen of Indian origin, residing through Switzerland, Zimbabwe, Uganda, and the United Kingdom, before moving to Dubai in 2007 - Amrita’s art reflects her international diversity and combines the sweetness of tradition and storytelling with the energy and technology of the modern world.

After a successful career, spanning 15+ years, in some of the world’s largest multinational banks and insurance companies, Amrita left the corporate world for a deeper calling, which eventually led to the creation of a new multimedia art form, she named as “Voice Note Art.” ©️

The unique idea led to her recognition and winning of the “Outstanding Artist Award” at World Art Dubai April 2019 and selected for Expo 2020. Amrita has also created live activations and installations at Art Dubai March 2019 and the Asia Contemporary Art Fair in Hong Kong in October 2019. She has also painted 3 murals at the iconic Souk Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai, UAE.

Amrita then went on to launch her first NFT portfolio in 2020 and became the first NFT artist in the UAE. In 2021 she was nominated by the Dubai Arts and Culture to receive the prestigious Golden Visa Residency in Dubai for 10 years for her contribution to the Digital Art Market in the UAE.

She has also created Voice Note Art Portraits of various people as well as celebrities and world leaders, most notably, a commissioned artwork for His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum in 2020.

She is a digital artist who also uses traditional painting methods, collage as well as 3D printed artwork to create layered modern looks. She works on wooden and acrylic panels, aluminum, paper and canvas. She integrates technology into her artwork through the use of QR, AR and VR.

Amrita studied Mixed Media at Central Saint Martins, UAL. She also holds an MSC in Development Economics and a BA Hons degree in Economics from The University of Manchester.
