Janavi M Folmsbee, Houston, United States / Mumbai, India
Janavi M Folmsbee wants to live in a world where we can close our eyes and make all the plastic in the ocean disappear.
Folmsbee was born in 1987 and raised in Mumbai, India. In 2005, she moved to the United States of America to study at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (S.A.I.C). As an artist, she has shown her work in India, Beijing, Europe, Dubai, and the U.S.A. Folmsbee’s works have been featured in international fairs like Kunst Rai and Art Rotterdam and in print media such as Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia edition), The Times of India, the Houston Chronicle, and Houston Modern Luxury.
When Janavi is not in her studio creating new work or off on a scuba diving adventure in an exciting location like the Maldives, Belize, or Turks and Caicos, she’s visiting The Cy Twombly Museum in Houston, swimming, or writing fictional stories.
Folmsbee currently works and lives in Houston. Lately, she has been creating large murals throughout the city. At the moment, her current work continues to grow and evolve into different series related to marine conservation.
