Sculpture | Visual Art | India


"My works often explore that mysterious, elusive space that lies between the utopian and the dystopian. While suggesting both an intimacy and a monumentality, my approach reflects the paradigm “the personal is the global". 

Romicon Revola a.k.a Romi is a contemporary artist based in Bangalore, India. Trained as a sculptor, she has experimented with a variety of media. Her work encompasses monumental public sculpture, installation, painting, and video.

Romi has often appropriated the stainless steel material, often considered either industrial or masculine, to weave narratives engaging with feminine musings. In her recent body of work Cosmic Bloom: Iconography for a Reimagined World Order she seeks to explore new archetypes or perhaps even revive forgotten mythologies as a response to the several inter-connected and tangential issues surrounding sustainability, consumption, geology and ecology. She references subtle dichotomies while alluding to the power of empathy, resilience and nurture. 

From 2005 onwards Romicon Revola has installed public sculptures and has held exhibitions in Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkatta, Kochi, Ahmedabad and Mumbai. Her work is in various private collections in India and abroad. She is involved in various art initiatives and community art programs. She is involved in several art initiatives and community art programs.
