Shefali Ranthe

Visual artist Shefali Ranthe from Denmark

Visual Artist Shefali was born in Bangladesh and adopted to Denmark as a babychild. Is she Danish or not? We think she is the prettiest young Artist talent and a photomodel as well so Denmark should be proud.


After 10 years in Dubai the Global Art Award winner 2018, Shefali Ranthe international artist is now based in Copenhagen.


She knows for her brilliant compositions, vivid hues, rich textures, all that leads to the joy of life. That aspect of her art has opened up multiple meanings, and symbols. Shefali is engaged with representing ideas of existence, mythology, cultural codes, and intricacies of psyche – both individual and cultural.


She uses colors that have melted into one another and She attach paramount importance to the aqueous dimension that gives the work its organic, mineral aspect. Using vivid, contrasting touches, she echoes the traces of time, perpetual natural changes and the movement inherent in all life


In Shefali´s work she depicts situations with the intention of evoking stories in the spectators. She always tries not to be too literal, so spectators have space to discover their own stories. She finds evoking stories important because She think our ability to tell them is an essential part of our being.


Shefali says: “during the global Covid-19 pandemic, I, along with the rest of the world, spend a lot of time wandering around in empty and closed cities wondering about life. Looking up the sky watching the birds pass by above me made me think about the concept of freedom. Freedom, I thought, is double-edged: Both something we, as humans, praise and practice, while we at the same time restrict ourselves from it with human-imposed restrictions. Looking up the sky watching the birds fly over me became a symbol of ultimate freedom.”


She is curator and artist. She has participated is several art fairs in Middle East, US, Asian and Europe for instance in several biennales, museum and nationals galleries around the world.

Her collectors are from the whole world including the Royal family in Dubai, Oman and Abu Dhabi and also the Royal family in Denmark has Collected Shefali’s art.


Her art is permanent show case at The National Art Museum of China Beijing, The National Art Gallery in Dhaka, Bangladesh and at Bursa Museum of Migration History Art Gallery, Turkey
