Anshul Roy (b. 1997) is a visual artist from Ahmedabad, India, pursuing his MFA in Art Photography from Syracuse University in Syracuse, NY. In 2020, he received a B.Tech in Bioengineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, where he became interested in the intersection of STEM and Arts and how these diverse knowledge systems could merge. Roy’s current artistic practice is inspired by Postcolonial discourses, exploring issues like cultural representation, identity, historical memory and visual ethics. He is interested in critically probing how Britishers employed photography in colonial India for “othering” and visual propaganda and how these ethnographic photos exist in our contemporary institutional archives. Roy has exhibited his work at :iidrr Gallery (Manhattan, NY), Art Gallery of Peterborough (Ontario, Canada), Light Work (Syracuse, NY), Manifest Gallery (Cincinnati, OH), Black Box Gallery (Portland, OR), Praxis Gallery (Minneapolis, MN), Photoworks (San Francisco, CA), Drewelowe Gallery (Iowa City, IA), SPE Media Festival (St. Louis, MO), Greenly Center Gallery (Bloomsburg, PA), and Full Circle Fine Art (Baltimore, MD).
