Meena Hasan’s work articulates a South Asian American diasporic experience through its nuanced approach to issues of representation, subjectivity and personhood. Working in painting and handmade materials, the artist constructs her works through a metaphorical engagement with material and process—developing a complex language of mark-making that asks the viewer to participate in the work itself. Hasan’s work both states and questions her own historical perspective while leaving space for the viewers to reimagine their own.


Meena Hasan was born in New York City in 1987. The artist received a BFA in Studio Art from Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio in 2009 and an MFA in painting and printmaking from Yale School of Art in New Haven, Connecticut in 2013.
