Bio

Asha Ganpat is a sculptor who was born in Couva, Trinidad, in the late 1970s and presently lives/works in New Jersey .  A descendant of indentured slaves from India and an United States immigrant herself, Ganpat exhibits an acute understanding of the ideas of home, of culture, and of identity. She received her B.F.A. from Mason Gross, Rutgers University and M.F.A. from Montclair State University. Ganpat has shown at institutions such as the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Insitituto di Cultura, Exit Art, The Noyes Museum, Seton Hall University, The Jersey City Museum and the Nathan Cummings Foundation. She is a alumni of Aljira's Emerge program and has received the award of Best In Show for her work in the Metro Show at City Without Walls in Newark New Jersey. In addition, Ganpat is an adjunct professor of sculpture at Montclair State University and Middlesex County College.
