Mamta’s journey culminated in her first solo exhibition, a milestone that showcased her talent and dedication as a self-made artist. Her work gained widespread recognition, even earning her a spot in a documentary on DoorDarshan.
Her artistic expertise spans Metal Emboss Painting, where she breathes life into metal sheets with intricate 3D designs; Thread Painting, a masterpiece of innovation resembling painted brush strokes with vibrant threads; and Glass Painting, showcasing versatility with vivid and expressive designs. Under the moniker “MMM Art,” Mamta’s vision has begun to reach many, symbolizing Mamta’s journey and the canvas for her artistry.
The exhibition also features multiple sketches penned by her son Pradyun Dharma, which sigfnificantly highlight how the lady has efficiently passed on her creative prowess down in the family. The exhibition is going to be a powerpacked display of creativity on edge, mesmerizing other artists and enthusiasts alike.
