Manisha Kumar



Love for the arts was sown early in Manisha’s life – with her parents exposing her to finer aspects of music and art. While she learnt the basics of painting at the Triveni Kala Sangam in New Delhi, she is mostly self taught having educated herself about the various schools, periods and styles of painting through books. Her dream of attending the Delhi School of Arts after completing school came to a naught, due to focus on getting equipped with a “dependable” career. After pursuing varied subjects like history and fashion design, she finally found her mettle in the legal profession and is presently a partner at a leading national law firm.

Manisha moved to Mumbai more than a decade ago. In Mumbai, she missed the green surroundings of her growing years. Each canvas is an attempt to capture the beauty, significance and contribution of trees to our lives. Art intersects life and they find expression on these very canvases.

Following are the details of the shows in which Manisha has participated:
