Meet the Artist
Bharti Trivedi, born in India, is an artist and designer best known for her innovative techniques of manipulating rope into magnificent fiber sculptures.
Her work consists of pieces made up of natural sustainable fibers & her unique creative techniques of manipulating them, drawing inspiration from the interplay of the materials and nature. Within her work, one may find the glimpse of nature being translated into her own language of rope, starting from tiny adorable pieces to huge artworks, she has all in her studio!
Bharti studied electronics & communications engineering and worked professionally as a cyber security engineer for seven years before pursuing her own creative studio. In 2018, she started working as full time professional artist under the label of Yashi Designs.
Her creative urge and engineering background helped her to create unique designs which she calls them “engineered artworks”.
In this capacity, she created custom design/build pieces for public spaces including Stanly Ranch - Napa; Four Seasons Hotel, Mii Amy - Arizona, Netflix - LA, Haymax Hotels - CO, etc. along with restaurants & private residences around the world.
Always keeping her art making the center of her practice, Bharti began exhibiting her own unique work at Dove Art Gallery 2019, which she continues till date.
ABOUT HER PROCESS
Bharti doesn't find the use of fancy tools necessary to start her beautiful tapestries and fiber artwork. Her hands are all she needs to start manipulating the rope before it becomes the vision she held in her mind. She likes to integrate different textures, shapes, and hints of color to create visual impact in her work.
Each piece is meticulously designed and hand-knotted with some pieces taking months to fully complete.
Bharti uses natural materials such as yarns, cotton, wool, jute, linen and raffia in her handmade neutral decor to connect directly back to the nature that inspires her. Meditative processes such as knotting, weaving and wrapping are used to create a tapestry of knots intertwined together to form an art of both Scandinavian and Modern Farmhouse styles. Its so calming to see the connection of how knots work together to form an art out of simple rope.
