Manu Saluja’s work hangs in public and private collections in the US, Canada, London, Scotland and India. Her paintings have been exhibited in numerous museums and galleries including the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, The Reach Gallery Museum in British Columbia, and the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art in Wisconsin. Saluja is a 2013 recipient of The Stobart Foundation Grant and a finalist in the Art Renewal Center’s 2010-2011 Salon of Contemporary Realism. Saluja’s 2016 solo show was covered by Fine Art Connoisseur, Huffington Post, and Fast Company Design.
Her current work depicts moments and tattered landmarks along her New York City commute. Combining realism with elements of abstraction, she seeks to express the vulnerability and resilience that coexist in people, places and objects.
Saluja studied with John Frederick Murray privately and at the School of Visual Arts, receiving her BFA in 1997. She has an MFA in Painting from the New York Academy of Art and is adjunct faculty in their Continuing Studies Department. She also teaches drawing and painting at the Long Island Academy of Fine Art.
Saluja is currently represented by Hersh Fine Art in Glen Cove, New York.
