Indira Cesarine is a multidisciplinary artist who works with photography, video, painting, printmaking, and sculpture. A graduate of Columbia University with a triple major in Art History, French, and Women’s Studies, she additionally studied at Parson’s School of Design, International Center of Photography, School of Visual Arts, Art Students League, and the New York Academy of Art. Cesarine had her first solo show at the age of sixteen at Paul Mellon Arts Center. Her work as an artist has been featured internationally at many art galleries, museums, and art fairs, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Hudson Valley MOCA, The Watermill Center, Mattatuck Museum, Albany Institute, CICA Museum, Smack Mellon, San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, French Embassy Cultural Center, Art Basel Miami, SCOPE Art Fair, SPRING/BREAK Art Show, Norwood Arts Club, Cannes Film Festival, and the International Festival Photo Mode to name a few.

Cesarine’s work has been auctioned in a number of art benefits including Sotheby’s New York Take Home A Nude, ARTWALK NY benefiting the Coalition for the Homeless, and Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research, among others. Her artwork and exhibitions have been featured internationally in many publications including The New York Times, American Vogue, Vogue Italia, Forbes, Newsweek, W Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, i-D, Dazed and Confused, New York Magazine, CNN Style, and The Huffington Post. Cesarine explores her creative vision as an artist vis-à-vis traditional and new mediums and finds strength in examining new ideas in contemporary culture.
Intaglio printmaking has been an important part of Cesarine’s artistic practice since she first started creating. Some of her earliest etchings date back to her high school days when she started studying intaglio etching as well as screen printing and other forms of printmaking. Her more recent works often feature vibrant inks in hues of pink, orange, and red. Her etchings are inspired by women’s history and the female gaze, often taking as inspiration historical figures from mythology, philosophy, media, and literature.
The “GIRLS” intaglio etching series is created with variations of line etching, soft ground, and aquatint etching on copper plates. The works celebrate the female form, re-appropriating silhouettes from vintage pin up images and re-positioning them in natural environments as an act of female empowerment and sex-positive femininity. Each of Cesarine’s limited edition intaglios are hand-printed by the artist on cotton paper, and include ink and printing variations which make each work of the edition unique.
