Roshni Vyam was born in 1994 to Gond artists. She grew up observing her parents and at a very young age knew that art was her calling. Growing up she took part in workshops and also illustrated books. For her undergraduate studies she secured admission in the art department of the coveted M.S. University, Baroda. Here she found the curriculum to be very regimented and westernized and thought she will get disconnected from her Gond roots, and decided to not join the art school. Roshni continued her practice and decided to pursue textile designing at NIFT, Bengaluru where she is encouraged to imbibe her traditional art in current fashion and is expected to graduate in 2016.
