Renuka has had an interest in making things since childhood, exploring drawing, paper mache, tie-dye and stitching. They studied digital video production at Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (with Honours) majoring in printmaking at Victorian College of Art, Melbourne. Since then, their work has reconnected with the childhood interests of playing with fabric and paper. Most themes and content in their work is personal, which includes the compulsion towards the hand-made. Their work inhabits a space that accommodates the imaginative, observational and autobiographical. Since 2012 they have been exhibiting regularly in group and solo shows. Recently they have exhibited at Vadehra Art Gallery (Delhi), Nichido Contemporary (Tokyo), Yokohama Trienalle (Yokohama) and Chitrakala Parishat (Bangalore). Their animation was also included in the Festival Mondial des Cinemas Sauvages (Brussels). Prizes include FICA Emerging Artist Award, Substation exhibition prize and City of Stonington Print Prize. They have been on art residencies at CONA (Bombay), T.A.J. (Bangalore) and Pro Helvetia + FICA (Lucerne).
