Cintia Malhotra is a visual artist who was born and raised in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Her family was involved with the local arts community and, as a child, Cintia was encouraged to explore different art forms. Despite having a visual impairment, she chose to focus on the visual arts. Her eyesight is an important factor in her process.
Much of her photography involves a combination of abstraction and personification to create a narrative for the viewer. The titles are an important element supporting the overall vision. There are also bodies of work that are documentary or street photography in style – still captured through the eye of an abstractionist.
After years of working as a designer and photographer, she taught workshops on digital imaging, was an adjunct professor for learning institutions in New Jersey, and has had her photography exhibited nationally. Cintia holds a BFA with a photography concentration and an MS in Graphic Communications Management from Kean University. A 25-year resident of Union County, NJ, she enjoys living close to New York City.
