Megha Mattoo was born in Cophenhagen in 1982.  She grew up in Denmark, Chicago, New Hampshire and Connecticut.  Mattoo graduated from Yale University in 2004, and moved to New York, where she has remained since.  Her work has been strongly influenced by both Indian miniature painting, which she comes to as the daughter of Indian immigrants, and Italian renaissance painting of the 14th and 15th centuries.  In her work she attempts to take apart these formative influences, and create from them new and personal narratives.
