"The internal balance that must be attained through clarity of mind is a characteristic that I seek to embody in all my works. I value using tactile and durable materials to contrast the tender delicacies of the natural world. It is the omnipotent intermingling of these diverse ecosystems that inspires me to craft my sculptures." - Sonal Ambani

Sculptor Sonal Ambani began her creative journey three decades ago, sculpting across various mediums and styles. Her work bridges the gap between nature and urbanization, seeking to create a delicate bond between these two diverse ecosystems. Each piece is adorned with her symbolic peace sign, a theme that is at the core of her work. Sonal sculpts with the intention of challenging the viewer to create his/her own meaning by reflecting upon their own life experiences. She believes that art needs to find that balance between visual elegance and intrinsic contemplation. 

Sculptor and author, Sonal Ambani is at her best when surrounded by art, eclectic design and, most importantly, nature. Having experienced and been influenced by the larger-than-life world of art, both in the natural environment as well as in museums around the world, Sonal expresses her artistic energy through equally impressive sculptures in various materials - mild steel, stainless steel and bronze.


She started by creating topiary sculptures 30 years ago, and Sonal’s work continues to have a free style and is unbridled by convention, leading her works to be the focal point of conversation by themselves. Her stainless steel elephant, Elegance in Steel, which was at the India Art Fair in 2015, found a home in Switzerland. A vineyard in Nashik has been named ‘The Red Tree Vineyard’ after her towering 25 feet tall, majestic sculpture, (Tree of Serenity). She was selected to be among 101 people to create a piece for the Elephant Parade in India. Her piece went on to be showcased in Mayfair, London.

This multi-faceted woman has won several accolades in the arena of peace for her project www. worldpeace2040.com, including the prestigious Pfeffer Peace Prize given to her in New York. Peace is a cause that is close to her heart and if you look closely at her sculptures, you will find her signature peace sign hidden away.
