degree in painting from the College of Fine Arts, Thiruvananthapuram, in
1995, and his Master's degree in art from Jamia Millia University,

Gigi Scaria's work draws the viewer's attention towards the painful
truths of migrancy and displacement. The issue of non-belonging and
unsettlement reverberate between the walls on his canvas. "Gigi's
particular position is to investigate how city structures, social
constructs, and the view of location is translated in social prejudice
and class attitude," says critic and curator Gayatri Sinha.
