Born in 1968 in Kochi, Kerala, India, Radha Gomaty attended the Foundation Program at NID, Ahmedabad, and then went on to earn her BA in Fine Arts – Painting from Faculty of Fine Arts at MS University, Baroda, while involving herself with the Indian Radical Sculptors & Painters Association in her final year there. Taking periodic breaks from academia to work on various pursuits and diverse occupations, Radha completed a postgraduate course in History of Art from Viswabharathi University, Santhiniketan, and later briefly did research in Philosophy in preparation for a Ph.D. which she later abandoned. Radha, also a poet, works in a range of media, including video, painting, sculpture. In a mix of natural and other material, most of her art is layered and conceptual – mythic in nature and classical in approach. Her poetry has been published in two collections and she has exhibited in solo and group shows throughout India. Two of her works are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Sacred Art in Brussels, Belgium.
