Saloni Doshi grew up in New Delhi and graduated with a double Honours degree in Politics and Economics from St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai. She earned a Post Graduate Diploma in Social Communications Media at the Sophia Polytechnic, Mumbai and then moved on to pursue her Master’s in Media and Communication at the London School of Economics, London. She also has a Diploma in Art Criticism and Theory (ACT) and Indian Art Aesthetics from Jnanapravaha, Mumbai. After more than 5 years at the Times of India, where she played a pivotal role in digitizing all the print publications by creating their websites, she decided to pursue her passion and follow her heart. Saloni has been a devoted collector of art ever since she graduated from college; however, her journey into a career of art began when she interned at Osian’s fine art auction house for a brief period. Her vast collection consists primarily of young and mid-career contemporary artists. She decided to develop a part of her warehouse space in South Mumbai into Artist Studios and Residencies to give the artists’ community something that was lacking and much required in the city – space. She is now the Founder and Director of Space 118. An avid reader and photographer, Saloni also dabbles in writing for the arts and culture pages of TOI. She is the Founder Chairperson of the Bombay Chapter of Young FICCI Ladies Organization (YFLO) and is the Acting Chairperson for the London School of Economics Alumni in Bombay.
