Born in 1975, New Delhi, Nupur Kundu’s artistic persona effortlessly combines her passion for art and Indian classical dance. The artistic aspect of life struck her natural instinct by way of her obsession with painting and dancing in the formative years of her childhood. The cultural environment of Springdale’s School in Delhi nurtured her talent further. She joined the College of Art, New Delhi in 1993 for her BFA degree in painting. The aesthetic environment of the college helped her realize her dream at a professional level. She also further honed her skills in Indian classical dance by completing her Sangeet Bhaskar in Indian classical dance (Kathak), and has several dance performances to her credit.
Nupur Kundu’s paintings are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The vibrant colours are always balanced, never out of proportion. At a deeper level, her works take you into an unknown labyrinth you don’t quite know how to get into , the labyrinth is not intimidating nevertheless. The works can be seen as explorations of the human psyche – the complex web of thought processes, actions, reactions governing the psyche. It is like undertaking a visual exploration of the human psyche. Nupur has participated in several exhibitions both in India and abroad. Apart from exhibiting in India, her works have travelled to Dubai, Singapore, USA and Mauritius. She also held a solo art exhibition at the Art Indus, Santushti Complex, New Delhi in April 1999. She has held two-man shows at the Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai in 2001 and at Surya Gallery, Hyderabad in 2000. She has conducted several workshops in painting for the British Council, New Delhi.
