Anupama is a Dubai-based artist whose varied work includes paintings, sculptures and installations. Her work is an exploration of herself within as well as the world around her. She is an introspective person who may mull over a thought or concept for many months or even years, exploring, researching and developing it before the final work emerges. At other times, she finds an idea flashes spontaneously and her art almost creates itself. For Anupama, art is both a means of communication with her audience as well as a release of her own thoughts and emotions.
Anupama has created work in a range of media. She often finds objects that have been discarded and incorporates them in creative and unique ways in her work bringing out each material's unseen beauty. She is a strong exponent of upcycling and has even bought waste material that appealed to her and she was unable to throw. Her work uses defined flowing lines which have a lyrical quality and serve a softening counterpoint to the strong ink tones.
Anupama was born in Kolkata, the cultural capital of India and was raised in a family where literature, art and music formed a part of everyday life. She trained in classical dance and music in her early years and received a degree in English Literature from Calcutta University. She also practices yoga, meditation and spirituality. She believes these elements, in combination, provide the foundation for her work and the ideas behind it. In addition to creating art in her Dubai studio, Anupama has exhibited, taught and conducted workshops over the years, both locally and internationally.
