Satish Gupta

A multi-faceted artist, Satish Gupta is a painter, sculptor, poet, writer, printmaker, skilled draftsman, muralist, designer, calligrapher and ceramicist. Born in 1947 in New Delhi, Gupta studied art at the College of Art, New Delhi. He then moved to Paris in 1970, on a scholarship to study graphics and lived there for two formative years. Gupta’s works are known for its special meditative quality. As a viewer one experiences a sense of calm detachment, that the artist is both a participant and an observer in his own life. Satish’s works are often gigantic and are displayed in museums, airports and hotels. “MA” was one such painting, which was 1.6 kilometres long on the beach in Puducherry, perhaps the longest in the world. He also has a 23 feet sculpture in Copper “The Buddhas Within” in the permanent collections of the Prince Of Wales Museum (CSMVS) in Mumbai. His sculpture on The Sun God is at the International Airport in New Delhi and created a 30 feet long mural for the Bengaluru International Airport. Another monumental 5 piece metal sculpture ranging from 11.5 feet to 35 feet in height and weighing over 22,000 pounds inspired by the five primal elements, is located at the Jindal Center in New Delhi. Satish Gupta has exhibited at more than 37 solo shows at important art galleries within the country and abroad. His works are in the permanent collection of the NGMA, New Delhi. His works were acquired by The Museum Of Sacred Arts, Brussels and were exhibited in the show “Forms of Devotion” in Thailand and the Shanghai Museum of Modern Art. His zen works were exhibited in the Ethnographic Museum in Slovenia. The artist also collaborated with India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi on a Sculpture painting “Om Namo Shivaya” for a charitable cause which was auctioned by Sotheby’s. Works have been exhibited at the Venice Biennale and Art Laguna, Arsenal and at The Deborah Colton Gallery in Houston in 2017. He sculpted the Utsav Murti of ‘Ling Bhairavi’ for Sadhguru’s Isha Ashram in Coimbatore. His book ‘Zen Whispers’ was released at the Jaipur Literature Festival in 2018. “Roaring Sea — Still Mind” an exhibition of his large sculptures, paintings and calligraphic works was displayed at The Visual Arts Gallery at The Indian Habitat Centre, Delhi in 2019. This exhibition was also displayed in Los Angeles and at Gallery Falkenstern Fine Art in Germany in 2020.
