About the artist

Arpana Caur is a contemporary Indian artist, born in 1954 in New Delhi. Arpana’s work are feminine in context, female figures emerge as symbols of solidarity, confronted by the tragedies of political violence and industrialisation. She draws inspiration from Punjabi literature and Bhakti poetry which contributed to the strains of melancholy, mysticism and devotion that are felt in her work. Painterly sources like folk painting and Pahari miniatures provided inspiration from her manipulation of pictorial space. She has had several solo and group shows since 1974 within India and abroad.
