BORN: 25 December 1983
My name is Peeyush Gupta and I am applying to the Montreal Residency because I believe that being well acquainted with many media will broaden my horizons at your facility. I have recently graduated with my Bachelors of Fine Art in painting from College of Art, Delhi. I am well versed in painting, but I am also a Photographer, printmaker, sculptor, and a metal smith.
My current works are about myself and my body. After going through an illness (in childhood) and having an organ removed I was confronted with a new lifestyle, and the ups and downs that go with it. My work is about the struggle that I have been through with my body, and the strength to work through this issues by representing them through my work.
You facilities will give me ground to build more on my conceptual ideas, and have the inspiration of an establishment that has housed so many brilliant artists in the past, and hopes to meet new emerging and existing artists to help my work grow for the future.
I have been displayed in many exhibitions at the College of Art as well as numerous small galleries throughout the northern India.
