Gurcharan Singh

Biography from Christie's Mumbai

Born in 1949 in Patiala, southeastern Punjab, Gurcharan Singh started his artistic career at the Government College of Arts & Crafts, Chandigarh, in 1973.  Gurcharan's signature paintings of ordinary folk, men, women, children and animals often reflect the plight of the underprivileged, the social underclass, the invisible and the exploited in India.

As the artist states, "These are all things that I remember from my childhood, which I relate to even now." (Artist statement, S. Mehta, 'Gurcharan Singh displays new works', Hindustan Times, 15 January 2012)

His passion for colorful and large scale works continued, and he has held solo exhibitions in several art galleries in New Delhi, Mumbai, Paris, London and Seoul.  His works have also been shown at the International Biennale in Tokyo (1984), at the Contemporary Art Show in Seoul (1986) as well as the Festival of Contemporary Art in London (1988).
