Biography from Sutlej Art Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born 1937 in West Bengal, Arpita Singh studied at School of Art, Delhi, and the Delhi Polytechnic, 1954-59. Since the beginning of her career Arpita has been assiduously learning the craft of painting in rhythm with her absorption of modernist reductionism. Her native paintings are unlabored particularly piquant in their comments on the 'space' of women and the girl child in the society, and on the atrophied sensibilities of modern man vis-à-vis the growing violence and social injustice. Arpita literally 'builds up' the painted surface, with the same patient facility both in oil and watercolour. Today she is considered, without doubt, one of India’s most exciting painters.
Between 1973 and 1993, Arpita had 12 solo shows in New Delhi, Bombay, Amsterdam and in Germany. And in 34 years, from 1960 to 1994, she participated in 46 national and international group shows which included the Festival of India in London, at the Royal Academy of Arts, 1982, Indo-Greek Cultural Festival in Athens and Delhi, 1984, Five Indian Painters, in Istanbul, Ankara and Belgrade, in 1985, Festival of India exhibition at George Pompidou Centre, Paris, in 1986, the Second Biennale, Havana, 1987, Geneva: Coup de Coeur' Halle Sua, Switzerland, 1987. and in the same year the Algeria Biennale, Contemporary Figurative Indian Art Kuwait in 1988, Sotheby's Exhibition and Auction, New Delhi, 1992, 'India Songs' at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Sydney, in 1993, and 'Indian Encounters' in London in 1993, Modern and Contemporary Art, New York 2006.
Arpita lives and works in New Delhi.
