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 1935 in Amritsar, Paramjit Singh had his art education in the School of Arts, Delhi Polytechnic (1953-58). He was the founder member of 'The Unknown', a group of young painters and sculptors based in Delhi.

Paramjit Singh’s landscapes, with their loaded silence evocative of the other worldly, became over the years, a distinct mystical utterance in pictorial terms. The esoteric in his landscapes was perhaps young Paramjit response to the mystery in tensions between the deep pictorial space and the sharp shadows of inanimate objects in the picture metafisica, a short-lived school in modem Italian art, and to the later Surrealist paintings. All these were transformed over about two decades into a personal statement in Paramjit's paintings.

From around the late 1980s, Paramjit's landscapes and his techniques changed radically. The Italian picture metafisica with their sharp shadows and melting tones receded into oblivion, and there emerged lush Indian landscapes with a mystical vision of a transcendental presence.
His paintings came under the hammer at seven important art auctions in India and at Christie's in London, and at the auction by Vadehra Art Gallery, Delhi-London, in 1994.  In 1988, Paramjit Singh was the Commissioner for the Indian participants in the Art Festival of Pakistan, Lahore. He painted a 450 sq. ft. area for an environmental room in Bombay in 1990-93. Paramjit Singh lives and works in New Delhi.
