Shipra Bhattacharya

Born in West Bengal, 1957, Bhattacharya graduated from Calcutta University in 1975 and studied at the Government College of Art and Crafts as well as the College of Visual Arts, Calcutta. With her dense drawing, detailed imaging, smooth brushwork, glowing colors and dreamy quality, Bhattacharya has managed to chalk out a distinct identity of her own. Her recent work revolves around feminine figures and their dream world – women, urban and rural, each seeking fulfillment of her secret passion or exploring the inner void of unfulfilled desires.
