“In the technique or effect of my work, some things are visible and some are not. Some things that were coming up are submerged.” – Arpita Singh

Born in pre-Independent India, Arpita Singh ranks among India’s most well-known contemporary artists. For an artist not given to complex explanations of her own art, Singh’s works are quite complex – in themes, techniques and use of colour.
