Nabanita SAHA
(b. 1974, India)
Nabanita Saha (b. 1974, India) is a visual artist whose works have no fixed source. Instead, Saha takes inspiration from whatever images she is attracted to amongst literature, poems, music or film, as well as mythologies. She then combines her source images with her personal observations of reality, particularly within India’s sociopolitical realm. Sometimes her work borders on the political, other times the sentimental, paradic, iconic and occasionally the feminine.

Saha paints visual points such as cows, buildings and crowds of people in stark colors such as red, brown and grey. Her heavy messages are enhanced further by her use of a large canvas, presenting lesser-seen, underprivileged rural societies. During the social upheavals in her native country during the late 1990s, Saha gathered visual source material from nearby villages on the edge of Kolkata. Struck by the kindness and generosity of the rejected members of society, Saha was determined to make audiences feel their pain and suffering. Her work continues to search for answers to issues of global warming, poverty and inequality.

Nabanita Saha was born in India in 1974. In 1999, she received her BFA from the Government College of Art and Craft in Kolkata. In 2002, she continued her studies as the MS University in Vadodara to obtain her MFA. She has held numerous solo exhibitions since 2001, primarily in India and with an exhibition at Stellwerk Atelier in Basel, Switzerland. Her work has been featured in group exhibitions in museums and galleries around India, with several exhibitions taking place overseas such as at the ASYAAF in Seoul. The artist currently lives and works in Baroda, India.
