First at Khoj
Bio Last Updated


Known for his socially-engaged paintings, sculptures and installation work, Probir Gupta builds up a complex image-base of resistance. Drawing his references from history, world economy, cinema, media and mythology, Probir’s activist endeavour comments on the urgencies of the present. Probir received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Government College of Arts and Crafts, Kolkata [1981] and went on to study at École National Supérieure de Beaux-arts, Paris [1982]. He continued to live and work in Paris until 1987 before coming back to India. His first solo exhibition in France was held at Caen, Normandie [1984], followed by a significant exhibition at Palais Des Beaux-arts, Brussels [1986].
