Born in Khagaul, Bihar (India) in 1964.

Lives and works in New Delhi.

Subodh Gupta is one of the most prolific of Indian artists and has taken part in numerous international exhibitions. Born in 1964, Bihar, the seat of Buddhist learning, he now lives &works in New Delhi. The objects he uses in his work appear as emblems, as icons which with confident simplicity codify the complex social and economic, as well as the cultural, situation of present-day India. Gupta uses a rich variety of means to express and produce large sculptures, paintings, installations, photography, video and performance. It is perhaps as a sculptor that one ought to define this artist, aware as he is to the physical presence of the object, of the aesthetics and symbolic attributes of materials, and of the relationships between space, time and body. 

Some of the recent exhibitions he has been a part of are: In This Vessel Lies The Philisopher’s Stone, Galleria Continua, San Gimignano, Italy (2017), Art Unlimited | Art Basel 2017, Basel, Switzerland (2017), Subodh Gupta. Everyday Divine, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia (2016), Ali Baba, Galleria Continua, Les Moulins, France (2016), When Soak Becomes Spill, Victoria & Albert Museum, London, England (2015), Everything is Inside, National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi, India (2014), Tampere Sara Hildén Art Museum, Finland (2011), ‘A glass of water’ Hauser & Wirth, New York (2011) Faith Matters, Pinchuk Art Centre, Kiev (2010); The 4th Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale, Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Fukuoka; Un Certain État du Monde, Le Garage, Moscow Centre for Contemporary Culture, Moscow; Altermodern: Tate Triennial 09, Tate Britain, London, Who’s afraidof the artists?, Palais des Arts de Dinard, Dinard (2009); “Line of Control”, Arario Beijing, China (2008).
