Arunanshu Chowdhury

Born in 1969 in Hoogli, West Bengal, Arunanshu Chowdhury studied art at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda (1993- 1995).

Having spent most of his life in Baroda, Chowdhury’s art confronts urban violence in a manner which does not shock, but rather leaves a lingering feeling of vulnerability, almost haunting the viewer. Playing with the idea of historical memory, Chowdhury’s work can be called a reaction to acts of extreme violence. 

Arunanshu’s works resonate with the idea of historical memory. They are his reactions to the extreme violence of our times. Besides these concerns his work delves deeper into the predicament and precariousness embedded in the contemporary society. According to Arunanshu his art is created, "by juxtaposing several images, creating movement and a haze of memories, I have tried to animate the jumble of life, the fast pace and imposition of material things in my recent work."

Arunanshu was awarded with The Elizabeth Green shields, Foundation Grant, Canada and Ravi Jain Foundation Award, New Delhi in 1995.

He lives and works out of Vadodara.

His exhibit with us is titled Jana Gana Mana Adhinayaka and is an oil, acrylic and mixed media on canvas made in 2021.
