Puneet Kaushik is an Indian Asian Modern & Contemporary artist who was born in 1972.
He is a perceptive artist who through his work tries to probe the very essence of being. His work is intensely personal, defining abstract expressions in his emotional, mental and social space. His work often exhibits a fascination with the human body in all its visceral detail, including an abundant use of the colour red. The impact and scale of his sculptural work is enunciated by the delicate use of wire-mesh along with traditional textiles and materials. He attempts a manifestation of duality, a fine balance of light and shadow, gravity and lightness, silence and speech, and most importantly, of the inner and outer self.
Puneet Kaushik’s works have been exhibited at Gallery Espace; Alliance Francaise de Delhi; Takashimaya, Tokyo, Japan; Kala Art Gallery, San Francisco; Modern Primitive Gallery, Atlanta and many others.
He has participated in several art workshops and camps, and is the recipient of the Junior Research Fellowship, Department of Culture, Government of India (2000-2002) and was Nehru Research Associate, Jawaharlal Nehru Trust (1998-2000).
The artist lives and works in New Delhi.
