Artist's Profile
Manil Gupta
Manil Gupta-Monart Gallerie - Indian Artists Gallery
Born in 1978, the artist did his graduation from College of Art, Delhi, BFA (Applied Art) 1999 – 2003.

His work has always been a study of the whole human situation. Inevitably, the images are figurative, coz that’s what we can relate to the most. The protagonist is mostly a reflection of his own self. But it also tries to make a generalized observation/statement.

The issues he works on are that of the distancing of human emotions, ‘corporatisation’ of the society leading to an overall sense of increasing human insensitivity. It’s about today’s consumer-driven society in a mad rush for (short-term) material gains. It’s a clash between our filthy desire for luxury / extravagance and coming to terms with the harsh reality of unequal distribution of resources. Overall it’s a sincere effort to relish the human predicament in good humour.

He has had several group shows some of which include -

• The Holi Camp, Global Arts Village, Delhi – 2006

• Platform (magazine), Prodigy, Olive, Mehrauli, Delhi – 2005 - 2006

• Eternal Recurrence: The Return, Shangri La Hotel, Delhi – 2005

• Teenscapes, Gallery Artfelt, Delhi – 2005

• Metrospective: Visual Representations of Metro Sexuality, Kitab Mahal, Mumbai – 2005

• Navsar (Mercury Rising) Visual Arts Gallery, IHC – 2005


The artist lives and works in Delhi.
