SUJATA BAJAJ


Born in 1958 in Jaipur, Sujata Bajaj completed her PhD in Indian Tribal art from Pune. Having worked on a thesis on tribal art, the artist calls it  "an extraordinary milieu, one peopled with ancient heritage and myths." 

Having stayed in france under a scholarship, the artist was extremely fascinated by France. There is a resemblance of French and indian aesthetics in her artwork. Each of her paintings acts as a variation to the ancestral inheritance. Such as the presence of the ochre yellow and the red recalls the ritual circle of sacrifice. The artist has experimented her works over multiple mediums such as etching, wood-cut, sculpture, murals, cold ceramic, fibre-glass, metal, mixed media and acrylics.

She has been a part of prestigious shows organized by IIFA and Tao Art Gallery namely – Power of Peace for UNESCO in Bali (2007), Indiart at the Ueno Royal Museum, Tokyo (2007), House of Lords, London (2007).

Sujata Bajaj spends her time between Pune, Norway and Paris.
