Born in 1970 in Delhi, acclaimed artist Shampa Sircar Das creates art that evokes a meditative aura, reflecting her fascination with elements of nature and spirituality. Dominated by vibrant hues, her work is inspired by India’s rich cultural heritage and philosophy.
Shampa completed her BFA (Painting) from the College of Art, New Delhi, in 1993 and MFA (Painting) from Jamia Millia Islamia, Delhi in 1995. She has held more than 10 solo shows in the last two decades. Her work has also been exhibited in more than 250 group shows in galleries and international art fairs across India, South Korea, New York, Dubai, Chicago, London, Vietnam, and Singapore. Shampa has won many prestigious accolades, including the Raja Ravi Varma Samman in 2018 and the Bharat Nirman Award in 2017 for brilliance in the field of art.
Replete with cosmic energies and symbolism floating all over her canvas, Shampa’s work is a study in the power of the spirit within the domain of human and earthly ancestry. Her canvas becomes a large area of space, a void where forms are constantly resonating, emerging out, expanding and then dissolving into. Transience and a sense of movement touch the viewer with a play between form and emptiness.
Spiritual symbolism from Vedic Hinduism and Buddhism, which is a part of the artist’s consciousness, translates into the forms and colors in her artworks. The ability of religions to convey implicit meanings takes the form of abstract background layers, supporting the figurative symbols. Shampa also borrows imagery from Tibetan sacred art, creating pieces that radiate tranquillity. She draws inspiration from her experiences while traveling in Leh, Ladakh, and Spiti, and the rich imagery in Indian epics and Bengali folktales.
Shampa Sircar’s artworks are part of the collections of various national and international collectors, corporate houses, galleries, ambassadors, embassies and government organizations. The artist lives and works in Delhi, India.
