About the Artist
The versatility of the artistic mediums and techniques in Sudeshna Sengupta’s artwork reflect the unique background of her art career that spans over multiple decades, continents, and cultures.
Sudeshna Sengupta received her Bachelors of Fine Arts degree (Painting, 1983) and Masters of Fine Arts degree (Printmaking, 1985) from Visva Bharati, a university in India, founded by the humanist-poet and 1913 Nobel Laureate, Rabindranath Tagore.
She has taught art and textile design at college level for over fifteen years in Hyderabad and New Delhi, India and in Seattle, California, and New Mexico in the US, including at NMSU-Alamogoro where she established its first intaglio studio, developed and taught its first surface design/silk painting courses and taught its first Color Theory class in the late ’90s.
Since the late 1980s, her intaglio prints have been exhibited at various invitational print biennials in France, Germany, India, and Norway.
She has also curated Native American sections and New Mexico sections for a few of these exhibits.
Her etchings and paintings have been collected in museums, hospitals, hotels and galleries in the US, India and Western Europe, including the Association Musee d’Art Contemporain, France; Gerald Champion Memorial Hospital in New Mexico, USA and the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi, India.
Over the last decade, besides pursuing studio art and design — she has been presenting lectures, workshops, and community-based interdisciplinary art-forms often with a focus on multicultural experiences that emphasize human, cultural and environmental connectedness through creativity.
