Born in Mumbai, Kalpana Shah (b. 1957) is a self-taught artist, collector and curator. in her pursuit for creativity has been painting for the past several years with the year 2008 marking her breakthrough as an artist with the creation of her own signature style of knife-work acrylic art on canvas. Since then, she has had multiple solo and group shows several cities across India, in London, and now Singapore. Her style was first recognised and collected by one of the most celebrated and internationally recognised Indian artists of the 20th century, M.F. Hussain.
My Universe is Kalpana Shah’s longing to escape into the vast expanse of space, driven by an unyielding fascination with the cosmos. Observing the stars from afar, the curiosity to explore the mystery abyss holds the artist captive. She finds visions of visuals in her mind and finds a colourful expression through materiality that evokes textures, taking up physical space in her current realm.
