Mrudula Kunatharaju has completed her Masters of Visual Arts, MS University of Baroda, Varodara, 2014- 2016, and Bachelor of Fine Arts, Andhra University, Vishakhapatnam, 2010- 2014.
Some of her participations are: ‘Revolution and Counter- Revolution’, Secular Moment , Ajanta, Maharashtra, 2019; ‘VIS- A- VIS’ Kochi, Kerala, 2018; Khoj Peers Share, Delhi, 2017. She is the recipient of Artist Scholarship by Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India, 2014-15.

Mrudula, builds a ‘Feminist Worldview’, subjecting cultural taboos, gender equations, socio- political traces embodying shifting zones and time lapses. These views have interconnections, as territories, which form boundaries which are tangible. Mrudula’s specific works are markers of ecological imbalances, Invasions of Territories be it personal or collective. She contemplates on the notions of ‘EQUAITY’ both in Ecological terms and Anthropological.
Questions around body, space and intimacy are central to her concerns as an artist. Use of certain metaphors playfully subvert commonly held beliefs about femininity. Select works further discourses cultural conditioning, discrimination and violence experienced by people living in Marginalized Bodies.
Mrudula’s work experiments with technology, interactive social behaviour and gaze, as she subjects content and materiality over ornate aesthetics. Her practice ranges from paintings, performative videos and installations for the viewer to experience an experience.
