Born in 1968, I studied science before changing my course to pursue my passion for painting and trained at the Triveni Kala Sangam as a protégé of eminent artist Rameshwar Broota. I also studied art at the National Museum and in Mizoram. Through perseverance, hard work and devotion, I continue to experiment and innovate and bring freshness to my creations.The varied exposure gets reflected in my surreal work interwoven with beauty in a distinct palette and compositions.

Description of the artwork

My work talks about migration, movement, questions the existence of being, the philosophical approach of interdependence and a step towards a better balance of life.
The small conversations with the rickshawallah about their migration and their daily struggle collectively evoked in me a strong desire to express their emotions. These wistful canvasses highlight the highs and lows of urban existence giving expression to the dreams and realities that underpin the city life. I am intrigued by the shadows as they speak to me of a world, which is more real than the actual form and they connect me with my work.

    Sangeeta Singh: Migrant Shadows

    She is an artist who has trained under the eminent artist - Rameshwar Broota as his protégé at the Triveni Kala Sangam. A hard worker who is devoted to her art, Sangeeta constantly experiments and innovates to bring a freshness to her creations that are uniquely her own. She feels especially for Migrant workers and they play a major part in her collection of artworks. She herself has traveled widely and experienced migration firsthand for four decades of her life. The rickshaw pullers who are attracted to the bright city lights in search of jobs and a better way of life and with hopes and dreams of making a living are often given a voice through her art. They seem to be lost in the maze of the streets and are like shadows that go unnoticed. These wistful canvasses highlight the highs and lows of urban existence giving expression to the dreams and realities that underpin city life. While Sangeeta almost continued to study science in her formative years, the change to become an artist and study under eminent artist Rameshwar Broota has been rewarding.
