About Purnima Gupta:

“I love to explore new ways to paint with a lot of texture. I have been painting for almost ten years. My interest has been with developing faces and figures and playing with a lot of texture. I have been experimenting with all kinds of media,be it clay, glass, textile , pebbles.etc. i like putting in a lot of textures in my work . I don’t plan a layout, and just go with my instincts to apply colours or texture. I was very impressed with Lucas’ famous story “The Face On the Wall” and keep finding a face here and there in the texture surface. I create. I like vibrant colours, which I probably imbibe from the bright coloured attire, women in India wear.”

To follow her:


Purnima’s Art can be summarized as:

1) Facial expressions emanating from colorful abstract background

2) Rich colors on facial features define mixed emotions

3) Thick textures and impasto emphasis the depth of emotions

4) Emotions can also be seen in visual position of eyes
