A Free spirited maverick. Upam loves to travel, discover cultures and meet people. Paint from his experiences, think, meditate on what he is thinking about, and transmute these thoughts and experiences into artefacts as well. Human beings, Cosmos, and Consciousness awe him, and the intricacy with which these three co-exist, keeps him curious. Curiosity keeps him inspired, “Look around and you’ll realise that there is so much that we don’t know, and the best part is, can we ever know it all?” He identifies Art as a way to store information; hence, a mode of communication that he uses to communicate stories of the multidimensional world he inhabits. He is currently at the Ecole supérieure des beaux-arts de Nantes Métropole, Nantes, France.
‘My working process at the moment is based on the different departments: Painting, Sculpture, Photography and Print making that I am exploring as a part of my cursus. The work stems out of simple forms that we are familiar with and morphs itself with different ideas and gestures in the process of its making.
My approach to art is in a schematic way, inviting the viewer to enter a state of contemplation. I rely on the inquisitive nature of people to appropriate meaning to the forms invented in a manner where the authority of the work is not dictated entirely by me.
During the process of research and production new areas of interest arise and lead to a new body of work.’
