Jayant Gupta (Profile)

 Jayant Gupta (b. 1987, Dohrighat, Uttar Pradesh, India)



About his work

Jayant Gupta is a contemporary visual artist working in Jaipur. His father being a commercial painter, Jayant was exposed to art from quite a young age. His works are derived from his own personal experiences in the present socio cultural situations of our time. He is exposed to a wide range of materials and mediums, like drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, and mix media.

He has been involved in making a variety of works, which evolve from a wide spectrum of emotions and desires; engaging visually through the body and space into the vulnerability of the human condition, its insecurities, fears and complexities... The human being, for Jayant, is a very fragile entity; driven by his own emotions and struggles; between his self-created thoughts and social realities. Deriving an ideal human being from the stream of fearful blackness, sufferings and pain; or even better to say: from the realities of life may be his underlying motive. One can easily sense a psychedelic or a psycho-drama in his visual aesthetic, which denotes the complexities and mysteries of life.
