About Gunjan Tyagi

Visual Artist | Social Worker | Photographer & Performer

MFA from Sir J.J.School of Art Mumbai (2010) & BFA from Dept of Fine art, Kurukshetra University (2008), I am a young visual artist, experienced in organizing workshops & residency programs. I have been practicing Public & Nature Art by attending various International Art Programs. My works are installed in Hungary, Japan, Nepal, South Korea & Mauritius. I’m also a Treasurer for Training and Research in Environmental and Ecological Sciences (TREES).

I am also associated with ‘GLOBAL NOMADIC ART PROJECT’ in Collaboration with YATOO, a Korea based art organization. Though I have been trained as a painter but I also work in a wide variety of media including painting, sculpture, installation, film & design. My works are playful & humorous but at the same time expresses thoughtful questions about the society, cultural differences & identity of oneself!

  • Gunjan, coming from a small town in Haryana in India, has evolved her art practices into range of issues and ideas as well as mediums. She used various mediums in her art practices and explored the possible visual signifiers to reaffirm her commitments to environment, and nature of existence of women in the Indian caste-Hindu society. The aspects of visuality travel from many singular objects to multiple ones. Both the exterior and interior spaces become part of visuality and can be read as object-designs to represent the present. Textural surface of objects used as undulations to break surface into a corporality of varied objects. The traditional medium of water color explores various nuances of women’s existence in the traditional Indian household.
