Aparajita Ghose paints for the love of it. Often that love dives into a subterranean stream not surfacing for days, months or even years. At other times it takes on life expressing in various forms…random scribbling on scraps of paper, acrylics on canvas to painting discarded packing boxes.With no formal training, she works from simple observation.

Aparajita grew up in Kolkata, India. The vibrant art and culture of the city and her family’s encouragement all fuelled her personal pursuit of the visual arts. She enjoys the sacred space of the act of painting. There is never a plan, more an opening to a possibility. Vibrant colour, bold lines, freedom and movement are expressions of her work.

A graphic designer, yoga practitioner and teacher, Aparajita currently lives in Dubai.
