Subodh Gupta was born in 1964 in Khagaul, Bihar. He is interested in what inevitably disappears in the process of such change. The extensive use of stainless steel utensils in his artwork codifies the complex socio-economic, as well as, cultural situation of present day India. The artist lives and works in New Delhi. Subodh Gupta’s work exemplifies the iconography of a banal, precarious, edgy and bustling everyday life humungous in magnitude, blown out of proportions, peeled out of their ordinary skins by their sheer mass and volume.
