Gagan Singh

Born in 1975, Singh studied fine art in the UK and has exhibited in various group shows including the Sarai Reader 09 at the Devi Art Foundation, Delhi, 2012 – 2013.

The content of the work falls into two broad categories, the autobiographical and the erotic. In both cases, humour acts as a point of access through which other issues, often more serious, are explored by the artist.
