Arghya Priya Majumdar was born in West Bengal 15th January 1966. He qualified from the Kala Bhavana, Visva Bharat University in Santiniketan gaining a B.F.A (1989) and M.F.A. (1991) in Painting. He has exhibited in numerous Group shows throughout India and internationally in the USA, England and Thailand. His work has also been exhibited in the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi and the Birla Academy of Art and Culture in Calcutta. In his work he combines real and unreal human forms and in doing so he seeks to express the undercurrents of emotional pettiness, melancholia and mysticism which lingers in the repetitive cycles of daily human rituals.
Through exaggeration and distortion he embellishes the multi-faceted and hidden dimensions which often exist beyond formal or mundane human representation and the superficial aspects prevalent in society.
Argyha lives and works in Santiniketan.
