Biography

TINA BOPIAH (born 1943), having been born into one military family and married into another, has led an itinerant life in cantonment zones across India. Brought up in an atmosphere that emphasised creativity in diverse fields, she turned her attention to the visual arts during a decade spent mainly in Kashmir. Beginning with representational concerns, she quickly developed an idiosyncratic vocabulary of images and experimented with heterodox techniques and media, using ink, crayon, turmeric and coffee, before embracing her chosen egg tempera. Bopiah has held three solo exhibitions (Art Heritage, New Delhi, 1998 and 2000, and the Pundole Art Gallery, Bombay, 2002). She has been invited to exhibit at numerous group shows and curated exhibitions, including, most recently, ‘Masterpieces from the Alkazi Collection’ (Art Heritage, New Delhi, 2002) and ‘Strangeness’ (curated by Ranjit Hoskote, Anant Art Gallery, Calcutta, 2006). In 2002, Bopiah designed and painted the backdrops for the staging of Gulzar’s plays at the Tata Theatre, National Centre for Performing Arts, Bombay. Essays on Bopiah’s art include Ranjit Hoskote’s ‘Phrasing a New Colloquial of Images’ (Art Heritage exhibition catalogue, New Delhi, 1998) and Nancy Adajania’s ‘A Sister Grimm for our times’, in Art India Vol. 4 No. 4 (2000).
