Sudeshna Chattopadhyay

'I am a painter based in York, UK. I was born in India and lived there until 2000 at which point I left the country. I lived in Alicante and Mexico City for the next six years. My daughter was born in 2005 and the following year I moved to York. I graduated with BA (First Class Hons) in Contemporary Fine Art by University of Leeds.

My current body of paintings draw on my life-long love of folk art imagery, outsider art, fabric collections, surface pattern designs and personal experiences to construct mind maps of my inner journeys. I end up telling stories through my work which sometimes even surprise me.

I use acrylics, oils and gouache to work in an intuitive and playful way exploring their materiality.

I think of Peter Doig, Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall amongst many others when I work.


I exhibit and sell my work all over the UK.’
