For more than twenty years, visual artist Chila Kumari Burman has worked experimentally across print, collage, mixed media, paint and photography with a predominantly autobiographical focus, exploring the construction of classed, gendered, sexualised and ‘raced’ subjectivities.
Having studied at the prestigious Slade School of Fine Art, Burman generates powerful works of contemporary Asian feminisms. Informed by bold colour, form and line with direction from street politics, graffiti, Hindi film, fashion and found objects, Burman has confirmed her status as a leading figure among UK Black and Asian artists with her work being exhibited globally.
She has had a number of captivating exhibitions globally and locally, such as Victoria & Albert Museum. She is currently exhibiting at the Welcome Trust and British Council Collection in New Delhi. Her work has also been acquired by the private collection of Lekhar Poddar and Sir Richard Branson amongst others, along with the Tate and Wolverhampton art gallery.
