Vanita Gupta graduated from L.S. Raheja School of Art in with a degree in painting, but her art cannot be confined within categories. Although she began as a painter, her concerns with coordination of movement and balance, juxtaposing existence and non-existence, empty vacuums and solid spaces have led to her current explorations in sculptural work and installations. Vanita has been widely exhibiting her work nationally and internationally.
