For more than twenty years, visual artist Chila Kumari Burman has worked experimentally making brightly hued genre-defying prints collage, mixed media, paint and photography with a predominantly autobiographical focus. Burman explores the construction of classed, gendered, sexualised and ‘raced’ subjectivities.
Having received a B.A 1st class Hons in Printmaking from Leeds polytechnic and an MA in Fine Art at the prestigious Slade School of Fine Art, Burman generates powerful works of contemporary Asian feminism. Informed by bold colour, form and line with direction from street politics, graffiti, Hindi film, fashion and found objects, the artist has confirmed her status as a leading figure among UK Black and Asian artists with her work being exhibited globally.
As an internationally established artist, Burman has exhibited in countries including India, Pakistan, Syria, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Africa, USA, Canada, Cuba, Spain, France, Poland, Ukraine and Sweden. She is represented by 100 Tonson Gallery in Bangkok and Latitude 28 in New Delhi, and her new e-book Shakti, Sexuality and Bindi Girls by Rina Arya is available now, published by n. paradoxa international feminist arts journal. Her work is currently being shown at the Welcome Trust and the British Council Collection in New Delhi. Public collections include Tate, Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Victoria and Albert museum, British Council collection, Walsall Art Gallery, Welcome Trust and Devi Foundation, in India and it is privately collected by Lekhar Poddar and Sir Richard Branson.
