Arunima Choudhury was born in 1950. After completing her early education in Kolkata, she obtained her Diploma in Fine Arts from the Indian College of Arts and Draftsmanship in Kolkata. She started her professional career as an art and design teacher in Patha Bhawan, a leading school in Kolkata. Working primarily with vegetable colours, acrylics and botanic dyes on handmade papers, she is known for her works depicting the languid world of nature and human being, their intimacy and coexistence. Arunima embodies nature in the shape of women. The presence of feminine figures strengthens her painting absolutely wonderfully. She has participated in several important group exhibitions such as Kolkata: Run in the Alley curated by Praneet Soi and Manuel Klappe at Marres (Netherlands, 2022), Feminine Facets at Emami Art (Kolkata, 2021), Constellations, Emami Art (Kolkata, 2021); Hart Gallery, Beijing, China; Chitrakoot Art Gallery, Kolkata; among others. She is the subject of the solo shows The Dark Edge of Green, curated by Ms. Nancy Adajania at Emami Art (Kolkata 2022), Khela at Seagull Foundation of the Arts and Nature as I See at Emami Art, both in Kolkata. Arunima Choudhury lives and works in Kolkata.
