Meet The Artist: Nupur Nishith
An Artist based in USA inspired from my native Mithila / Madhubani Art. Growing up in the environment famous for its unique ancient folk art I took up the art early observing my mother, first Phd in History of Mithila Paintings. Even during education and profession in marketing and banking my passion for Mithila art continued through exhibitions and workshops in India. Since moving to US, my explorative nature led to paintings on various surfaces from paper, canvas, cloth, wood, ceramic, terra cotta, glass, aluminum and 3D installations to murals on walls, ceilings, floors, windows etc. Eventually evolved my own distinct style in the contemporary world with traditional art form using modern themes and tools.
A professional art career of six years in my paintings have been awards, exhibited, published at various occasions globally. Art displayed in the collection of likes of Abigail Disney (from Disney family), Dr Harvey Manes and many others, showcased at CBS NY Sunday Morning Show, Asian Art Museum, SFO and Nassau County Museum of Art, NY and various galleries and events, awarded by juror from Museum of Modern Art, NY and many significant others, exhibitions reviewed in Huffington post, The Daily California among others. Featured as Artist and Art activist at various occasions. A pioneer in digital Mithila art, my designs featured on Indian National award-winning movie Mithila Makhaan. An Art ambassador for social causes with Association for Promotion of Creative Learning (APCL), Ekal Vidalayas and other organizations. Board of various Artist groups including former Vice President, Pro Arts, NJ. Speaker at various national and international events on Art and Culture of Mithila, Bihar and India. Curated and organized various art exhibitions and events.
My paintings are developed through some intense observation, exploration, research and experiments within the framework of traditional motifs of Mithila Art. So, every piece has a story behind the scenes.
"Since pandemic COVID19 I am trying to spread awareness and positivity through Mithila art at various webinars, presentations and workshops. Collaborated with Barat Foundation, USA for Animodule “We're all in this together”, I am going to present at Mithila Heritage Festival USA 2021"
It is my great pleasure to participate at Mithila Festival USA 2021 exhibition entitled “Art for SDGs; the Mithila Heritage” organized by Mithila Center, USA going to be held on April 14-17, 2021.
I would like to thank you Mithila Center, USA for this wonderful opportunity to show case my art at such important event. I believe that Mithila Festival USA and art exhibition would not only support and promote artist but also help to preserve and promote Mithila culture heritage globally.
