Mukta Gupta

About Me:

Mukta was born in a small town in state of Haryana, India, at the border of the northwestern desert state of Rajasthan. At an early age, the vibrant colors and sweet melodies of nature and nomadic gypsies, called Banjaras, influenced her inner being and outer world. Her own Banjara existence yearned for stability, at least in her inner being, which is nonexistent in the outer world for obvious reasons of inherent uncertainty, being the very nature of our physical material world that we are made of.

Her Art was born out of the need to create symmetry out of asymmetry, harmony out of disharmony and order out of chaos in the explosively violent world where life itself has become an industrial commodity to satisfy the lust of the consumer, capitalistic world overpowered by the greed, anger and fear, created by the survival instinct of our reptilian brains. Her art is an effort to perceive and recreate higher dimensions of our spiritual world that is lost in the mist of lower dimensions of materialistic individuality (humanity), which is exploding like a cancer since it tries to engulf everything in its way, including itself.

Maybe this effort would reach out to the depths of compassion and understanding of the human spirit that is searching for itself so it can heal and grow again and create a world that is full of awe-inspiring beauty and laughter.

T present she is teaching Chemistry and Biochemistry as an adjunct faculty at Hawaii Pacific University.
