Amrita Chowdhury is currently a Texas-based contemporary artist and writer.
In art, her abstract style merges fluid art and mark-making with ink detailing. It explores the beauty of wabi-sabi, and tries to hit the spot where discomfort meets unfinishedness. Her work is heavily inspired by travel, the people she meets when she travels, the daily mundane and the artificial built environment that we have created. It will always be true to colour, imperfection and incompletion. Her works have been exhibited in shows in Mumbai (New & Wanting, 2014), Kolkata (Expressions, 2018), and London (The Annual Soho Contemporary Art Show, 2010).
Amrita is, by training, an Architect with a Masters Degree in Architecture from The University of Nottingham, UK. She has worked with architectural firms in Mumbai (VM & Associates), London (BDP), Kolkata (Agrawal & Agrawal) and Paris.
As a writer, she has worked as a commissioned editor and book designer with publishing houses in UK and India, which has led her to work on her own books, which are currently works in progress. She has written fiction pieces for Bridge Eight and Hippocampus Magazine. Her non-fiction pieces have appeared in publications like The Writing Cooperative, Huffington Post, Tripoto, The Bangalore Mirror, Honest Cooking, Grafitti and TechinAsia.
