Ranajit Sinha is an internationally exhibiting artist based in Ottawa, Canada. He was born and raised in New Delhi, India.
His practice focuses on the centrality of the body within global and local flows of sensation, perception and lived experience. Ranajit’s sculpted paintings cause the viewer to physically engage in the subjective activity of discovery. Through visual representations, his aim is to show the tangibility, the sentient reality of changing identities. His current practice focuses more on the non-physical evolution that highlights the material process of abolishing and renewing one’s identity.
Ranajit received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Delhi College of Art in New Delhi, and his first Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Print Making from Visva Bharati University, Santiniketan in India. During this time, he was awarded with various prestigious awards such as the National Academy Award, All India Fine Arts & Crafts Society (AIFACS), National Research Grant award, to name a few.
He received his second MFA degree in Painting from Central Washington University (CWU), with a teaching assistantship grant.
