Growing up in the spiritually and culturally rich city of Ujjain always had an impact on her creative thought process. In 1986, she started her art journey with a group show at Kalidas Academy in Ujjain. Ritu’s paintings synthesize the traditional and the modern values; the sum total of the spiritual and secular influences that she gathered so far. By adding vibrant textures, created by fabric, she freely changes the orientation to express the gradation of color and illumination.
The beauty in Ritu Chopra’s art is that her physical experiences find resonance in her paintings. She does not adhere to technique and keeps moving to novel forms that appeal to her. With every series that she paints, she introduces the freshness of a raw artist.
She has done 10 Solo and more than 55 Group Exhibitions in India and abroad. She has worked on different subjects and medium. Her style of paintings in the past remained mostly figurative, but now she has ventured into the world of abstraction. Line has not become irrelevant but less structured, the chromatic flow has become harmonious and the strict boundaries of form have evaporated.
