Navjot Altaf was born in 1949 in Meerut and got her diploma from the Sir J. J. School of Art in 1972. She has held several solo exhibitions including an installation show with paintings, screen printers, films and music called’ Links Destroyed and Rediscovered’ in Mumbai in 1994. She has exhibited in many international shows including the first international Biennale of Prints, from Sao Paulo to London. In Navjot’s work political realism is re-defined to locate her own subjectivity within the warp and woof of the human condition. In doing so she makes many crossovers to the woman’s terrain, the confined and often suppressed feminine situations. The technical virtuosity she brings to her work has of late been extended to installations and site-specific creations. Navjot lives and works in Mumbai.
