Laura Chakravorty

Oils/Acrylic, UNTAPPED Emerging Artists, Booth U-16

Laura Chakravorty is an English-born painter, living and working in Toronto, Canada. She recently moved to Canada from London, England, where she studied and pursued a career in the fashion industry. Quite early on in tailoring classes, Chakravorty realised that it was not the structure of the materials that fascinated her, but the structure of the naked human physique itself. After this realisation Chakravorty shifted from fashion to painting, focussing on the human form, painting from an up-close, personal yet modern perspective. This is evident in her latest works, where the subject’s personality and emotion is exhibited not via the face as is typical, but via the manipulation of the body; in her current series, focusing primarily on the feet.
