Born in Trichy, India on 25/07/1975
Suchi Chidambaram is a painter, born and raised in Southern India. She moved to London in 1998 and works from her studio in West London. Mainly self-taught, her work focuses on narrating her experience of a place and its people through rapid palette knife marks using oil paints. Her interpretations are not painted in situ but from memory, allowing fragments of visual data to mingle with her subjective and emotional responses. The resulting work varies between figuration and abstraction.
Suchi has been an ACAVA artist since 2008. She held her first solo exhibition at the Nehru Centre, London in 2006 and has since participated in numerous exhibitions internationally, including India, Italy, Bahrain, UAE, Oman and England.
