Natasha Kumar

Born 1976
Art and India are in Natasha Kumar’s genes. On her English side she comes from a long line of established artists: her Indian heritage she traces back to Kashmir and Afghanistan via stories of partition and lost family gold.

She has made her own name as an artist from the age of 17, when, earning a place by right in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition she found her etchings hanging on the same wall as paintings by her grandfather and uncle. Natasha Kumar began with a first class degree in printmaking at Manchester. She studied printmaking and anatomy in Venice and completed her MA in London in 2000, winning the London Printmaking Prize the same year.

She has a dedicated and growing following of collectors. Her work is represented in private and national collections worldwide.
She lives and works in London and Staffordshire when not in India.

Natasha’s work offers a very genuine feel of India.

I am always struck by how vivid her paintings are, and how evocative are her prints.
