Rupy had the honor to share the unique Sikh painting style from the Sikh Kingdoms during the 19th century as well as contemporary Gurmukhi calligraphy at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, CA. The Artist demo and talk were part of the programming in support of the Sikh Art Exhibition "Saints and Kings" running at the museum. It was a moment of pride to bring Sikh heritage to life through art practice at a major museum.
In addition to producing contemporary Sikh art, I'm passionate about researching and writing about old Sikh art. My hope is to make these older works relevant again today. My exposure to these works comes from my artist residency at the Sikh Foundation this year. Through traveling we find ourselves immersed in places with exciting cultures, different types of people and unique ways of living. We collect our travel memories as we pose for selfies, take videos, and write length
