Currently based in Guwahati, India

Devadeep Gupta is a visual artist and filmmaker based out of Guwahati, Assam. His practice lies in the mutuality of lens-based media, installations, collaborative performances knit together through concurrent conceptual narratives. Devadeep graduated with a Master’s degree in Public Arts and New Artistic Strategies from Bauhaus University, Germany. Since his earliest engagements in academic and professional spaces as a Visual Practitioner, he has been drawn towards work that engages communities through values of transparency and empathy. Through his practice, he reflects his position on the socio-cultural landscapes of his work. Apart from his personal art-making, he directs his efforts towards creating an avenue in the North-East India through

Northeast Lightbox (NELB, a collective co-founded by him and Hrishikesh Chowdhury, a social worker from Assam), that can facilitate more accessibility towards visual art, while cultivating an inclusive space of dialogue and exchange for art-makers and practitioners along with generating new audiences.
