Shampa Sircar Das was born in 1970, Delhi. In 1993 she graduated in BFA painting from College of Art, Delhi and did her Masters in painting from Jamia Milia Islamia. In her works, Shampa uses a synthesis of philosophy, aesthetics and technique to create her own language on the canvas. Symbols fascinate her, as they have a language of their own and encompass the power of silence within them. The forms and elements are an integral part of the space where sometimes they cross the threshold; the boundaries dissolve and become part of the matrix.
