Nikhil Chopra

Nikhil Chopra

Nikhil Chopra’s artistic practice ranges between live art, theatre, painting, photography, sculpture, and installation. His performances, in large part improvised, dwell on issues such as identity, the role of autobiography, the pose, and self-portraiture, reflecting on the process of transformation and the part played by the duration of each performance.


Born in Kolkata in 1974, Chopra lives and works in Goa and has exhibited and performed globally since 2005. He is represented by Galleria Continua, San Gimignano/Beijing/Les Moulins/Habana. Composer of the songs in the film is Ranjit Arapurkal.

Art Dubai Portraits is a film series that provides a short perspective into the lives and workspaces of artists that are connected to the fair through its programming or participating galleries. The Art Dubai Portraits are produced in collaboration with Forward James Filmmakers.
