Arpana Caur was born in New Delhi in 1954. Caur's works include female figures that emerge as symbols of solidarity, confronted by the tragedies of political violence and industrialisation. The repeated motif of clothing in her work both confirms and subverts the traditional picture of women. She draws inspiration from Punjabi literature and Bhakti poetry which contributed to the strains of melancholy, mysticism and devotion that are felt in her work
