Permindar Kaur was born in 1965 in Nottingham. She studied at Sheffield Polytechnic (BFA) and the Glasgow School of Art (MFA). She lives and works in London.
A British artist of Sikh origin, Kaur explores ideas relating to childhood, innocence and vulnerability, with some references to different religious or historical backgrounds. Kaur’s work addresses notions of sanctuary, safety and comfort yet avoids sentimentality to the point of being unsettling.
