Chintan Upadhyay was born in Rajasthan. He did his B.F.A. (Painting) and M.F.A. (Painting) from the Faculty of Fine Arts, Baroda. He has held many solo shows including one at Brisbane, Australia.
Upadyay created "eerie images," intended to "hammer an established aesthetics". Effectively, his paintings are themselves "critiques of painterly, established norms." He regularly leaves parts of his canvases unfinished, in order to indicate "my interest in present time." He explains that to him, an unfinished painting suggests the possibility that the artist may return to complete the piece, and thus creates a tension within the work. In each painting, he seeks to instill a sense of movement and possibility.
