Thukral & Tagra Biography

Thukral and Tagra have been working collaboratively since 2004. Their inspiration begins with the reality of old values mixed with their ideas of modern times in the Punjabi culture of Northern India. These versatile artists play on the refined symbolism between advertising, branding, and domestic retail through painting, sculpture, installation and video. Thukral & Tagra project the visual culture of young Indian dreams and aspirations today.
