In the course of her artistic career, Anupam Sud created an important series that drew parallels between powerful goddesses and celestial creatures in traditional Hindu iconography and the modern woman. She was also resting her artistic vision on nudes, highlighting through her visual lens the vulnerability and a realness in her heroines. In the interim, the artist turned towards traditional Indian art, deriving, for instance, through the Basohli school of miniature painting, a juxtaposition where a contemporary idiom could fit in.
