Rupy C. Tut is a painter dissecting historical and contemporary displacement narratives around identity, belonging, and gender. As a descendant of refugees and a first generation immigrant, Rupy’s family narrative of movement, loss, and resilience is foundational to her creative inquiries. Her work engages in strict practice of traditional materials and methodology associated with traditional Indian painting as she continues to add contemporary images and characters to a centuries old visual language.

​Rupy lives in Oakland with her husband, daughter and twin boys.
