Amrit Kaur Singh and Rabindra Kaur Singh are contemporary artists who have become internationally famous. They were born in London to parents from India and their father was a doctor. In their painting the twins use traditional techniques used in Indian miniature painting to produce vibrant, detailed paintings. They sometimes work individually and the subjects of their paintings are influenced by both Asian and Western ideas. Amrit and Rabindra Singh studied Contemporary Western Art at the Liverpool University College of Chester. They have held exhibitions of their art at amongst other places, the Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art and Birmingham City Art Gallery (1999), Leeds City Art Gallery (2001), UCR Sweeney Art Gallery, Riverside Art Museum, California USA (2003) and McMaster Gallery of Fine Art, Hamilton Toronto, Canada (2004). They currently have works on loan to the Smithsonian Institute, Washington.
