She attended Bangalore University from 1976-77, where she studied under Balan Nambiar and then studied Sculpture at the Faculty of Fine Arts, MS University, Baroda. She completed her Bachelors and then her Masters degree in 1985. <br>Her selective participations include `New Indian Art`, Manchester Art Gallery, UK (2002); `Ways of Resisting`, Sahmat, New Delhi (2002); Art Action for Gujarat, art show and raffle, Bangalore (2002); `Century City` Tate Modern, London, UK (2001); `Moving Ideas` Hoopoe Curatorial, Montreal and Vancouver, Canada (2001); Khoj International Residency, New Delhi (2001); Open Circle International Workshop, Mumbai (2000).

She has taught and lectured widely on arts. <br>The artist is particularly known for incorporating popular culture into her work. The artist has adopted various popular personas and ironic roles as a vehicle for examining issues of gender, place and history. The comic aspect of her work carries a particularly sharp edge in her photo-based installations and projections, exposing cultural and gender stereotyping while exploring the complex terrain of contemporary urban life in India. <br>Pushpamala N is the recipient of many honors, including the National Award (1984); the gold medal at the Sixth New Delhi Triennale (1986); the Charles Wallace Trust Fellowship for residency at St. Martin`s School of Art, London (1992-93); the Senior Fellowship, Indian Ministry of Human Resource Development (1995-97). <br>Formerly from Mumbai, she now lives and works in Bangalore. <br><br><br> Pushpamala N
