Born in 1965, Paresh Maity won the Padma Bushn for his contribution to the art field in 2014. In a short time, he has had 79 sols shows in India and abroad.
"Water-colours are my heart & soul" says Paresh Maity who over a period of the last 20 years has achieved proficiency in the medium a few can claim. Whatever surface the artist may choose, be it paper, canvas or any other medium, he creates magic with his vibrant colours and geometricized forms.
The sand dunes of Rajasthan, the backwaters of Kerala, the canals of Venice, to the lake of Geneva, echo with the passion of Paresh. The artist has also had a brief interaction with abstract, freeing him from the limitations of his landscapes.
