ABOUT THE ARTIST
CONTEMPORARY ARTIST EXHIBITING WITH DELHI AND MUMBAI GALLERIES
HE was born on 1949 in Behratpur a village near Kolkatta with education from Rabindra Bharti University, Kolkatta.
HIS collection evidently comes together as a well-drawn narrative, one that is resplendent and extremely enigmatic. This collection evokes a rich cultural ethos and heritage, which of a rich past India possessed. The paintings have an ethereal characteristic. His brush takes recourse to my past life in village Behratpur in Kolkata in almost all my creations. His creations speak of social truths. Here are some instances. A lonely boy from the village finds no friends in the big, bad city of Delhi. Brooding, he remembers the warmth in his hometown. A woman pleading with her man to give her space in his life turns blind, crying. But the man, forever lost in the thought of Lord Krishna, does not pay heed to his family responsibilities. His men are less forceful than his women in his oil works.
The colours the collection uses is so artistically crafted that while it showcases a colourful and bright Diaspora of Indian ethnicity, one cannot escape the illusion it creates on the canvas. The colours are magnificently used almost as a game to create mirages and conjure up hidden images in the minds eyes. The colours definitely accentuate the powerful metaphors excited through the collection, and the ambiguity of the many faceless characters of the narrative.
