About me.


I was born and brought up in a baronial family of the north Bengal. According to the royal protocol and manner, I had very limited permission to interact with common children and therefore my childhood spent in loneliness. To avoid it, I got color pencils, crayons and drawing sheets to play.  Behind the royal flamboyance, I had a lot of curiosity which I tried to put down on the drawing sheet. That childish game is now converted into a meaningful craft of my life. I took admission in the Ramakrishna mission primary school in Calcutta and after a few years, I get back again to our own high school founded by one of the ancestors and then college. After obtaining the graduation, I got the chance to admit in art college of Calcutta. In the final year of art college, my father expired and within a few years, I bounded to leave our ancestor's palace forever due to the several problems. Presently, I am living in my own house and continuing painting in my studio.

 

My Statement

 

My painting is so fluent that I am satisfied with revealing myself and the world around me. In the language of color, my painting trumps up the joy of human life and make visual poetry on canvas. Uses of contrary color in painting produce the delights of living. The blank white space came as the symbol of eternity that respectively bears a calmness. It seems to be indicating something around the past experience of my spiritual life, unconsciously.  Having affection for human life, it's an endless journey of mine to the infinity.

 

From the structural perspective, my painting based on synthetic cubism - which later becomes standard in Indian style. I texturized my painting especially that indicates the home-craft of rural Bengal that is also very near to the texture of jute. It's a uniqueness that makes my painting stand out of others. Throughout the game of reconstruction of the form, I reached to that imaginative world whose bless helps to become eloquent my canvas. Rather than passing in the Indian two-dimensional trend, the tenderness of light and shadow brings my thoughts back to life. The use of the line shows the eternal idea of the Indian drawing which I painted as I like. From the grammatical perspective, my painting dominates the Indian custom, and in the framework of the ritualized Indian grammar, I configured the western ideas. The flows of two different visions come into the key-point that help me to plan my composition. The masterpieces of the ancestor Indian artists have inspired me to move forward.

 

The way of life comes with several turns. Sometimes those are even dangerous and incomprehensible. Yet we have to find out the survival supply within our limits to have the address of joy. In my painting, I find the stuff of surviving as well as the meaning of my living that will inspire others to take a few more time from God to have the flavor of human life.
