Born 1982 in West Bengal, India
“Knowing me is knowing nothingness – knowing the truth is knowing the real”.
Creativity lies below the level of consciousness. True feeling, to me is something that is spontaneous. I prefer to use organic flows and spontaneous spaces to express my colorful world of different depths, textures, volumes with various tones & perspectives.
Exploring the world of different sounds around me through jottings was the way I stepped into my world of fine art practice. Then with the time I’ve started observing them carefully.
Curiosity for visual engagement is the driving force in my work.
The city life is my university. I find all the themes of my art-life – love, pleasure, anger, pain and compassion – played out there in full volume in various Forms, gestures, materials and concepts- this is how my creative process develops into works that are characterized by the consistent mediation of different means of expression. Particular emphasis has been given to the element of gesture past few years. As I developed a technique of ‘metamorphosis’, which allowed me to create compositional narrative within the representational element, the performance factor of gesture through which my aesthetic develops. I want my subjects of paintings to be real, not only in their physical appearances, but also, they have a deep psychological impact on viewers.
My vision is filled with the strong colours, flashes of lights and depths of shadows, airs of my birthplace and smells from the depth of my past and present, dreams of my future. These act as a continuous resource of concepts to my composition.
My work has been exhibited and collected nationally and internationally for over a decade now.
