about artist

Born in 1935 in Kolkata, the veteran artist studied at Government College of Arts and Crafts in Kolkata and Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts, Paris. His select solo exhibitions have been held by UNESCO, Salles Miro, Paris (2008); Art Alive, New Delhi (2008); Aicon Gallery, New York (2008); Visual Arts Gallery, Indian Habitat Centre, New Delhi (2008, 2006); Pundole Art Gallery, Mumbai (2006); and Retrospective, organized by Apparao Galleries,. Art Musings and Aicon Gallery recently presented a solo show of his works entitled 'Enraptured Gaze'. His characteristic imagery tends to resemble weathered frescos. He depicts his figures in hues, which appear once vivid, and now faded. Through my works I return to my native roots, to my childhood and that transitory world of innocence, he has been quoted as saying. His mythical creatures narrate ancient tales of enchanting worlds.
