Jayashree Chakravarty, born in 1956 in Khoai, Tripura, studied at several renowned art institutions including the Kala Bhavan, Viswa Bharati University, Santiniketan; Faculty of Fine Arts, M.S. University, Baroda, and Ecole d' Art, Aix-en-Provence, France. Her studious stint at these institutes shaped her instinct for art, apart from helping her in creating a unique style of painting and artistic sensibilities. Among her recent noteworthy shows are ‘In The Very Face of The Time’, Kolkata (2006); ‘Where the Sand meets the Sky’, Bodhi Art, New York (2007); and ‘New Narratives: Contemporary Art from India’ Cultural Center, Chicago (2007). For this sensitive artist, painting is a form of meditation – a journey back to the Self. Her images give an expression to her inner thoughts.
