Studied from prestigious Govt. College of Arts & Crafts, Kolkata, I have always been fascinated by the green land and its rich traditional and cultural surroundings.
Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the painter’s soul and my background facilitates me to create something traditional yet modern out of Indian Mythology. I have painted on wide range of subjects in diverse mediums such as acrylic, oil, water colors, oil pastels, charcoal & mixed medium. My art is as realistic as it is abstract, the vibrant colors, the bold fluidity of distinctive strokes all endeavor to capture the complexity of traditionalism with the pulsating energy of modernism. Realism always attracts because it is beautiful but the abstract creates a feeling of curiosity to explore for more. All my works show a unique amalgamation of reality and abstract.
I have also worked as an Animator for the India’s first Animation Serial “Gayab Aaya” for Doordarshan – DD1, several ad films and cartoon films for Jain TV and others. Worked as Creative Designer and illustrator for Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, UNICEF, WWF, PTI, Business Today, ICEF (Indian Canada Environment Faculty) and as creative illustrator for famous writer Ruskin Bond. I have completed several murals including one at Dehradun. Lives and works in Delhi.
