Pragyan Kranti Kalita
As an artist he has been always fascinated by beauty in diverse facial expressions and how they reflect countless emotions. As a result most of his creations revolve around human face and figures in monochrome to create an impression of visual harmony. Through realism in his works he infuses with unique sensitivity and inner vision that portray a deep expression to bring life on canvas.
Being a self-taught artist he developed a strong interest in art in his student life and started his journey with genuine effort to capture the essence of life in common people and was fascinated by the beauty of nature, culture and human emotions in an unadulterated mode. Art for him offers way to capture and express moments from day to day life and sketching is like meditation to him where he stretches his mind and reflects it on canvas.
In future he desires to continue devoting his time to practice art in different forms to achieve even more realistic works to capture myriad human expressions. He is also planning to raise a charitable fund for the underprivileged through auction of his artworks in future.
