Sutanu PanigrahiSutanu Panigrahi’s paintings are slices of life; an introspective glimpse into a sight seen too many times before but never quite noticed. Seeking inspiration from the works of Colombian writer, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Panigrahi fuses a touch of magic with the mundane which results in the creation of a liminal space that adheres as well as transgresses rules.
Sunil YawalikarA teacher by profession, Sunil Yawalikar has been inspired by his students. His close ties to his rural background find overt manifestation in his paintings which uphold how lasting an effect our childhood has on us. The inspiration behind exploring the fleeting pleasures of a young age, lies in humanity’s tendency to suppress these finer pleasures of life and seek more physical luxuries. The repression of the happy memories of childhood under the burdens of adulthood is a leitmotif in his works.

Sajal MitraSajal K. Mitra uses the difficult and challenging medium of water colour, painting what he sees and how it feels. Proficiently done water colours are unfailingly pleasing yet Sajal surpasses pleasure to evince wonder and admiration in the viewer. They are so real one marvels how he painted so much rain with such a heavy downpour! One can almost feel the wet air. Each of his works just adds and fortifies the charm of sensitive and competent water colour, explaining his belief that “a work of art always makes people rediscover how beautiful the world is with all its imperfections.”

Raj MajiArt is no more a separate entity than the being inside who always wants to be in the creative joy of eternal bliss. I see a light on an infinite canvas beyond the ocean of emotions of various colors and am taking a voyage towards it. I hear the whisper of the wind and the ripple of the waves; feel the micro droplets on my heart while gaze only on the infinitude of the canvas where one can paint only through the waves of creative joy.

Pradip SauIt is the search for what can atleast partly be attained by being detached from all the material aspects is at the centre of Pradip’s paintings. On one hand, man tries to maintain his existence by attaching himself to the material aspects of life. On the other hand, he ignores his mere physical existence only to attain something beyond his material longings. All Pradip’s art focusses on this dichotomy of human existence.

Biswajit DasCuriosity for visual engagement is the driving force of Biswajit’s work. He mostly loves to work on gestures through portraits and figurative representation. He is working on sound and its impact on human life through gestural reactions. He prefers his canvas to express the space with variety of elements like colours, lines, textures and contours to showcase the wide possibilities of the sound (in its various forms, noise, howl, honk, tinkle etc.) to have an impact on us. He takes sound, as an inspiration, as he feels it has great strength as silence to move us psychologically. This particular quality would help both him and the viewers to absorb his conceptual compositions.
