Born and raised in Nainital, Uttarakhand, Sujan Biswas's work imbibes and embraces worship of the environment. The exhibition will be held from January 23 to 29 at Jehangir Art Gallery, 161-B, M.G. Road, Kala Ghoda, Mumbai 400001. Daily from 11 am to 7 pm.
His works see the identity of the trees merge with the identity of the limbs and body parts of the human being to create an unconquerable alliance of strong forces, signaling that in the current scenario of ecological ruin, it is in need of critical restoration.
The intensity of the colours and density of the lines theatrically demonstrate the disconcerting gravity of the situation at hand.
Rooted in a humble setting, Biswas's father was a subsidiary farmer in Shaktigarh, near Haldwani, whilst his mother boasted of her love for trees by planting them.
Deeply imbibed and embraced, this inheritance of worship of the environment only helped intensify his awareness and compassion for the analogous plant world.
Biswas's canvases speak a language that could stir your soul, whilst the nature resounds cordially in joyous colours; they display an argot solely for the eyes.
Biswas's paintings propagate an environment where the relation between life and nature holistically comes into a singular being, continually emphasizing a superior transcendental implication, wherein all the elements of nature come together to play a grander role in a larger scheme of things.
The artist's works respire an originality, be it the inhabitants of the canvas, the shape of trees, the strokes of his brushes, the fine lines of the pen, the ink minutiae, the colour palette even the hue and the shade.
The paintings see the identity of the trees merge with the identity of the limbs and body parts of the human being to create an
