About

Shyamal Dutta Ray - Untitled - 10 x 12 inches (unframed size) Watercolour on Paper, 1994 Style : The poignant imagery in Shyamal Dutta Ray’s paintings stem from his personal experiences and his canvases reflect his attempts to render the complex visual world around him. Most of Ray’s work reflects the city life of Calcutta, with its happiness and sorrow, struggle and strife, poverty and hope. The works also exhibit a sense of irony, surrealism and awareness of a disintegrating society. About the Artist and his work : Born : Ranchi, Bihar in 1934. Education : He graduated from the Government College of Art and Craft in 1955. Career : Dutta Roy worked as art teacher at Jagadbhandu Institution in Calcutta. Art Career : Regarded as a master watercolourist, Ray is also a founding member of the Society of Contemporary Artists, an artists’ collective, that sought to introduce innovativeness into the art world of the 1960s. Shyamal Dutta Ray’s body of work constitutes a major turning point in the history of the Bengal school of art. Ray is credited with adding depth and intensity to the medium of watercolours, at a time when the Bengal school of Art traditionally used light and watery colours. His melancholic and pensive works reflect the contradictions of life around him.
