About

Sanjay Bhattacharya - Untitled - 15 x 22 inches (unframed size) Watercolour on Paper ( FRAMED ALL IN DOOR DELIVERED ) Style : Sanjay's first inspiration was the Phantom. Yes, the phantom of those famous Phantom comics. "I used to draw Phantom everywhere, on the walls, on the doors," he says. But Sanjay---- one of the most gifted students of realist painter Bikash Bhattacharya --- has moved quite far from the realms of fantasy. Sanjay's figurative images are quite close to those found in the works of the Dutch realist painters or the French 18th century painters. Either oil paintings or watercolours, what has really inspired most of Sanjay's works are the inner and outer realities evoked by architectural elements. Like old, vacant houses. "They are of great interest to me. They tell me stories of people who lived there, who loved there, or fought there. There is a lot of colour and texture in their decaying walls, if only we took the trouble of seeing them." So, in some of his works, we find dark bedrooms with old style table, dressing table, chairs, part of a four poster, or bedstead with massive, ornately carved head-board set against bright sunlight coming in through open windows. It's not just empty houses that Sanjay has painted. He has also painted lived in houses. He has painted a mother combing her daughters' hair; the family silver locked inside the cupboard or the kitchen with its beautiful pots and pans. A lot of his paintings are of the lower middle class families, who are not really heartbreakingly poor, but almost on the edge. Along with homes and families, Sanjay's work consists of realistic portraiture. Like the exhibition he did on late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi's portraits. There are no larger than life images here. The interiors against which he has painted Gandhi are untelling and cryptic behind their dark brown layers. Besides homes and portraits, Sanjay's paintings are all about Calcutta. His total involvement with the streets of Calcutta comes through on his canvas. There is Calcutta decaying, Calcutta the city of dilapidated palaces of the 19th century rich, Calcutta of the faded British grandeur. About the Artist & his work : Born : 1958 in Kolkata. Education : 1982 - Diploma in Art from Government College of Arts and Crafts, Kolkata. Art Career : After graduation, Sanjay joined the Clarion Ad agency as an illustrator.
