About

Paresh Maity - Untitled - 16 x 16 inches (unframed size) Oil, Acrylic & Mixed Media on Board Style : Paresh Maity, a graduate from the Govt. College of Arts Kolkata has been a master figurative artist. Often in his figurative works the contextual setting is neglected and the focus is on the figures, specifically the faces, with their myriad expressions, closely cropped and juxtaposed with their surroundings. The colours are most often vibrant and dazzle the viewer. The stylized, simplified figures have a story of their own, transporting one to an exotic land. Virtuosity of medium is not the message the spirit behind the man and his talent are. It has taken a long time for Paresh Maity to reach where he is, "the execution of the work itself may take little time, but to get there it has taken me 20 years". About the Artist & his work : Born : 1965 in Tamluk, West Bengal. Education : B.F.A. Government College of Art and Craft, Kolkata M.F.A. College of Art, New Delhi. Art Career : While in school he made clay images of gods and goddesses and sold them to earn money for his education. He started painting watercolours of river scenes while still at school and then then oil painting thereafter. Paresh's adventurous, experimental personality has prodded him to explore in all mediums – drawings, watercolours, oils, mixed media, installation and sculptures, photography and filmmaking. Paresh's uniqueness lies in his rediscovering the charm, flavor and magic of India in his paintings. Rajasthan has been the human inspiration behind his work, Shantiniketan the spirituality of mind, body and soul, in Agra he visualized the beauty of Taj, in Ajanta-Ellora he recreated the amazing Buddhist frescoes, in his magical series on Kerala he captured the destination in its pristine colours to the serene ghats of Varanasi and the Himalayan heights of Himachal Pradesh. He has done series of works on almost all facets and destinations of India and then across the seas to London, Venice, China and Japan. He has painted them all.
