About

Prakash Karmakar Title : Beach series Size : 8 x 7.5 inches (unframed size) Mixed media on paper Inclusive of shipment in a roll form. About the Artist and his work : (1933 – 24 February 2014) was a preeminent Indian artist from Kolkata, West Bengal. His work is in the permanent collection of a number of museums and galleries throughout India, including the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi and he is the recipient of numerous awards.Karmakar is best known for his landscapes and nudes, which are generally painted in vibrant colors with bold lines and intricate textures. His paintings reflect his perception and interpretation of nature (both orderly and chaotic), life (both rural and urban), and form (from soft to sharp), without reference to religion. He is one of the greatest Bengal Artists and was a Pillar of the Bengal Movement of Art . Education : Govt. college of Art & craft, Kolkata Prakash Karmarkar came from an artistic family; his father was a renowned artist of his time. Unfortunately, all of his father's paintings were destroyed in the Hindu Muslim riots in the 1940s, which also ruined his family. By 1949, both his parents had passed away, forcing him to abandon his studies at the Government College of Arts and Crafts, Kolkata. He joined the army for two years and then quit to work as a graphic design manager for a medical firm in Kolkata. Virtually penniless and desperate for a break, in 1956, he held a street exhibition, the first in the city, hanging his works along a corner. Selected Exhibitions : 2008 - 'Hues of Bengal',Janues Art Gallery 2008 - 'Art from Bengal',Art Elements Gallery,New Delhi 2008 - ‘The Artecurate ‘, Mumbai Art Festival. 2007 - 'Signatures Images',Gallery Kolkata,Kolkata 2007 - ‘Uninterrupted Journeys’, Nitanjali Art Gallery,New Delhi 2007 - ‘Tales of Textures’, Art Elements Gallery,New Delhi 2006 - ‘Drawing show an act of Art –II’,Priyasri Art Gallery,Mumbai 2006 - 'Frames & Beyond',Neheru Center,Mumbai 1968-65-67 - National Art Exhibition, at Lalit Kala Academy, New Delhi Awards : 2000 - He was a recipient of Abinendra Puraskar Award 1976 - Awards from Biria Academy of Art and Culture, Kolkata 1970 - Rabindra Bharati University, Kolkata. 1969-70 - Fellowship for Study in France. Style : Prakash Karmakar is considered a revolutionary in the sense that he doesn't exhibit in art galleries. All through his artistic career he has always exhibited on street corners because he did not want his paintings to be imprisoned within four walls. Most of his earlier artworks capture remembrances from the past - some of them are very personal, and some are from the darkest moments of human history. More recently he has painted landscapes, depicting lush tropical vegetation, hills and valleys, seascapes and mangroves in their wild diversity – which have made him even more popular with art galleries. Large fish-shaped eyes are assets of Prakash Karmakar females by which he is often recalled. More so because his female are rendered askew with voluptuous curves, drunken stare and sometimes wantonly explicit erotic gestures. At one time, quite early in his life his demonic damsels, femmes’ fatales, or nudes with fleshy shapes of sensual bulge or dismembered limbs or focused genitalia became his signature images. His landscapes too with their piquant painterly refashioning of natural forms and by sheer force of their varied recurrence are currently a fresh subject-index of his style.
