Samir Sarkar
Cow Trainers, Acrylic on Stripped Board, Red by Contemporary Artist "In Stock"



Samir Sarkar - Untitled - 15 x 11 inches (unframed size) Acrylic on Stripped Board. Style : He says, “All my paintings have people wearing some headgear that has a face painted on them. This depicts the double-faced nature of people. Like we see in most profession where one wears uniform, like a policeman, a nurse, an army personnel or the Pope. One wears headgear to go with it as well. To me it is the depiction of the fact that we always wear a face that is different from the real one we have. It is like a face we have to put up to suit the personality we want to project which is always different from the real one.” For the past 25 years, acrylic color has been the main medium for his paintings. After doing the line drawing on paper or canvas, a layer of acrylic is used like tempera on it. Then slowly the subjects and people are given shape using more layers of color. Since I use fast colour, it gives a definite brightness to the figures. My figures have a definite inspiration from Egyptian paintings, thus the figures are drawn in the same form, the cloths that they wear have long lines making them look taller and in a way Egyptian. Most of my paintings are of 42½X48½ size which takes about 100 hours. His paintings, in a way are people he lives with. They give him inspiration to produce more, to experiment more and thus to create his own world with them. About the Artist & his works : Born : 1969 in Agra.
