About

Sukanta Das - Untitled - 36 x 36 inches (unframed size) Acrylic on canvas Inclusive of shipment in roll form. Style : Juxtaposing the mundane with the exotic, Das’ work is usually figurative. His pieces have a surreal quality about them, possibly due to the palette he employs. His acrylics on canvas are moments captured in time, and have a photo-realist quality. His women, though, are highly stylized, with large droopy eyes, long noses and sharp features. Das often places these women in idyllic garden settings giving his work the surreal and dream-like quality. Sukanta Das says, “ I am primarily inspired by the human body and nature. I love to use subtle hues and tones to portray their interdependence and symbiotic relationships. My canvases are a homage to the stories of celestial love and the ethereal co-existence of nature with humans. Mythological representation of this interconnection fabricates a new world of symbolic fantasy that celebrates sublime love.” About the Artist & his works : Born : 1973 in Kolkata.
