About

Prakash Karmakar - Untitled - 29 x 19 inches ( unframed size ) Pastel on Board Inclusive of shipment in roll form. This Painting of a Blatantly Nude and Somewhat Sensous Woman wrapped in an Indian Green Colour Saree with her Mass of Long Hair Flowing Down her Back is a typical of the Indian Bengal Master artist Prakash Karmakar. Prakash Karmakar came from a prominent family and his Father Prahalad Karmakar was a very big artist. However all his works were burnt in the fire. Style : Legendary master artist Lt. Prokash Karmakar from Bengal was solely responsible for the Bengal Movement of Art. His father Lt. Prahalad Karmakar was a very famous legendary artist ; but unfortunately all his paintings got burned in the riot. Prokash Karmakar led a very tough life , often sleeping on the platforms of the railway stations of Bengal. Later he worked in the textile line and simultaneously painted and exhibited his works on his own strength , until he got huge acclaim and success . 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. About the Artist and his work : Born : Prakash Karmakar was born (1933-2014) in Calcutta. Education : Govt. college of Art & craft, Kolkata Prokash Karmakar 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.
