The Painting “Kolkata identity” is based on typical Kolkata rickshaw pullers and there life.

The open Door and the dark space inside it are there suffering, struggle and the darkness inside their sole. The ray of light is the hope in their life that they expect will come some day.

I’ve not undergone any formal training in Art but gained experience first from my Father Late Mohd Ibrahim Khan, a Banner Painter. Subsequently, under the able tutelage of renowned Artist Late Manjit Bawa (Guru ji - My Mentor in Art) Bawa took much care to train me to use brush and pastels on a variety of subjects, also guided me to savour the beauty and nuances of Texture. Then, as an initial step my Guru guided me through a maze of depictable visuals scattered over the all too familiar places of Delhi. He asked me to draw inspiration from real life. Deferential to my master’s academic style of figuration, I soon convinced my guru of deft brushmanship and ability to create naturalistic human and animal forms, avoiding explicit linear delineation, while projecting solid masses. I chose to see the ordinary things and scenes that make up for our everyday life.

H R Das comes across as a director more than artist, putting forth a visual display of raw emotions and power.
The beast within! That is the thought that comes to mind when one is confronted with H.R. Das's bulls. There is an empathy that he evokes in the viewer when faced with his canvases. They exude the power, pride and heart of the beast that is a part of us all.
H.R. Das captures the essence of village life through his amazing cattle. His, bulls and cows don't just exist but pulsate with energy. Whether yoked or free they effortlessly express the sheer strength and beauty of the beast. H R Das has taken the bull and made it his own, one cannot dispute the fact that he has a distinctly unique style of portraying this magnificent animal that is so rooted in the Indian culture and psyche. In fact, some may say that he has taken a commonplace animal and given it a heroic status in the manner that it takes on an almost human persona. One can relate to the beast's agony, its joy of life, its anger and one can fear it as well.

Janavi M Folmsbee has moved between countries and cities to find her own space in this world and to hunt for the universal and global connection amongst us. After crossing continents, this hunt has propelled her to continue her search in an element that physically connects us all – water. She is strongly influenced by marine life, drawing abundant inspiration from her experiences with scuba diving expeditions.
In her interdisciplinary work, Folmsbee creates ethereal, intricate shapes, which she calls characters, that are meant to invite the public into something very private. Her paintings intend to take the viewer into the work’s moment of origin. These characters she conceptually conceives of live in their own world and space, but somehow also exist in ours. Typically, a collection of four or five of her works is installed together to tell a story, transforming the space into her version of an unreal world for the viewer to be injected into. The works allow the viewer to better understand the hardships of our oceans and the majestic creatures it holds. She has faith that with art, awareness, and beauty we as humans are capable of doing much more for our oceans and our environment.
Painting is nothing else but the best way to show our way of thinking in front of the whole world.

Geometry, both as a mode of apprehending natural phenomena, and abstracting from it, has played an important role in all traditions of art. Geometry has also served a transcendental role in so far as the artist carries the belief that the universe and the human mind alike share the sense of order and that the sense of order and that the artist carries the belief that the artist is changed with the function of eliminating the self and the capricious forms of nature to reveal this identity. Since then there have been several uses of geometry in art but on the whole a diminishing of its purpose metaphysical and social alike. It is not easy to make a distinction between the form making impulse we have been speaking about and mere formalism but it is not impossible to distinguish between the form making impulse .We have been speaking about and mere formalism but it is not impossible to distinguish between an ascetic approach to the problem of form and that of a decorator.

Umakant has been working on the concepts and figures of the Buddha since last many years. Gnosis / Bhikus is one further step in his creation of thought involving Buddha and Buddhism. . Here he directly paints the representatives of the Buddha- the Monks. Along with Dalai Lama, there are novice monks. We find that these novice monks’ expressions are not serene and meditative but seem to be at the infantile stage of becoming Monks, they have childish innocence on their face. They are allowed to explore their physical world and with the aid of Buddhist preaching they slowly develop self awareness.
Process of creativity is like these novice monks, a process of becoming self aware and breaking free from of influence from others. Without imposing grueling knowledge and letting them be of their age; this natural way of growing and side-by-side acquiring knowledge in a systematic way would turn them into serene and self-controlled Monks.

My skin is my canvas, The lines on my skin painting me something new keeping me chained here holding still my changing hues Vibrant tones to match the conflict not lasting, not staying the same like a reflection of beings fragile, leaving in the next mists way. It peeks out from my shirt wanting to be free nothing more than a scribble but it is still I. A door to where they see feel my essence, warm and needy so different from the shell scathing and prickly.
