What's Happening

An eminent figure in India's art scene, and a name to reckon with in Bengal's art mileu, artist Shuvaprasanna Bhattacharya is back after almost a decade (eight years to be precise) with a solo exhibition at Art Exposure gallery. Though a month-long exhibition, we paid our visit on day one itself (lest we missed out on any that gets sold) and we were floored by the collection on display!

Art enthusiasts, collectors or noobs, this show is a must attend to get a glimpse of fabulous artworks (paintings and installations) and a new series that the artist has developed. Moving away from his usual large canvases, Shuvaprasanna built this show on small formats and have indulged in mixed media (acrylic, charcoal and special ink) to bring the artworks alive.

Adding to his most prominent motifs of the crow and pigeon are the cat, dog and owl that takes over his canvases. The mime collection, in particular, (part of the entire range on display) depicting twisted bodies, contorted facial expressions and bizarre gestures kept us glued on spot as we realised how the painter has explored the inner human mindscape and social conventions through the figures! Mind blown, totally!

How's The Venue
