A solo painting exhibition titled The Indian Circus by artist Biswajit Das celebrating the diversity in Indian subcontinent was inaugurated by eminent painter Siddharth Sengupta at the Academy of Fine Arts.
“I have always tried to explore the corners of India with the unique style of observation coupled with pragmatic thinking. My paintings are not merely paintings, but they also raise many questions. Religions have and always will been an important part of our society. We cannot ignore it. But it has been found that religion has been often misused and this causes huge tension among the people in such a diverse country” said Biswajit Das. The paintings in the collection are all colored mainly in bright colors like blue, yellow and pink. The artist highlighted on the fact that he has a fetish for bright colors. This is the reason why he has selected such colors for the paintings.
The artist who has done exhibitions in Delhi and other places was however excited to organize his solo exhibition at the Academy of Fine Arts. “I feel honored and excited to organize my painting exhibition at Academy. This is a dream come true for me. With so many people coming to see the paintings, I hope my work will also get noticed and appreciated”. Biswajit Das also stressed that his paintings were nothing simple and that one will have to notice it intently to grasp the meaning properly.
The paintings at the exhibition are not only for display but they can also be bought. The price range of the paintings are between Rs. 25000 to Rs 1,50,000.
The exhibition will continue till the 8th of September.
