Subhendu Sarkar (b. 1977) is from Kolkata.
Subhendu has completed his Bachelor in Visual Arts from the Government College
of Art and Craft, Kolkata in 2001. His Paintings had been exhibited in
different shows previously. Apart from that, exhibitions were organized with a
few artists of eminence. He has been awarded National Scholarship from the Ministry of Culture.
Subhendu looks at the life as an endless stream of images and ecstacy.
Sometimes those are associated with nature, and sometimes his thoughts plunge
into abstraction. In his belief, life is also a stream of melancholy and
dreams, where the pain for existence can be narrated as a very close phenomenon
to pleasure. Beauty haunts the mind and life becomes an exclusive quest for
art. Sometimes mind looks forward with a leap from mundaneness of day by day
existence. It transcends the limits of lights and shadows, objects and its
shadows or co-existence and solitude. Here lies Subhendu's craft, visually
abstract but at the same time concrete with bold lines, wash technique or with
the grammarless absurdity.
