“For years, I woke up at midnight and started painting impromptu. I still find that very gratifying.” – Meet Kishore Pratim Biswas, an Indian contemporary artist.
Kishore’s 15-year journey in the modern contemporary art movement has strengthened his unconventional thought process and influenced his painting style.
Born in Kolkata, 42-year-old Kishore has been passionate about art since childhood. After graduating in Fine Arts from the Government College of Art & Craft, Kolkata, in 1996, Kishore spent some struggling years in his hometown and moved to Mumbai in 2009.
Today, Kishore has his studio in Mumbai.
Kishore started by primarily painting in watercolours. But his talent knew no bounds. Gradually, he switched to painting acrylic paintings.
Today, he stands on a solid intellectual platform, and his work reflects a unique streak where colour is of great importance, and form is only incidental. He uses the canvas’s texture and experimental methods to add the finishing touch to his meticulous paintings. Kishore is also an expert in acrylic, oil, watercolour, mixed media, charcoal, and soft pastels.
For a long time, Kishore has practised as a junior artist under the guidance of Bikash Bhattacharya, Sunil Das, Samir Mondal, Ganash Halui, Ashok Bhaumik, and other renowned artists. You will lose yourself in the beauty of colours inspired by the likes of William Turner, Rembrandt, Picasso, Van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and Matisse.
Kishore organised his solo exhibition in Kolkata in 1996. In 1997, he displayed his work at several group shows around the country. Even though Kishore has a long way to go, his paintings are slowly making their way into the homes of collectors of modern Indian art.
His name is also getting popular among Indian modern contemporary artists.
