“What I remember that last time I went to sketch the steam engines at Bandel Locomotives Workshop (West Bengal, India) in 1992. The day was sad, to hear that the steam locomotives was obsoleted in India. Those were disassembled and dispatched to go in museum and for scrap. After that I didn’t do any live sketch of the engine in my SCRIBBLE BOOK”. says Biswas… That scribble books is only the source, where had the old collections of 70’s Indian steam locomotives
.Last 26 years, a long time Kishore is working on the theme of nostalgia. 2014 in Mumbai he had a first solo show titled “NOSTALGIA OF INDIAN STEAM LOCOMOTIVES“, after that in Delhi and abroad; UK, Dubai…
Kishore likes the drawing, when he was in art college, studied portrait and human figures. He loved to observe the light and shade on live object. Kishore crazy to capture the outdoor sequence. In that time he worked on watercolor, pencil, pen and ink. Biswas says “when I sketch any character I want to be act like them… I tried to enter more of the character too… still I habit to work like this…”
“For years, I woke up at midnight and started painting impromptu. I still find that very gratifying.” – Meet Kishore Pratim Biswas, Indian contemporary artist.
