Kishore Pratim Biswas, Indian Contemporary Artist

The solo show “Nostalgia of Seam Locomotives” at Bajaj Art Gallery in Mumbai of Kishore Pratim Biswas on the unique concepts of Steam Locomotives has been a perfect blend of Indian contemporary style. The exhibition was appreciated by art lovers and critics as one of the most refreshing artworks of the present time.

The series, focusing on moments like steam locomotive workshops and the people working there, offering a grandiose presentation of the past, has been an eye catchy and stylistically superior presentation. Indeed, his works shows his years of experience and stylistic splendor at every level.

Once the artist finishes his art education, he gets thrust into a period of discovery, investigation, and significant responsibility. Kishore agrees that the creator and the completed work of art engage in a dialogue throughout the creative process. Inspiration may strike as soon as the connection is made, and the onlooker transcends into a different world of romanticism.

Kishore’s time in his childhood is imbued with these memories of steam locomotive workshops, the workshop people working at the lines, inside the workshops, watering the heated steam locomotives, and taking care of the engines through different means. When it comes to the history of Indian rail, these moments are counted golden.

In 2014, Kishore had a solo show “Nostalgia of Steam Locomotives” at the Bajaj Art Gallery, in Mumbai. Well-renowned artists like Mr. Samir Mondal visited the art exhibition. Needless to say, Mr. Mondal, 71, who is mostly known as “The Watercolour Man”, is a well-renowned face in the world for painting, just like Mr. Biswas’s paintings. Mr. Mandal said he can recall his old memories of Steam Locomotives.

From an early age, he was enamored with watercolours, and he has stayed dedicated to the medium all the way through college and until the present day. His paintings of  flowers, insects, animals, and even humans have been praised for their lifelike detail and his confident, even lyrical, brushwork. Walking through an exhibition of his art might be hypnotic. Mr. Samir now spends a great deal of his time contributing to the revival of watercolour art. His extensive career has seen him create a wide range of themed exhibitions, including “The War, The Butterflies,” a presentation about the Gulf War; “Let’s Rock,” a depiction of the complexities of urban life; “Here the Civilization Ends,” an expression of political discontent; and many others.

The two artists both of them coming from the same educational institution, the Govt. College of Art & Craft, Kolkata, has immense respect and appreciation for each other’s artwork. Mr. Mondal praised the artworks done by Kishore Pratim Biswas, who created these vibrant artworks in acrylic medium. His admiration has been of great value to Kishore Pratim Biswas as he continues to delve deep into his creations that are to these cherishing moments.
