I am...
For Nabakishore Chanda, painting is the spontaneous expression of the creative impulse within him. A self trained artist, this latent ability was unleashed one fine day, when he was urged by a friend to complete a painting he was casually working on. From then on, Nabakishore began his rendition of beautiful, mythopoeic painting dominated by lines and colours.
Born in 1964 on 4th January in a remote village of West Bengal, his emergence as an artist was not very easy as from childhood itself he had to fight against tremendous financial odds. Today he is a senior lecturer in a South Kolkata college and also a budding name in the field of painting. He has earned accolades from renowned artists and has many exhibitions to his credit. He has also designed covers of books and his work has recently been used in a documentary on Shakti Chattopadhyay.

About my artwork
'VERSIFICATION OF LINE AND COLOUR'
Line is the forte of Nabakishore's paintings. They swirl, surge, intertwine, even retreat and move diagrammatically convering the pictorial space. Nabakishore lets his pen or brush move on the paper freely. The figures born out of those lines and of the exuberant colour splashes have a naive charm about them. They show faces of a next-door girl or of a folk deity and recall the images that we see in folk art of rural Bengal. In his paintings, symboils including the phallic ones create a primordial ambience. His browns and yellows, red and greens trapped in the darkness make up a rich fabric of forms.
Nabakishore is a self taught painter who teaches Bengali language and literature in a college. his knowledge of medieval Bengali poetry is simply reflected in the images that he paints. As a painter, he recreates the world of mythology and folklore in a visual language that seems unique.

In love with death

In love with death(Acrylic on canas,24"x30") --------------------------------------------------------

Life and death go hand in hand, life always nursing deep within a love for death and a desire to meet it.

The Pensive sculpture


Many forms and shapes seem lost and floating in distant and dusty past. The muted colours unleash a sense of romanticism.
