I am...
My childhood days were spent in rural Bengal amidst various hardships,it was a struggle to carry on my studies and so there was no question of any formal training in painting.But the resplendence of colours that life unfolds in the varied canvases of experience had entrenched a deep facination in my mind.I was and still am enrapture with the element and primordial forces that lie nascent and unchanging even as the world around us shifts from one hue to the other.For me therefore,the figure of woman in all her splendour and subduedness has remined the predominant influence in life as well as art-in the simple aspects of her daily life,in her raging anger and benevolence as witnessed through folk tales,mythology and other sources.The complex and gyrating lines in my paintings are a symbolic quest for this primeval force embedded in her.I have tried to capture her in various moods-of rapturous contentment or desolation,as a mother figure or as blushful maiden and so on,emphasizing in all these varying panegyrics the mystery of life that surreptitiously keeps writing its own story of creation.
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.

Bewitching lines

 

 

 Nabakishore Chanda’s paintings seem to emanate from the earth itself despite the intricacy of lines that seem to dominate them. The pristine quality of the faces that emerge from the lines startle us with their freshness which reminds us of vernal showers at times. On the other hand , a sense of mystery seems to tease us out of thought as we gaze at…
