Artist Statement

SOURAJATA

His childhood and  turning into a  budding creative painter

“It was a childhood with full¬† of dreams in his innocent¬† eyes that has spent¬† in watching the potters¬† and the Idol makers in his locality that how magically a simple lump of clay is turning into an Idol of God¬† or a Magnificent Pot . His innocent mind¬† spent days¬† in watching this magical¬† happening of art Nouveau. It continued relentlessly despite a havoc whoop of his parents. His absorbent mind couldn’t even tantalize¬† when his childhood¬† busy schedule for¬† Fishing in the¬† farm house pond, Flying kite in the field has come to an end¬† and replaced with making replicas of all of them he had been watching all along¬† and bloomed into a budding Artist from little to a little tougher.¬† He kept on practicing all replicas that he has so observed¬† but had been failing¬† to manifest the livelihood in them like the professionals experts he had been watching all day along . His failure¬† of manifestation drove him¬† to exercise and¬† execute a heaping number of replicas Gods’s Idols .¬† How many lumps of clay¬† he has¬† wasted , how many sheets of paper he has torn in making¬† toward the perfection¬† of Art and creation he possibly could not estimated.¬† How many hours , how many months he spent,¬† hopefully the time itself have kept a record. And this has lacerated, ruptured, saddened , humiliated , drowned¬† childishly novice¬† Sourajata’s adolescent mind¬† but the glory of creation and the freedom of expression¬† maddened him. He kept on creating and¬† kept on doing new ideas , new God’s idols.¬† Thus, the play of creativity, freedom of expression , overwhelming¬† joy, gently¬† reaching to exuberance of art practice¬† ¬†has occupied an unfathomed¬† determination over his entire body and mind to make¬† Art practice ” A LIFE TIME CAREER ” he then grown up¬† to a teen aged boy…

The pain, joyfulness, skill¬† of depiction,language of expression , ecstasy¬† page after page in all¬† those master’s¬† creation and the biography of them has catered him the best lesson of¬† what is the art education and what is¬† the determination you need to be an artist as a whole.

About Sourajata‚Äôs work as a creative painter –

His Works are ‚ÄúDynamism‚ÄĚ. His works – are theatrical and a fathomless presentation of dynamism. Although he does not believe in any ism or intentionally paint in that so. But it portrays his style of work in this manner only. His slogan – MY WORKS ARE DYNAMISM.¬† That his life is full of frictions¬† and he has always given an utmost try to overcome them. And whenever the challenges¬† have repeatedly appeared in his life he has always treated them like ever before. The slogan of his life also ‚ÄúNot to leave unless you reach the point‚ÄĚ. It might take a number of failures, may be a thousand or more even more and more. He keeps on and keeps on doing unless he reaches that or get that. So, he paints that only. Initially it resembles a presentation being influenced by European Surrealism but substantially that does not replicate.
The colours he uses are very vibrant and the form he selects are very masculine which is the positive energy source for the manifestation . The subject he takes is having a mystical and classical memories and stature. Consciously  he has never painted pathos as he believe it dividends nothing in return but leaves only a heavy heart. In his very recent works mysticism and the wholesomeness of the cosmos has come consciously or unconsciously. In many of his works a theatrical spot light has been noticed, used on a multiple objects projected from a multiple sources for creating a mesmerizing visual scenic beauty. In some of his works we can observe use of anti perspective law of nature portrayed with bold black and grey lines.
His expounding artistic strength and exuberance was witnessed from the very beginning of his artistic career through a¬† several multiple leading shows with the ace painters, he has participated and left a very significant mark there. He has exhibited his works in Italy, Singapore Australia, China, Malaysia and many more countries and all metro cities of INDIA. There are a number obscure personalities Art Galleries, Museum, top Corporate around the country to admire and collect his works. His works were reviewed in several print and electronic medias. Despite his mastery over painting Sourajata is very passionately creating sculpture, fashion garments, water colour paintings, ceramic potteries also. He is multi special and he believe in ART TOTALITY‚ÄĚ
Sourajata was born in India, Kolkata in 1968, an Indian National. Presently he is based at Kolkata, India.
