Commission Request
Artist
Bikas Poddar
New Delhi, India

Born in Kaliyaganj, North Bengal, Bikas Poddar studied at the College of Art and Craft, Kolkata, for five years and achieved his diploma in Applied Art with a gold medal. This was followed by a long stint of jobs as a Designer and Art Director in various advertising agencies. He turned to painting full time in the nineties, following the success of his shows held in Delhi, Mumbai and other metros. His works are about expressions and evocations. They evoke memories in the viewer and these memories take the viewer directly to experiential references as well as artistic references. Bikash's works, though predominantly naturescapes, feature human figures engaged in conversation. The nature represented is pregnant with tensions that are enshrouded in a tricky calmness.
