Manas Roy

Born in 1954 in Kolkata, Dr Manas Roy is a Dutch artist of Indian Origin. He has been creating visual art under the signature of Roymans in Europe, Far East and Indian Sub-continent for the last two decades. The human phenomenon is Roymanas’ central theme. The task of the artist is to present those things, to make visible the painted canvas that is inside each one of us. He is a unique combination of Engineer & Visual artist, holding PhD. in Engineering and M. F. A. (Fine Arts) from U. S. A. His art trainings of over 22 years include training in Indian Fine Arts from Indian Masters, Impressionist art form from Paris & Le Mans, Mediterranean art and sculptures from Milan and finally in Chinese brush works from South China Master Painter Kwan Su Yang.

At the age of 18, before migrating to Europe, he already received the Indian National Award from Rastriya Lalit Kala Academy of India in Indian Contemporary Painting. Intense travel in three continents made his work beyond the demographical or cultural boundaries fusing one into another as a free flow form yet keeping its root intact.
