Artist
Malay Saha
Kolkata, India

Malay Saha’s artwork illustrates the limitless visual possibilities that exist in our everyday world of mundane objects. There is a warm intimacy and unforced charm in the way the artist brings together a multiplicity of homely objects inside a room. There is consummate artistry in the way Malay paints his scenes. Every image, however small, is minutely detailed and perfected. The artist improvises further on the detailing, weaving his own charming distortions of form and perspective, and imaginary patterns into ordinary objects. The colours Malay uses are exquisitely warm and vibrant – the colours of life.

Easel Stories Recommends
Out of the box, surprising, engaging- all describe Malay’s works. The magician that he is, Malay enthuses a magical life into everyday inanimate objects in his minutely detailed artworks. You’ll just want to keep following his brushstrokes once you look at his art! Malay’s Easel Stories are a charming commentary on the intimacy between the physical environment and the sensitive mind.
