About Artist

Born in Kolkata, Anjan Das doesn’t require any theme or style to bind him. He is unbounded, unshackled when it comes to creating his desires, his emotions and experiences on paper. It may be beyond comprehension for some but for him, his artwork has meaning that is understood by very few sensible minds that see things for what they are and not as what they appear. Randomness and accidental happenings form essence of his artworks. In his words, “My work is reflection of feelings within. These feelings find form after examining them consciously and playing with my senses. I am very aware of earlier culture and times, and I am especially interested in the notion of how man has left behind evidence of his presence. I like to use a simple technique and limited colours that would convey simplicity of life and culture.”
