Even that time I didn’t finish the series of “NOSTALGIA OF INDIAN STEAM LOCOMOTIVES“…. Yes I had a couple of scribble book on steam locomotives. Which is the inspiration to do this series. I did a lot of sketch on the Indian railways worker like; signal man, firemen, technical man, divers and other. I captured their character, life style and the locomotive workshop. Which represent the Indian railways in 70’s. Indian steam locomotives had a unique character. The locomotives looked very noisy, muddy and rusted, the people were very informal, looking dark and beard face with a red pagri. It was so interesting to me” say Biswas… and that is his nostalgia on steam locomotives.

What I remember that last time I went to sketch the steam engines at Bandel Locomotives Workshop (West Bengal, India) in 1992. The day was sad, to hear that the steam locomotives was obsoleted in India. Those were disassembled and dispatched to go in museum and for scrap. After that I didn’t do any live sketch of the engine in my SCRIBBLE BOOK”. says Biswas… That scribble books is only the source, where had the old collections of 70’s Indian steam locomotives.

Kishore Pratim Biswas

For years, I would wake up at midnight and start painting. I still find that very gratifying.” - Kishore Pratim Biswas

Kishore’s 15-year journey in contemporary art has not only strengthened his unconventional thought process, but his painting style too. 

Born in Kolkata, Kishore has been passionate about art since childhood. After graduating in Fine Arts from Government College of Art & Craft, Kolkata, 1996. Kishore spent some struggling years in his hometown and then moved to Mumbai in 2009.

Today Kishore has his own studio in Mumbai. Kishore started by painting with watercolours. But his talent knew no bounds. Gradually, he switched to painting acrylic on canvas. Today, he stands on a solid intellectual platform and his work reflects a unique streak, where colour is of great importance, and form happens to be incidental. He uses the texture in the canvas as well as other experimental methods to add finishing touches to his meticulous paintings. Kishore is an expert in acrylic, oil, watercolor, mix media, charcoal, and soft pastels. 

For a long time, Kishore has practised as a junior artist under the able guidance of Bikash Bhattacharya, Sunil Das, Samir Mondal, Ganash Halui, Ashok Bhaumik, and other renowned artists. He has also been inspired by Shahabuddin Ahmed, M F Hussain. 

Kishore had a solo exhibition in Kolkata in 1996. In 1997, he displayed his work of art at several group shows around the country. Even though Kishore has a long way to go, his paintings are slowly making their way into the homes of collectors of modern Indian art.
