The calm and the quaint moon represents the search for tranquility and peace of the soul. However, the pursuit of peace gets tattered amidst the shackles of the brown dry branches of responsibilities, conflicts and torment.
Dipayan Ghosh captures the dramatic and awe-inspiring subjects of abstract Fauvism. His application is confident, full of bravado and relies primarily on oil, acrylic, soft pastels and charcoal.
Born in Kolkata, a city whose very soul is drenched in the vibrancy of art & culture, Dipayan’s work is inspired by bold colours, passionate brush strokes and spirited themes which stimulates the senses and fires the imagination.
He started his journey in art during his early childhood and was deeply moved by the quintessential art of the European Renaissance era. His love for this ancient art movement manifested in many of his early year paintings. He tutored under a teacher affiliated with the Academy of Fine Arts in Kolkata who further introduced him to the techniques of the likes of Bikash Bhattacharya, Paresh Maity and Jatin Das. Having dabbled with various mediums and gone through the typical rigmarole of oil pastels, pencil sketches and watercolour, he found his niche in oil, acrylic and charcoal.
As a passionate Fauve, he aspires to represent the myriad emotions of the human soul through wild expressions and use art to bring in a positive change.
Dipayan holds a Bisharad Diploma from Rabindra Bharati University, West Bengal and is a member of The National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society in Houston, USA. His artwork has been exhibited in Mumbai Art Fair and curated by the 1340ART Magazine in Netherlands.
Some of his eminent work is included in numerous private art collections in Kolkata and Mumbai. He has also created many commissioned works of art and has found favour amongst the fraternity.
