Chandra Bhattacharjee: He was studied at the Indian College of Art & Draftsmanship, Kolkatta and his PG from Rabindra Bharati University, Calcutta with a gold medal. Chandra Bhattacharjee's canvases are languid and far removed from the urban world. Dusky men and women exist in an ethereal realm untouched by the madness of everyday city life, carrying out their daily chores. Bhattacharjee's compositions are influenced by the 'Santhal' tribe of West Bengal; the textural quality of his paintings are strongly reminiscent of the traditional mud walls of these villages, smeared with cow-dung. The world of Bhattacharjee’s creation is without boundaries; where humans, animals and surreal creatures coexist in harmony. He has held several group as well as solo exhibitions of his works in India and abroad.
