Artist Profile

Mazumdar's paintings operate on fracture. Composed of bold brushstrokes, elements of collage, abstract spaces and layered figurative imagery, Mazumdar's raw, almost expressionistic, canvases create a powerful emotional response. Mazumdar graduated from the Government College Kolkata in 1981 with a First Class First in Painting. He has held a variety of solo and group shows in Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi, Paris and New York, including special exhibitions such as 'Exhibition for the African National Congress', Kolkata Information Centre, Kolkata 1988 and 'Confluence Art Camp for French & Indian artists', Alliance Francaise, Kolkata, 1992, Saffronart in Los Angeles 2001 and Saffronart & The Guild, 2004. His work can be found in the collections of the National Gallery of Modern Art, Delhi and the Seagull Foundation, Kolkata. The artist currently resides in Kolkata.
