NIKHIL BISWAS

Nikhil Biswas was born in Kolkata, he was an art activist and a firm believer in collective action. A founder member of the Calcutta Painters Group and The Society of Contemporary Artists. He has completed his diploma in Fine Arts from the Government College of Arts and Crafts, Kolkata. ate artist dealt with reality per se and portrayed images that showed the essential loneliness of the human spirit.orking as an illustrator for Bengali news weeklies Darpan and Janasebak Saptahik, and in search for significant images to express the political and social turmoil of his time, Biswas proclaimed humanist preoccupations. His work was a testimony to humanistic ethics. Filled as much with gestures of struggle or pain, as they were with the rebellion against the very suffering they depicted, the paintings were deeply related to his moods. His quest for the root of our existence led him to a point where he felt that dehumanization became the natural order of things. He removed himself from the decorativeness of contemplative Indian art. His monumental rolling pictures show his interest in murals. With all its contemplation, his work is very powerful and intense. Though concerned with having to earn his living, he was keen on creating a body of realistic art that was national in its scope and color. His works travelled abroad and were exhibited in Europe. Some of his drawings are in the permanent collection of the Halle Museum in Dresden, Germany. Despite a very short life span the artist produced around ten thousand works, mostly black and white drawings on paper.
