Akhil Chandra Das

Akhil Chandra Das is a renowned sculptor from West Bengal who has explored the medium extensively to create art forms. He has finished his education at M.S University, Baroda, and MVA in sculpture. Akhil Chandra Das is a talented sculptor who uses bronze and wood to make complex social commentary. His animal forms are an allegory for the issues that plague the contemporary world. His work has always taken a swipe at the cultural decadence, hypocrisy, capitalism, and erosion of values. He evokes these ideas through surreal and mythological imageries with a sense of the absurd. His sculptures are a cynical reflection on the idea of displacement and identity. His first solo show was at Jehangir Art Gallery, in 2002. He has participated in several group shows like the Harmony Show, and National Exhibition. His works are in several private collections in Bombay, Baroda, Assam, Delhi, Bangalore, Pondicherry, USA, Japan, and Australia.
