Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

In the Mughal era, we see kings and queens looking out into their natural space - scenic beauty containing nature and architecture. Given the settings, what would happen if the king were to do the same thing today? What scenic placement would he have? This is what the series 'Urban Empire' deals with.

Artist Profile

Born: 1983

Hometown: Kolkata

Based in: Kolkata

Abhijit is an Indian Pop Art artist from Kolkata. He was born and raised in north Kolkata that was the capital of British India andknown for its colonial architecture. He hails from a family of artists and grew up observing the works of his father, grandfather and uncles.
He draws inspiration from the urban landscapes of Kolkata with its narrow streets inundated by rickshawsand trams,arrays of temples, mosques and churcheslining the city and the scenic views of the Howrah Bridge over the Hooghly River. The fine works of the artisans of Kumortuly, the traditional potters’ quarter in North Kolkata renowned for making clay idols for various festivals,also fascinates him.
During his lifetime, he has seen the magnificent buildings of the British era become dilapidated and eventually being replaced by the new. The shift was alsoevidentin the lifestyle of people. It was apparent that he was growing up in a period of transition and this shaped his thought process andeventually became the subject of his works. Occasionally, Abhijit has paintedIndian mythological gods and goddessas well uncovering the cultural influence the city of Kolkata has had on him.
