Mukherjee from Bengal uses reverse oil or acrylic painting on transparent acrylic sheets in the Bengal School figurative tradition. His inspiration comes from observing people while he travels extensively in Bengal. Mukherjee`s figures are dressed in the bright, almost gaudy orange, red and green costumes that street performers wear. They all relate their story of daily Bengal interaction as they group together.

About the Artist :

Mukherjee was born in 1961, and spent all of his college years in Santiniketan, first completing his BFA in 1987, and then his MFA in 1989 from the Rabindra Bharati University. He is an artist who has spent his entire life in Calcutta, only venturing out to attend showings of his works, and only speaking in Bengali. Mukherjee’s favourite medium is reverse oil or acrylic painting on transparent acrylic sheets, and he swears that although he may change his themes and subjects, inventing new ones for new shows, he will never give up painting in this medium.

About his work :

In Mukherjee’s work, we see the Bengal School strong figurative tradition being carried ahead and interpreted in a very contemporary idiom. The artist also likes to focus on the fact that each individual has a great deal in common with every other one. This is why he paints people in pairs or larger groups, highlighting that though they are physically separate and unlike each other, there is no real difference between their characters and behaviours.

Mukherjee’s favourite medium is reverse oil or acrylic painting on transparent acrylic sheets, and he swears that although he may change his themes and subjects, inventing new ones for new shows, he will never give up painting in this medium.
