Featured Artist - Samba Prasad Biswas

Samba Prasad Biswas

About My Work:

My artworks are a continuous process of searching for balance, rhythm and harmony through the integration of line, colour and space. Sources for my imagery abound in the world of architecture, in fragments of every day life, in pattern and colour traditions of multiple cultures. While rendering, I try to manifest the colours and patterns in a harmonious way to keep the eyes of the viewer intersted. The picture making process does require a balance between the rational and the intuited.
