Shuvaprasanna’s(b.1947) aesthetic genre that includes some superb charcoal drawings,etchings & paintings which have as their subject the City of Joy,his abode & playing field since birth. The prolific artist,known for his series including those around the city,it’s people,birds,animals,clocks,wraps & flowers with varied nuances,has also created an extraordinary body of work on much revered icons. Besides portraiture,graphics,drawings,paintings,sculptures & mixed media art,Shuvaprasanna’s repertoire encompasses a large body of varied work-writing,illustrations & designs for book covers & posters.
By the 1990’s his palette & images began to display a free flowing oeuvre. His Still Life imagery adorns a closer-to-reality appearance,tailing their natural flaws & lines,rather than as idyllic paintings. The ‘Illusion’ series,with sexual undertones that feature sensuousness through flowers,radiate the bliss of touch & acceptance. Insects,animals,all meet & mate to carry on with the cycle of life.
