Sanat Kar was born in West Bengal in 1935 and achieved his diploma in painting from The Government College of Art & Craft,Calcutta. A majority of Kar's work is surreal in mood,feeling and content. They have a child-like curiousity where his figures appear in dream-like appearances. As a result, his oeuvre hovers over the edge of reality and his work is symbolic of the mysteries of life to which there are often no answers.
Kar's paintings are silent and his palette ranges from mauve,dark green,browns and sepia,magentas and grey. A majority of his works play on the deep,dark recesses of the human mind. Figures and objects are distorted and barely recognisable and leave an uncomfortable feeling behind them.
Kar has exhibited his work extensively across the world. ArtsIndia,New York (2006), Akarprakar,Kolkata(2006), Bengal Foundation,Dhaka(2000) Festival of India(1988) amongst others.
